Junior Ranger Program (Ages 8-12) Based on the National Park Junior Ranger Programs, our program is offered as a self guided experience. Each participant will receive a Discovery Booklet, a beautiful patch and a colorful certificate of completion.  The Discovery Booklet encourages children to learn about the natural and cultural history of our Cañon from to Starsmore Discovery Center. The Junior Ranger Program is also offered as guided program.

Tipi Raising and Ute Heritage Workshop (Grades 3-6) This adventurous program involves some hiking, transporting and setting up an authentic tipi, and learning about the way of life of the native Ute People through interactive, hands-on experiences. 

Golden Prospects (Grades 3-5) Learn the technique of panning for gold, what gold looks like among fools, and where it can be found in the state. Discuss the Colorado Gold Rush of 1859, discover items from the 1800s in a prospector’s pack and imagine camp life then with a real tent.

Insects Everywhere (Grades 2-4) Children discover insects that lurk in the leaf litter, hang out in the trees, hide in the creek, and fly with amazing wings.  It's all hand-on and you don't know what kind of little creature you will uncover.

Wildlife Habitats (Grades 1-3) Find out about the fascinating animals that are our wildlife "neighbors" in Colorado Springs. Discover more about our mountain habitat by hiking to find the habitat log learning stations.

Nature Detectives (Grades K-2) Learn about Colorado Wildlife and their specialized senses that help them survive.  Students will use their five senses to experience this mountainous, natural park.

Andy's Animal Senses (Ages 3-5) Andy walks children through his world of touch, sight, smell and hearing. He introduces young explorers to his animal friends with special noses, paws, eyes and ears. This award winning program features hands-on activities and a walk through the woods.
