Junior Ranger Program

The park offers free Junior Ranger programs for children ages 5 and up. Youth will complete activities as they visit the house, explore the museum, and visit with park staff. After finishing the program requirements, the child is sworn in as a Junior Ranger and receives a special badge. Check in with the staff at the information desk to get a booklet and get started on this fun program!

There is also a Junior Ranger patch available for sale at the information desk.


Throw Back Thursday: Summer History Programs for Children

The park is offering free hands-on history programs for children and their families on Thursday mornings June 1- August 3. Programs are offered from 10 am - 11:30 am.

Children will be engaged in a variety of activities related to the people who lived at White Haven in the 19th century or to the National Park Service. Program topics will vary each week. Activities are most appropriate for ages 6 and up, but younger siblings will certainly find something fun to do as well.
