What is a Junior Ranger?

A Junior Ranger is:
…a Caretaker
…an Adventurer
…a Learner
…a Seeker
…a Discoverer
A Junior Ranger... could be YOU!

We invite you to become a First State National Historical Park Junior Ranger. You will join a growing group of young people who are interested in the world around them and involved in their nation's history.


How do I become a Junior Ranger?

All ages can start the Junior Ranger journey. Junior Ranger Activity Booklets are free at the park sites, just ask your tour guide for a copy. Please note that we do not currently have a First State National Historical Park specific Junior Ranger Booklet but kids who participate in a program will earn a First State Junior Badge.

Becoming a Junior ranger is easy! Simply visit one of the many sites that make up First State National Historical Park and ask your tour guide for a Junior Ranger Book. When you've completed all the requirements, give the booklet back to your tour guide- if you do not have time to finish the book you can always take it home and mail it back to the park.


Kids:

Being a Junior Ranger means you understand how special national parks are and how it is up to all of us to help protect them in the future. We hope you will have fun learning about this park and the many others that also have Junior Ranger programs.
