Junior Ranger Program

A Junior Park Ranger program is available at the Visitor Center so children can learn more about Fort Davis during their visit. Participants must complete the program to the best of their ability to earn a free Junior Ranger badge or patch.

A version is available in Braille and in large text format for visually-impaired youth. Allow 1 to 1½ hours to complete.
