Our Junior Ranger program partners with local naturalists to share the wonders of the wilderness with The Ranch at Laguna Beach kids. Junior Ranger activities give our youngest guests the chance to enjoy nature while making new friends and learning about the land.
Led by local Laguna Canyon Foundation naturalists
Learn: Junior Rangers will walk through The Ranch LB’s camp, imagining that they just landed here and had to survive. What resources are available for shelter and food? What animal instincts do we, as humans, have to protect ourselves? What creatures do we share this canyon with and how do we all survive?
Create: Junior Rangers will observe animal pelts and skulls, make animal tracks and discover how local animals adapt to this environment.
Explore: Junior Rangers will learn about hunting and gathering vs. farming; predators, prey and camouflage; and finding and building shelter in the canyon.
Learn: Junior Rangers will learn about raptors through an interactive experience presented by the Orange County Bird of Prey Center.
Create: Using a pinecone and other indigenous elements, little ranchers will design and create their own owls to take home.
Explore: We’ll head out on a nature hike to search for birds. We’ll even bring along our Audubon expert to point out various species.
We set up daily events to make family time at Ranger Station all the more memorable. Learn to build artful sand castles, join us for outdoor movies, gaze into the stars—and that's just the beginning.
Lose the electronics and all the gadgets that just get in the way. Come to The Ranch LB to kick back, unplug and make memories with the ones you love most. There’s no better place to enjoy the beauty of family time.
Bring the whole family for a storytelling event and drum circle during the magic hour when some of our favorite neighbors, the deer, appear. Ben’s Pantry will be open late with goodies, desserts and drinks for purchase.
Kid’s Happy Hour
Stop by the Harvest Patio for complimentary hot chocolate and lawn games, with healthy snacks and s’mores kits for purchase.
