The Junior Ranger program has been in use throughout the National Park System for more than two decades. Most of the 401 National Park Service units across America offer the program, and Minuteman Missile National Historic Site is one of them. Each park has its own Junior Ranger programs, with a variety of activities in each.
Minuteman Missile Junior Rangers
For nearly three decades Minuteman Missile field personnel protected and defended our nation. Now you can learn about the duties they performed and why the Cold War was a defining event in American History. Minuteman Missile National Historic Site's Junior Ranger Program is a great way for children, as well as their parents, to experience the park. By completing several different activities, the whole family will learn about:
- Why Minuteman Missile's were so important during the Cold War and still are today
- How the Air Force personnel lived and worked at Minuteman sites
- The mission of the National Park Service and our ranger staff
