Junior Navigators is for boys and girls ages 5-10. Through games, crafts, excursions to museums, nature walks and camping, children build camaraderie, character and a basic understanding of the world and cultures around them. These levels are based on age more than achievement. We are developing material for ages 5 and 6 called Stargazers, but don’t have patches yet. You are welcome to start Chapters at these early age levels.
The first level is for children ages 7-8. Mira, named after the Giant Binary Red star about 418 light years away, means wonderful. Just like this “wonderful” star, the Mira level teaches children just how wonderful our world is through simple fun studies and projects that explore nature through science, art and games.
The second level is for children ages 8-9. Vega is the second brightest star in the northern hemisphere. This blue star is the “jewel” in the harp of the constellation Lyra. At this level the children begin to experience their important roles in the world through civic projects, overnight camping and skill building activities and games.
