Appomattox Court House National Historical Park's Junior Ranger Program makes your family's visit to the park a special adventure where children learn to care for our National Parks while having fun with puzzles, games and trivia challenges.

Designed for children ages 6 to 13, the program typically takes one (1) hour to complete. Just pick up a Junior Ranger workbook upon your arrival at our visitor center. As you tour the park and museum, complete the questions in the book to receive a certificate and a Junior Ranger Badge.
