DO YOU HAVE A ‘BUSH CHILD” at home?
Give your child the gift of growing up close to nature…
After careful consideration and in response to hundreds of requests from parents and children alike, FGASA has decided to introduce a junior membership.
The categories have been divided into two age groups 8-12 years Pangolin and 13-17 Wild Dog. The motivation behind this decision is to provide young nature enthusiasts with the opportunity to learn more about the environment and to prepare them for a possible future in guiding or conservation, if they so choose.
Four times a year, during school holidays, AFRICAN BUSH TRAINING hosts FGASA endorsed JUNIOR RANGERS COURSES that was specially designed to establish a connection and ignite a passion for wildlife in the hearts and souls of young people.
During an action packed five-days on the reserve the Junior Rangers will learn about; experience and enjoy the bush under the guidance and close supervision of our qualified and well experienced instructors. They will track animals, feed the buffalos at our breeding station, go on game drives in search of the elusive leopards on the reserve, set camera traps to catch nocturnal wildlife on film, roast marshmallows over the fire at night and learn about the “bush kitchen”. This and much more is all part of the JUNIOR RANGERS experience…
Course participants will be presented with a full-colour course manual and workbook which needs to be worked trough and completed during the course of the week to be awarded with a FGASA Junior Nature Guide Certificate on the last day.
The JUNIOR RANGERS COURSE is an absolute must for every child to experience as it provides for a learning experience and positive developmental opportunity for children that cannot be matched by anything else in the world.
Special packages are available for parents to join younger children on course...
