For Kids

Fort Dupont Park offers many programs just for kids. Jr. Rangers programs are offered every Thursday at 3:30pm and meet at the Activity Center. Once a child has completed a certain number of activities through our Jr. Ranger book they are awarded with an official Jr. Ranger badge and certificate.

Each park in National Capital Parks-East has a different Jr. Ranger program and a child may take part in each one. This means that they can become official Jr. Rangers at several different parks, earning a badge and certificate at each park.

If transportation is problematic then your child can earn his or her Jr. Ranger badge and certificate by becoming a WebRanger.
