For Kids


Junior Ranger programs at the Arch and Old Courthouse

The Junior Ranger program at Gateway Arch National Park is designed to help young visitors learn more about the people, places and events related to St. Louis history and westward expansion during the 1800s. Junior Ranger activities are designed to help connect young visitors to the park's resources and encourage them to become active stewards of their national parks.

Young visitors ages 5-18 can earn a Junior Ranger badge at either the Arch or Old Courthouse.

Junior Ranger activity sheets are available at the information desk at both sites. Complete the selected activities to receive your badge. As the Junior Ranger program is site-based, we do not send out activity sheets or badges through the mail.
