Junior Ranger Program
The Junior Ranger Program is a fun way to explore the park. Although the program is designed for those ages 5 to 13, everyone is welcome to participate. There are three different booklets depending on the age of the participant. Booklets and assistance with the Junior Ranger program are available at the park Visitor Center. Additionally, during Junior Ranger Day there will be assistance available at Patriot’s Field. Completing the program allows Junior Rangers to earn a pencil, bookmark and patch. Most importantly, the process concludes with taking the Junior Ranger pledge and earning their Moores Creek Junior Ranger badge!
