For Kids

Virtual Junior Ranger Program

Normally you could ask a ranger for the booklet your park's visitor center desk, and they would give you instructions for the book. Because our visitor center is currently closed due to COVID-19 restrictions you can do our virtual junior ranger program, and email it to us when you are finished. Most Junior Rangers complete the booklet in one to two hours, but you may take as much time as needed to finish. Everyone who completes the booklet earns a Junior Ranger Badge for their accomplishment!

National Junior Ranger Program

Children 5 and up can to take part in the Junior Ranger Program. The programs are an exciting way to explore the park with your family.

Want to explore more of your National Parks? Many National Parks offer Junior Ranger programs. Some of them are still available online to download here. For a complete list of all National Parks offering Junior Ranger programs in the park itself, visit Kids in Parks.

Note: The Web Rangers programs are being retired as Adobe phases out its Flash platform in 2020.

Children's Room

Games, coloring activities, and puzzles are available here. The highlight of the room is the please-touch table, where children can explore items they may encounter in the park.
