Junior Ranger Program

A family visit to Appomattox Court House National Historic Park provides kids with a realistic view of an American past unlike anything they are likely to experience in any amusement park. From our museum's fascinating collection of artifacts to the rolling hills and wide lanes, this park is truly kid-friendly. Explore the Junior Ranger program for kids 6-13, and the Civil War trading cards for kids of all ages.

Summer Camp

Join park staff each summer for a two-day summer camp in partnership with the American Civil War Museum. See the full Summer Camp page for details.
