Being a Scout Ranger allows you to go out and explore your national parks. Whether you are visiting a natural park like the Grand Canyon or a historical park like George Rogers Clark National Historical Park, we hope you will learn something about yourself and these sites. Being a scout ranger allows you to:

-Learn about the mission of the National Park Service

-Help protect America's cultural and national treasures

-Explore the over 400 national parks in the national system

You can also earn a certificate or patch for becoming a scout ranger!

To earn a certificate, scouts must:

-Participate for five hours in a volunteer/educational project at George Rogers Clark NHP or any other national park unit.

-Help out at the annual Spirit of Vincennes Rendezvous, Muster on the Wabash, or other local events.

Volunteer projects for scouts at George Rogers Clark include:

-Participating in the annual 4th of July cleanup with local boy scout troops

-Participate in the park's annual Summer Junior Ranger Series and help with the activities during at least one of the summer events

-Other projects are available, simply come and talk to the ranger staff!

Education Programs include:

-Attend a living history program at the park, including, the park's annual George Rogers Clark march in February and/or a long rifle demonstration at the park

-The ranger staff can also come to you and do a program for your scouts as well!

To earn the patch:

-Scouts must participate for ten hours in an educational/volunteer project. Examples of these projects are listed above.
