How does it work?

When you visit Vicksburg National Military Park, ask for the Junior Ranger Booklet at the information desk in the Visitor Center. Complete activities in the booklet during your visit based on age of the Junior Ranger. These activities include completing answers to questions about exhibits at the Visitor Center and Cairo Museum, questions about monuments, and designing your own battle flag.

Once the book is completed, return it to the Visitor Center to pick up your official Junior Ranger Badge.
