Be A Junior Ranger
National Park Service
As a Junior Ranger, you can help protect natural and historic areas in our country! To become a Junior Ranger and earn your badge, simply ask for the Junior Ranger Activity Booklet and complete the pages for your age group.
Ages 6-8 must complete the pages marked with a magnifying glass. Ages 9-12 must complete the pages marked with the binoculars. After you finish the activities, bring your completed book to the POW Museum. You will be given your badge and be sworn in as an official Junior Ranger.
You can also download the Junior Ranger Booklet and complete the activities at your house. Mail in your Junior Ranger booklet to the park and we will send you your official Junior Ranger badge to show to all your friends!
Mail your completed booklet with your return address to:
