Kuna Rangers is currently a free youth summer program that the City of Kuna Parks and Recreation Department runs to help keep kids active for about 6 weeks a summer.
Kids participate in outdoor activities geared towards respecting the environment and community. The activities will range from learning about farms and gardening to historical and wildlife observation. They will learn the ins and outs of the park system from cleanup to caring for the trees.
The Kuna Park Ranger Program is opened to the following grades:
3rd to 5th Grades: There are 25 spots available. Children will meet in the park two times a week; Mondays and Wednesdays.
6th to 8th Grades: There are 25 spots available. Children will meet in the park two times a week; Tuesdays and Thursdays*.
* Weeks where a field trip or presentation is planned, we may have a combined trip to where this group will join the other on Wednesday and not meet on Thursday that week.
9th to 12th Grades: There are several volunteer opportunities available to our teen community members. These opportunities will include activities along the same lines as the younger kids, but with stronger purpose and leadership. They will have the ability to choose projects for the groups and guide them to completion. This is a great chance for older teens to earn volunteer recognition for college applications and job resumes.
