For Kids


Junior Ranger Programs

The National Park Service Junior Ranger program is an activity-based program offering young visitors the opportunity to become Junior Rangers, taking an oath to protect parks, continue to learn about parks, and share their Junior Ranger story with friends and family.

Children interested in the Junior Ranger program at Glen Echo Park have several activity booklets they can complete to earn a Junior Ranger badge and certificate. This free program is designeed for children ages 3-12 but people of all ages are welcome to participate.

Glen Echo Park has three Junior Ranger options, each available at the ranger station:

  • Junior Ranger activity booklet, recommended for ages 7-12
  • Lil' Junior Ranger booklet - this activity booklet is for ages 3-6 and contains age-appropriate activities, allowing even our youngest visitors the opportunity to earn a Glen Echo Park Junior Ranger badge.
  • Civil Rights Junior Ranger booklet - this special edition activity booklet explores the Civil Rights story of Glen Echo Park. Completion of the activities within this booklet will earn kids a Glen Echo Park Civil Rights Junior Ranger badge.
