earn a patch for ranging across the island

The National Park Service's Jamestown Junior Ranger program is designed for visitors between the ages of 6 and 12. To become a Junior Ranger, young visitors must complete several activities in the Junior Ranger booklet. The booklets can be purchased from the museum gift shop at the National Park Service Visitor Center. It usually takes about two hours to complete the program and gives young visitors and their parents a good background into the history of Jamestown. At the successful completion of the booklet each prospective Junior Ranger will have the certificate at the end of the booklet signed and be awarded a patch designating them a Junior Ranger of Jamestown.

"This park is unlike most and was enjoyed by everyone, from 9 year old daughter to 81 year old father. The weather was bitter cold yet we still spent nearly four hours taking in all the indoor exhibits. The tour was extremely interesting. Our children enjoyed the earning their Jr. Ranger patch. We would like to go back to see all the outdoor exhibits and the archeological digs in progress during the summer."
