Junior Ranger Program
The Junior Ranger program is provided for families with young visitors who wish to explore and learn about Fort McHenry. Parents are encouraged to assist their youngsters with gathering the answers to various questions about the fort's history. Begin at the Visitor Center, then explore the Visitor Center, Star Fort and grounds.
After completing the Activity Booklet, youngsters earn a Junior Ranger certificate and badge.
