Become A Junior Ranger

Explore. Learn. Protect.

The Junior Ranger motto is recited by children around the country; each taking an oath of their own to protect parks, continue to learn about parks, and share their own ranger story with friends and family.

Here's how you can become a Junior Ranger at Salem Maritime:

  1. Download your Junior Ranger booklet here or if available, pick one up at our park store, Waite & Peirce (193 Derby St.).
  2. Complete the Junior Ranger activities as you explore on-site or from home.
  3. In the course of your journey at the park, find a Park Ranger to lead you through the Junior Ranger pledge.
  4. Return to Waite & Peirce to receive your Junior Ranger badge or make your badge by copying the image here to print out! You can also send your completed booklet to the park for a ranger to check your work and mail you an official Junior Ranger badge.
