Junior Ranger Program

Learning about history is fun! Keweenaw NHP has two options to participate in the Junior Ranger program, based on age. The Junior Ranger activity book is for ages 7 and up; the Explorer Ranger activity book is for ages 4-6. Anyone of any age can become a Junior Ranger, as long as you're willing to have a little fun along the way!

You can pick up a Junior Ranger book in-person from the Calumet Visitor Center. Hours vary based on the season, call ahead or check the Operating Hours & Seasons page in advance of your visit.

Books can be returned in-person to the Visitor Center to earn the official Keweenaw Junior Ranger badge. You can also mail or email photos of the book to the park and we will send you the badge.

If you are not in the area, you can download a book below. Call (906) 337-3168 for more information.
