Becoming A Junior Ranger At The Park

Being a Junior Ranger is a great way for your child to become involved with your National Park.

It is also a great way for the entire family to learn more about Dayton's only National Park and about the National Park Service. All interested future Junior Rangers, between the ages of 6-12, should report to the Wright-Dunbar Interpretive Center. At the front desk just ask for a Junior Ranger booklet to get started.

It's fun, FREE, and easy!

Come and join a growing group of kids who are interested in the world around them and involved with their nation's heritage. Become a Dayton Aviation Heritage National Historical Park Junior Ranger. Upon completion of the required activities in the booklet, each participant can receive a Junior Ranger badge at each location and have an official park ranger sign their certificates of completion. Children must be accompanied by an adult. For more information, please feel free to Contact us. Visit the Directions page for information on how to get to the park.
