Wondering why so many families stick with Planet Rangers year-round? 

Simply put, it’s because we bring out great qualities in kids.

 

Throughout the year, campers and CITs love being part of these energized adventures, filled with hands-on learning that builds creativity, immersive storylines that embody different cultures, and countless opportunities for leading their self and others. Over the months and years, these practices help to develop kids’ sense of confidence and connection, inspiring them to express their best selves.

 

Campers and CITs tell us all the time that Planet Rangers is the best part of their day. They’re always part of the story, so they’re excited to share all about their adventures on the ride home. Community spirit and so much learning are on display each finale day, when kids pass on their new found knowledge to parents, friends and community members.
