Be A Junior Ranger

Covers of four Junior Ranger Books: Perry's Victory, Great Lakes, NPS Centennial, and Eclipse

Junior Ranger

Did you know you can become an official Junior Ranger at Perry's Victory? Children ages 5-12 can complete the Junior Ranger workbook available in the Visitor's Center to earn their badge. Junior Ranger activities include visiting park highlights, interacting with rangers, and using creativity to solve historic riddles. After completing the workbook Junior Rangers are sworn in by a Park Ranger.

Junior Ranger Books

Perry Victory and International Peace Memorial

This one is about the history connected with the War of 1812 and the Battle of Lake Erie. It is divided into two age groups: ages 6-9 and 10-12. (A little secret if you are younger or older we will give you a book.)

Great Lakes

Second Junior Ranger book is the Great Lakes. This one is unique in that you can started at Perry's Victory and take it to one of the other 14 National Park Service sites on the Great Lakes to complete. Or you can start it at one of the other 14 and finish with us.


Often times we have other Junior Ranger Books on hand. These are often limited such as the Centennial of the NPS Junior Ranger and Eclipse Junior Ranger.



If you cannot make it to Perry's Victory & International Peace Memorial to complete the Junior Ranger Program visit the WebRangers web site, the National Park Service's on-line Junior Ranger program for kids of all ages. Your adventure begins with a membership card and a chance to create your own on-line ranger station. Once you log-in, you can post stories or photos, scan the best park webcams, and complete activities to earn rewards. When you have completed all the activities, you will earn the WebRangers patch.
