Explore history, nature and natural spring water! The Chickasaw National Recreation Area Junior Ranger program is designed for kids of all ages. Through activities, games, and puzzles, kids can have fun as they learn about the park. Required activities include attending a ranger-led program, hiking on a park trail, and completing activity pages that encourage direct experience and discovery learning in diverse park environments. Both children and adults benefit by sharing the fun of becoming a Junior Ranger at Chickasaw National Recreation Area or other parks.
