Junior Ranger Program
What is the Junior Ranger Program?
The National Park Service Junior Ranger program is an activity based program conducted in national parks across the country. Many national parks offer young visitors the opportunity to join the National Park Service "family" as Junior Rangers. Interested youth complete a series of activities during their visit to Crater Lake National Park, share their answers with a park ranger, and receive an official Crater Lake Junior Ranger badge.
Junior Ranger Activities
Kids participate in a ranger-led activity to learn about Crater Lake and earn a Junior Ranger patch. Meet behind the Rim Visitor Center. These programs are geared for ages 6 to 12. Programs are offered daily between June 26 and September 7 at 1:30 pm, 3:00 pm, and 4:30pm.
