Be A Junior Ranger

This family-friendly on-site program encourages teamwork and gives participants an opportunity to learn about one of the world's most famous symbols of freedom. The activities are fun and teach children to "Explore, Learn, and Protect" their National Parks, the Statue of Liberty, and why this National Monument is important to preserve.

How Do You Become a Junior Ranger?

It's simple! When arriving to Liberty Island, enter the Statue of Liberty Museum adjacent to the flag pole. Here you can ask helpful rangers for a booklet, pencil, and directions on completing the required activities. All activities can be completed inside the museum, and can be turned into the front desk for a badge before days end. A supplemental guided ranger program is often available for those who desire a formal historical tour.
