Tremendously popular throughout the 400+ units of the National Park System, Junior Ranger programs are a great way to get kids, and their families, interested and involved in their national parks.
Our new Junior Ranger program is designed for children, ages 5-13, who can earn a Junior Ranger badge and certificate by completing activities contained within the Junior Ranger booklet. 16 activities take young visitors through exhibits and self-guided walks and tours throughout the park. Once kids complete the appropriate activities for their age group, rangers and park volunteers will issue their badge and certificate.Pick up your Junior Ranger Booklet at the Visitor Contact Station - 7712 Main Street, Middletown, Virginia 22645, and earn your Junior Ranger Badge today!
