Cane River Creole NHP is one of the many parks where children can earn their Junior Ranger badge and Civil War to Civil Rights trading cards.
To earn a Cane River Creole Junior Ranger badge, kids must complete the park's Junior Ranger Activity Book. Many important topics, including agriculture, architecture, and various regional cultures are introduced in the activity book. A free book can be picked up at the Oakland Plantation Store at the start of your visit. You may also contact the park and request that a book be mailed to you. Younger Junior Rangers can check out our coloring pages. Complete the activities and send us your book. We will send it back with a Junior Ranger badge.
To earn Cane River Creole Civil War to Civil Rights trading cards, kids may complete the Junior Ranger Book, participate in a ranger-led tour or answer a question about their visit to the park. Kids can also earn a card by visiting different locations within the park.
Every summer, Cane River Creole National Historical Park is proud to host summer camps for area students. These day camps help to expose children to Cane River Creole National Historical Park and the National Park Service through educational and fun activities. All camps are free, but interested families must register in advance.
