What is a Junior Ranger?
A junior ranger attends ranger programs, completes activities in a workbook, and promises to take care of Saratoga. Junior Rangers are typically between the ages of 5 to 13, although people of all ages can participate; it is a great way to learn and have fun in the park!

When you arrive in the park, stop by the visitor center to obtain your booklet. Complete activities in the booklet and attend ranger programs. A park employee or volunteer will check your answers, sign your booklet and give you an official Saratoga Junior Ranger badge. Can't visit us in person?
