Junior Ranger Activity Books

The park has a free Junior Ranger program, with activity booklets for ages 5-7, 8-10, and 11+.

Junior Ranger candidates must visit the site to see the park film and tour the historic home and museum, in addition to completing several activities from their booklet to earn their very own Junior Ranger badge and certificate.

The site offers a Junior Ranger patch, available for $2.95, to those children completing the Junior Ranger activities at the site. Patches are avilable in the Jefferson National Parks Association gift shop.

If you would like more information on the Junior Ranger activities, please contact us.
