Be A Junior Ranger

Ninety Six National Historic Site welcomes children (of all ages) to visit the park and learn about America's past. The Junior Ranger Program is available upon request in the Park's Visitor Center, which is open everyday (except New Years' Day, Thanksgiving, & Christmas Day) 9am to 5pm. There is no fee for the program. The program is designed for individual and family participation. The program consists of a booklet with 3 sections (Visitor Center, Historic Trail, & "More Fun"). There are a total of 10 activities; the number of activities that must be completed are based on the participant's age. Once completed, return to the Visitor Center to be "sworn-in" as a Junior Ranger and receive a Jr. Ranger badge and certificate.

The Junior Ranger Pledge:
I am proud to be a Junior Ranger. I will explore our world, and the nature it has to offer. Wherever I go, I will keep discovering and learning about the environment. I will respect wildlife and their homes. I will continue to learn about other people and their lives. I will protect other national park areas for generations of other Junior Rangers to come.
