Welcome to the South Carolina State Parks' Junior Ranger program website! Here you’ll learn lots of cool things about South Carolina and the great outdoors. From historic battlefields to the Hunting Island lighthouse, there’s always something fun to see and do in your state parks!

In the Junior Ranger Program you can do lots of neat things in the safety of your State Parks. As a Junior Ranger, you will have access to special programs and prizes. You even get a real Junior Ranger BADGE! With each level you complete, you will get different gifts and certificates.

As a Junior Ranger, you will be part of the team of South Carolina Parks making a difference every day. We’re excited to get started and can’t wait for you to come learn and play with us. So what do you say? Want to “COME OUT AND PLAY”?
