What is a Junior Ranger?

You can become a Junior Ranger at many of the over 400 National Parks! A Junior Ranger learns about the parks and promises to protect these great places for everyone. At Upper Delaware Scenic and Recreational River, you can become a Junior Ranger by completing the activities in the three Junior Ranger booklets.

The Junior Ranger River Safety booklet is recommended for ages 8-12, but parents are encouraged to work with younger kids on the activities. If you would like a copy of the Junior Ranger River Safety booklet mailed to you send us an email and you can begin your water safety fun! The Junior Ranger River Safety booklet can be completed before visiting the park or the finished booklet can also be mailed to the park and a badge will be sent to you.
