SUMMER RANGERS

Summer Rangers and Planet Rangers programs share the same values – culture, creativity and community. 

Activities are crafted thematically, allowing kids to immerse in the world we’re visiting-whether we’re hiking and caving at Geology Rocks or making Cava’s famous gazpacho at World’s Best Chefs.

Here kids make new friends as they learn, explore and share adventures together.  The program is hands-on and kid-focused, with tons of teambuilding designed to help each camper feel accepted and find a way to shine. 

Our staff to camper ratio is one to three, assuring loads of attention for every child. As seasoned educators, our staff have as much fun as the campers. From researching topics to designing cooperative, experiential adventures; our mission is to make every moment a great one. Campers come home bubbling over with new knowledge, happy from a day well-spent, and eager for more.

Each Summer Rangers session starts at our Portsmouth location and offers campers a full day of games, creative projects, learning, exploration and true adventure. The camp operates from 9:00 am until 3:00 pm each day with snacks, materials and field trip transportation provided. Seven different one-week sessions are available for boys and girls entering grades two through six.
