Be A Junior Ranger
Explore. Learn. Protect.
The National Park Service’s Junior Ranger program began in the 1960s and was adopted to help kids and their families explore and learn about their national parks, cultivating future generations of park stewards.
Participate in the Junior Ranger program at Castle Clinton National Monument, and learn about the early history of New York and America, and the National Park Service.
