Junior Rangers

Visitors of any age can pick up a Junior Ranger booklet at the Gila Visitor Center or Trailhead Museum. To become a Junior Ranger you must complete at least four specific activities while visiting the park. Upon completion of the program, the new Junior Ranger is awarded a Junior Ranger badge.

If you'd like to get an early start on the booklet before you arrive, it is available to download and print..

Senior Rangers

This program is for those visitors of any age who are looking for a challenge or who have already completed the Junior Ranger program. Complete five activities of your choice. Once complete have a ranger at either the Gila Visitor Center or Trailhead Museum look it over. They will swear you in and give you a Senior Ranger patch for your hard work.
