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. Click here to download the Junior Ranger River Safety booklet and to begin your water safety fun! To learn more about water safety play the water safety game. 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.

Would you like to learn more about the Lenape Indians or Roebling's Delaware Aqueduct? What about the bald eagle soaring overhead or the fish swimming in the river? Try your hand at writing a story like western author Zane Grey did near the banks of the river. The Upper Delaware Junior Ranger Activity booklet will allow you to explore the natural and cultural world in and around the Upper Delaware River. The booklet is recommended for ages 5-12 but is fun for all ages.

Free Junior Ranger booklets are available at the Zane Grey Museum, Park Headquarters, or Park Ranger kiosks located at four river accesses. After a Junior Ranger booklet is completed, a ranger will sign the booklet and give the Junior Ranger a badge or a patch!
