Be A Junior Ranger

Saratoga National Historical Park is pleased to offer our Junior Ranger program!

These are just a few of the fun activities included in the program activity book:

  • Solve a word puzzle to help get a message to the American Army.
  • Navigate a maze to help a lonely soldier make his way safely back to camp.
  • Spy on British forces and get important information.
  • Go on a "virtual scavenger hunt."
  • Create a cool sign for other visitors your age.

Ask for your copy of the Junior Ranger activity book and Junior Ranger badge when you arrive at the Visitor Center!

Saratoga National Historical Park's Junior Ranger program is made possible by Friends of the Saratoga Battlefield (FOSB).

Before Saratoga National Historical Park was a National Park Service site, it was a New York State historical preserve (1927-1938). The park's first visitor center was a reproduced blockhouse that reportedly contained boards from a local barn that existed during the Battles of Saratoga.
