Be A Junior Ranger
Explore. Learn. Protect.
The National Park Service's Junior Ranger program began in the 1960s and was adopted to help kids and their families explore and learn about their national parks, cultivating future generations of park stewards.
Participate in the Junior Ranger program at General Grant National Memorial, and learn about General Grant, his tomb, and the National Park Service.
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.
Did You Know?
Ulysses Grant narrowly missed Abraham Lincoln’s assassination. Mr. and Mrs. Grant were invited to Ford Theater with President and Mrs. Lincoln. However, he and his wife decided to travel to New Jersey to visit their children instead. Had Grant attended, he may have been a target as well.
