Be A Junior Ranger
We are looking for new recruits to become junior rangers during your visit to Fort Monroe National Monument. Junior ranger recruits will engage the historic features of Fort Monroe in their own time to complete a series of activities, earning a badge, a certificate, and the rank of junior ranger.
Junior ranger activity booklets are available in person at the following locations:
The Colonies RV and Travel Park
Freedom Support Center
The Junior Ranger Booklet can also be downloaded here.
