Sound the trumpets, beat the drums, and shine up those brogans because our summer Junior Ranger Days are BACK.
Junior Ranger Days programs are designed to expose area youth to Vicksburg National Military Park and the National Park Service through fun and educational activities. These activities aim to spark a child’s interest in park history and natural and cultural resources, while showing them the value of having a National Park in their own backyard.
Programs occur once a week on Thursdays for six weeks.
All program sessions are FREE but space is limited to 20 participants per session. Participants may sign up for all sessions or may pick and choose which sessions they would like to attend.
All Junior Rangers must be between the ages of 8 and 12. Registration is required. The application deadline is midnight on Sunday, June 5th. Participants will be selected via a lottery system. Chosen participants will be notified of their selection by Friday, June 9th.
