You can become a Valley Forge Virtual Junior Ranger even if you can't visit the park!

This program features six online activities that you can do with your computer, a pencil, a piece of paper, and about thirty minutes. You'll learn about the natural world, the story of the encampment of the Contintental Army, and the many different people that contribute to the history Valley Forge.

Once you've completed the activities, you'll take the Junior Ranger pledge and receive your official Virtual Junior Ranger badge.
