The National Park Service’s Historic Jamestowne Junior Ranger programs are designed for three age groups: 5–7, 8–10, and 11 and up. To become a Junior Ranger, young visitors must complete several activities in the Junior Ranger booklet, available at the Visitor Center. The booklet gives young visitors and their families a good introduction to the history of Jamestown and usually takes about two hours to finish. At the successful completion of the program, prospective Junior Rangers will be awarded a badge.
