Scottish Highlands


We are gathering supplies in preparation for a spirited 5-week adventure in Scotland. We’ve been searching the castle vaults for magical tales and cool facts and plan to catapult ourselves into a world of amazing stuff to experience and explore.


Once a week, every Monday OR every Tuesday

All Programs held at 129 Miller Ave, Portsmouth

Campers in 2nd-5th grades:  2:30 – 5:00pm

CITs in 6th-9th grades: 2:30 – 5:30pm

  • Little Harbour School: We meet those who attend Little Harbour at dismissal for the walk to our headquarters. John can be found standing on the sidewalk near the playground with a flag. Please have your child meet us there, dressed for the weather. It’s wise to let your child’s teacher know to dismiss them as a walker so they can meet Planet Rangers after school. We inform the front office of the same information.
    • If your child is going to miss a Planet Rangers day for any reasonbe sure to let us know so we’re not waiting for them at dismissal. John’s cell is (603) 957-0074.


  • Portsmouth Middle School:  CITs walk or bike the three blocks from school to Planet Rangers HQ at dismissal time.


  • All Other Schools: Many campers and CITs come to us from other great Seacoast schools. If that’s you, kindly drop your child at PR headquarters (address below) with our staff anytime between 2:30 and 3:15. If we are helping to coordinate carpool transportation, contact us by email to confirm arrangements.


When early release days happen on a program day, we now offer a super fun Early Birds program to cover the extra time kids have between the school’s noon dismissal days and our 2:30 program start time. Although there are no early release days during this session, keep this in mind for future programs! The cost is $25 per day. Arrival instructions are the same as above.


We provide a hearty Scottish snack at the start of each program day…a great time for kids to get to know the CITs and other campers… and try some food from the highlands!


Campers finish at 5:00, CITs at 5:30pm. Pickup is at the pumpkin church hall in Portsmouth. The address is 129 Miller Avenue. Although we’re usually deeply into the current day’s adventures and reluctant to cut it off, we do make a concerted effort to be done within 5 minutes of that time.

Just like the kids we serve, we’re learning and growing all the time too!

If you have feedback, questions or ideas that would improve the Summer Rangers experience for your child, please let us know.

We’d love to hear from you!
