Hey Kids! Be a Junior Ranger!

Pick up a Junior Ranger book at any ranger program, the Mill, the Visitor Center in Van Buren or from your campground host. Then check out the fun activities, do what you can, and present your book to a ranger to get your handsome Junior Ranger badge!

It's free and it's fun!

If you can't come out to the park, or even if you can, you might want to check out the National Park Service's online Junior Ranger program for lots of fun activities. Click here!
