Become a Junior Ranger!

Kids of all ages can earn a Junior Ranger badge from the African Burial Ground National Monument. To be a Junior Ranger is a special honor and privilege. Kids may earn a Junior Ranger badge by completing a number of activities related to the site. After completing the Activity Booklet, you will receive a certificate, get sworn in as a Junior Ranger, and get to wear a badge, just like Park Rangers wear. The Junior Ranger Activity Booklet is available at the visitor center or by downloading it online.
