Junior Rangers


Junior Ranger logoJunior Rangers are aged 11 to 18 and work alongside the National Park Rangers and the Learning and Discovery Team to help look after the special qualities of the Peak District National Park.

The Junior Ranger programme operates across Europe and is affiliated to the Europarcs Federation.

What do Junior Rangers do?

  • Find out about how Rangers look after the National Park
  • Spend time in the outdoors doing practical tasks
  • Have fun learning new skills with people your own age
  • Help members of the public enjoy being in the National Park.

Here is a video made by the Millers Dale group of Junior Rangers:

Where do they work?

There are four Junior Ranger groups run by the Peak District National Park and three run by our partners:

  • Dovestones (near Oldham) (run by Saddleworth Environment Education)
  • Eastern Moors (Barbrook Moor and Froggatt) (run by Eastern Moors Partnership)
  • Edale
  • Hardwick Hall (run by the National Trust)
  • Longdendale (near Glossop)
  • Marsh Farm (Tittesworth Reservoir)
  • Millers Dale (near Bakewell and Buxton)

What will be my time commitment?

  • This will vary from group to group but is usually once a month.

How will this help me for the future?

  • You will be helping to look after the countryside and will be able to put this work experience on your CV, raising your profile for future applications and interviews. It will also help you become more independent and confident working with different people of all ages.

Who do I contact?

Contact us saying where you live and we'll send you an application form. We'll contact the group nearest to you and find out whether they have any places available.
