Interested youth complete a series of activities during a park visit, share their answers with a park ranger, and receive an official Junior Ranger patch and Junior Ranger certificate. Junior Rangers are typically between the ages of 5 to 13, although people of all ages can participate!
The NPS Junior Ranger program is an activity based program conducted in almost all parks. Many national parks offer young visitors the opportunity to join the National Park Service "family" as Junior Rangers.
