Junior Ranger Programs

The National Park Service Junior Ranger program is an activity-based program offering young visitors the opportunity to join the National Park Service “family” as Junior Rangers. Kids can complete a series of activities during a park visit, share their answers with a park ranger, and receive an official Junior Ranger patch and Junior Ranger certificate! Junior Rangers are typically between the ages of 5 to 13, although people of all ages can participate.

Below is a list of links to Junior Ranger details for each park — VA, MD, DC — who has their Junior Ranger information online. Keep in mind though, this program is national and the list is much longer! See the complete one here.
