For Kids

Junior Ranger Program

Do you want to be a Junior Ranger? The park has a Junior Ranger program for children who tour the Visitor Center/Museum and downtown area. Ask for the Junior Ranger booklet at the information desk. When you finish, take it back to get your Junior Ranger badge.

Junior Trail Ranger Program

The park now has a Junior Trail Ranger program. Children may pick up a program guide at the visitor center and complete walking at least three designated trails and complete five activities. They will then return to the park visitor center to receive an award pin.

Trading Cards

Kids! Collect stories about the Civil War and civil rights! The National Park Service is offering more than 500 trading cards to mark the 150th anniversary of the Civil War. Visit a park in person to earn a card (sorry, cards cannot be mailed). Ask a ranger or stop by the visitor center at a participating park, such as this one.
