Summer Junior Ranger Series
Every summer, George Rogers Clark NHP hosts a series of events called the "Summer Junior Ranger Series."
This is a series of events, one every month, over the course of the summer. Every event has a different theme- such as, "Learn to be a Frontiersman Day," or "Archaeology Day."
For every event a child attends, they will earn a certificate. For the first event a child attends, they will also receive a National Park pen and pencil set. For the second event a child attends, they will receive a special Junior Ranger badge. For the third event a child attends, they will receive a unique Summer Junior Ranger Series T-shirt!
These events are free and open to the public. These events always have a wide variety of activities, so children of all ages will find something to enjoy! Take a look at the 2014 Junior Ranger Series schedule on this website to see what this summer's events will be!
Also, feel free to call the park at 812-882-1776 to ask for more details.
