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 in the park from 11:00am - 3:00pm. The Cabrillo Junior Ranger Program must be completed on site.

  • Junior ranger materials can be requested from a park ranger or volunteer stationed at socially-distanced welcome desk in the breezeway near the Visitor Center
  • If the welcome desk is not staffed when you arrive between 11:00am - 3:00pm, please call 619-523-4285 to request Junior Ranger materials.
  • The park ranger or volunteer 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.
