Pea Ridge National Military Park is fun for kids, too! They can enjoy and explore nature, learn about history, and even become a Junior Ranger.
For scouts and scout leaders, Pea Ridge offers opportunities for service projects and merit badges. Please check out our Boy Scouts of America page for information.
The park occasionally hosts community outreach and park maintenance events. Kids can volunteer for these events, but may require parental supervision depending on the age. Please contact the park at (479) 451-8122 for more information.
We also offer a Kids' Passport in our Eastern National bookstore which contains information and activities related to your national parks.
