Discover the history of Gettysburg National Military Park through the Junior Ranger Program, a project for our young visitors to have fun while they learn about the importance and and history that is Gettysburg. This is an opportunity for children to not only see the relics of the conflict, visit this great battlefield and the site of President Lincoln's "Gettysburg Address", and hear the stories of this national park, but apply what they discover to make their visit one they will not soon forget!
How does it work?
Through the Junior Ranger program, children and their families are engaged together in fun, hands-on, self-directed learning activities that enhance their park experience, create fond, long-lasting memories and promote new appreciation for our national treasures. The National Park Service created the Junior Ranger program in the early 1960’s to connect children and their families with the natural and cultural history found in our national parks. The program serves nearly 330,000 children annually in 286 parks across the country.
