Be A Junior Ranger

Become a Lincoln Boyhood Junior Ranger during your visit to the park!

The Junior Ranger Program is designed to help young visitors who are interested in learning about Abraham Lincoln's life in southern Indiana. The program consists of viewing the 15 minute park orientation film, visiting the gravesite of Nancy Hanks Lincoln, the Cabin Site Memorial and the Living Historical Farm. The Junior Ranger program is designed to be completed cooperatively with parents or other adults as a great way for families to discover Lincoln Boyhood National Memorial together.

To become a Junior Ranger, visit the park and complete the Junior Ranger Activity Book.

When you arrive in Lincoln Boyhood National Memorial, stop by the Memorial Visitor Center to get your free Junior Ranger Activity Book. In the guide you will find activities and information about the park and its resources. When you are finished with the activities, show your completed guide to a ranger at the visitor center. You will recite the Junior Ranger Pledge and receive your official Junior Ranger Badge and Certificate. You can take your activity guide home and share your Lincoln Boyhood experience with your friends.
