Junior Ranger Program
You can become a Junior Ranger when you visit Antietam National Battlefield. Junior Rangers learn about the National Parks they visit. At each park they help the park rangers and park volunteers.
In order to prepare for your visit, you can download and print the Junior Ranger booklets (below) in advance from this webpage. When you visit the battlefield you can complete the activities in the booklet and present them to a park ranger or a park volunteer at the visitor center. They will award you a certificate and a Junior Ranger badge.
