San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park Junior Ranger Program

While in the park, younger visitors can pick up a free Junior Ranger Program activity booklet at three contact stations: the Visitor Center, Maritime Museum, or the Ticket Booth on Hyde Street Pier.

There is an activity booklet for kids ages 5-8 and one for kids ages 9-12. It's a fun way for kids, and those big kids along with them, to learn about the park. The booklets are also available in Spanish (ages 5-8 and 9-12).

Once the activities are completed, find a park ranger who will review the booklet with the new Junior Ranger and present them with a Junior Ranger badge.

If you would like to download the Junior Ranger Activity Booklet before visiting San Francisco Maritime NHP, the booklets for ages 5-8 and ages 9-12 in English are available for download in the links below.
