Be A Junior Ranger

Junior Ranger Program

Cabrillo National Monument is a great place for kids and learners of all ages! The Junior Ranger Program is a free, fun way to find out more about the park and earn a badge.

Junior Ranger materials are available by request in the park. The Cabrillo Junior Ranger Program must be completed on site.

  • Please call 619-523-4285 to request Junior Ranger materials when you arrive near the Visitor Center.

  • If you would like to request materials in advance, please email with a specific date and time. Please also call 619-523-4285 when you arrive near the Visitor Center.

  • A park ranger will meet you at a socially-distanced welcome desk in the breezeway near the Visitor Center and the auditorium.

  • The park ranger will explain the program, hand out the junior ranger activity papers and badges, and lead the junior ranger oath. Parents and guardians will be deputized with the authority to give the badge to their kids upon completion of the required junior ranger activities.
