What are Junior Ranger programs in the National Parks?

National Park Junior Rangers

If you're camping in a National Park, your kids can become Junior Rangers and participate in many camping activities for kids. Your children can participate in different activities, share their results with rangers, and receive a Junior Ranger badge or patch when they complete the activities.

There are programs for just about every age group, and most National Parks around the U.S. offer these camping activities for kids. Some of the activities include observing plants and animals, finding stars in the night sky, or arts and crafts activities.

Some of the parks even have online Junior Ranger programs that kids can complete at home and still earn a badge or patch. Before you head out for your camping trip, check the National Park Web Site for information on Junior Ranger programs at your park.
