Junior Ranger

Junior Ranger

Explore your national park, learn about wildlife, and spend time with park rangers! Junior Ranger programs give children an opportunity to experience their park hands-on.

Your child can become a Junior Ranger by participating in scheduled programs or completing Junior Ranger activities on their own. Learn more about how to become a Junior Ranger >

Advanced registration is required. Register by calling 330-657-2796 ext. 100. A parent or guardian is required to attend with participating children at no charge (unless otherwise noted). Space is limited for each program. Location is given upon registration.

Children who attend two Junior Ranger programs will earn a Junior Ranger badge. Children who attend four programs during the year will earn a Junior Ranger patch. Badge and patch designs change from year to year — children can collect them all.

Jr. Ranger Family Programs

Children can participate in Junior Ranger Family programs in Cuyahoga Valley National Park all year. Summer 2017 programs are coming soon, with scheduled programs designed for children ages 7-12 (Junior Ranger) and ages 4-6 (Junior Ranger Junior)

Jr. Ranger Group Programs

Group programs are offered during the summer for organizations serving children ages 4-12. Programs are two hours long and are presented by park rangers and Conservancy staff. Summer 2017 programs are coming soon! To schedule your group, call 330-657-2796 ext 100  or email amcgrady@forcvnp.org.
