Junior Ranger Program

The park offers free Junior Ranger programs for children ages 5 and up. Youth will complete activities as they visit the house, explore the museum, and visit with park staff. After finishing the program requirements, the child is sworn in as a Junior Ranger and receives a special badge. Check in with the staff at the information desk to get a booklet and get started on this fun program!

There is also a Junior Ranger patch available for sale at the information desk.
