It's that time of the year again.... time to sign up the kids for the county ECHO Rangers program! If you are not familiar with the ECHO Rangers program now is the time to get to know it.
We love the ECHO Rangers program! It's a program that is for kids 1st-5th grades. You pay just $20 per child and they will get an activity book that is filled with awesome activities to choose from. And here's the cool thing - one adult gets to do each event free with them (one adult per child). So if you have one child, one adult gets to do each activity for free. If you have two children signed up, then two adults will get to go. It's so worth it!
Some of the events that you can do over the school year include eco-boat tours, hikes, museums, tours, art activities, and more. Lots of great things to choose from. And you don't pay anything else beyond that $20 per child sign-up fee. So all the events are free. You can't beat it. Wonderful program!
You can learn more about the ECHO Rangers program here. Last year was the first year that both of my kids were of age to sign up (I had been waiting!) and we loved it. They will be in it again this year, too.
Here are the sign-up times/locations. Just stop in at these times, fill out the registration form, pay the $20 per child, and you will be set!
