Junior Ranger Programs
Hey Kids! If you'd like to become a Junior Ranger at the John Muir National Historic Site, all you have to do is ask for an activity book in the John Muir NHS Visitor Center. A ranger or your parents can help you with some of the activities and a ranger will need to sign your book once you are finished. If you complete the book, you will receive your own Junior Ranger Badge! Activities in the book will help you to learn more about why John Muir was important to our National Parks and with helping to encourage people to protect our beautiful land!
Be sure and stop by our Comment Board in the John Muir Visitor Center to write what you think about our current topic. There is always a fun poster that addresses current issues dealing with nature, conservation, John Muir or anything we feel might help you talk with your children about important topics. Color pencils and cards are available for the children (or the young at heart!).
Camp Fire Programs For Kids and Adults
Every year during the summer season, we host fun evening time Camp Fire Programs at our John Muir National Historic Site. We provide a safe family environment with singing, story time and more. Please contact our Visitor Center to find our more information. Reservation are required for us to staff and prepare accordingly. The season generally runs June through the first of September. Dates may change and events can be cancelled due to weather issues.
