Kids can have a great time in their national parks!

Complete the Junior Ranger activity booklet and recieve an official Junior Ranger badge and certificate. Kids will get sworn in by a ranger as a new steward of the national parks!

Fourth graders can get their very own parks pass by visiting the Every Kid Outdoors website. The passes are FREE and cover admission and entrance fees to public lands, including Fort McHenry.

Collect Passport stamps at the visitor center for a souvenir from your visit!

Attend a ranger program or assist in changing the morning or evening flag.

In the summer the Fort McHenry Guard provides cannon and musket firing demonstrations, fife and drum performances, and period games and demonstrations.

Every year Fort McHenry hosts the War of 1812 Fife and Drum Camp. Kids ages 11 and up can register for the day camp and learn how to play the fife or drum.
