 Junior Naturalist Program

Parents, summer is just around the corner!  Are you worried your kids will waste all of their time indoors? Do your kids love being outside?  Are they always climbing that tree, finding that gopher tunnel, or jumping in puddles? If so, come check out the Junior Naturalist Program at the Redstreak Campground (just outside Radium Hot Springs, B.C) this summer!


The program’s goal is to excite youth about the cultural and natural history of Kootenay National Park and the great outdoors. Each day will have a theme - wildfires and wetlands, ect. During the camp, we will go on explorative hikes, play interactive games and examine hands on models and artifacts.  Moreover, participants will get the chance to meet Parks Canada staff and co-op students who will share their favorite stories and current research. In short, the idea is for kids to have a blast and enjoy the wonders of Kootenay National Park.
