Podcast 113: Junior Ranger Adventures

Episode 113 of RV Industry News is a special edition podcast featuring a rather young, but enterprising young man.

Stanten Smith may only be 10 years old, but he’s already accomplished something many experienced RVers have yet to do.  He has visited almost 200 national parks and monuments, and chronicled his journey on his own blog site. His goal is to visit all 413 of them all before he turns 18.

Junior Ranger Adventures quietly launched earlier this year and is ready to show children and teens what fun they can have visiting America’s national parks and participating in the National Park Service’s Junior Ranger program.

Stanten and his parents are full-time RVers and have been for several years. But, because Stanten is “roadschooled,” as they call it in Fulltime Families lingo, the family turned the park visits into an educational opportunity for him and many of his assignments became part of the website.

Stanten’s enthusiasm for his project is evident as he tries to encourage millions of other students to take advantage of some pretty special training available either free or at very low cost at national parks and monuments nationwide.
