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, which can be picked up upon arrival at the Visitor Center. The booklet gives young visitors and their families an introduction to the history of Jamestown and usually takes about two hours to complete.

National Park Service rangers are stationed behind the Visitor Center Wednesday through Sunday from 10:00am to 4:00pm, weather permitting, to distribute Junior Ranger booklets. On Mondays & Tuesdays, the booklets are available at the ticketing desk inside the Visitor Center.
