Be A Junior Ranger
Jewel Cave has two Junior Ranger Programs. One is for children ages 5-8, and the other is for children ages 9-12. Completion of the program requires you to take a cave tour, plus spend between 30 minutes to one hour completing the activity booklet. You will earn a badge after you complete the program. Ask for a Junior Ranger Program booklet when you visit. There is no charge for this activity.
Did You Know?
From the elevator entrance, it takes over 11 hours for explorers to reach unexplored sections at the end of Jewel Cave. Some survey trips require cavers to remain underground for up to 4 days.
