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. 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.

Please note that due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the Junior Ranger program is temporarily suspended. This is for the health and safety of all as staff continue to work remotely where possible and maintain social distancing on site. However, children can still complete a booklet at home. To request that a booklet be emailed to you please follow the link above. We look forward to resuming this program when conditions permit.
