Become a Junior Ranger at General Grant National Memorial

Children who visit General Grant National memorial can become a Junior Ranger by completing the program booklet on site. Stop by the visitor center to pick up a copy. After you complete it (ask a ranger or an adult with you for help if you need it!) turn it in at the visitor center to be sworn in and receive your official General Grant National Memorial Junior Ranger badge. Please note: The information necessary to complete the booklet can only be found on site, so a visit to "Grant's Tomb" is required for the General Grant National Memorial Junior Ranger Program. Please see the WebRanger program information by clicking on the "For Kids" link to the left if you can not visit yet, as an alternative.
