Monocacy National Battlefield will host a "Junior Ranger Weekend" on Saturday, June 8 and Sunday, June 9 from 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m, for kids of all ages. Costumed living history volunteers will present interactive and hands-on programs at various locations throughout the park. A scavenger hunt will lead visitors through the battlefield where they can learn about soldiers being mustered into service, participate in a camp of instruction, see demonstrations of medical practices, and learn about the soldier's life on campaign. Participants will receive the name of a soldier who was active at Monocacy Junction in 1863, and learn what happened to him during the Civil War. Children will receive a Junior Ranger Day Patch or Pin. Adults will receive a Explorer Ranger Pin.
The programs are free to the public and begin at the visitor center located at 5201 Urbana Pike, Frederick, MD 21704.
