About the Junior Ranger Program . . .
Children ages 6-12 will have fun learning in the outdoors as they work toward earning a Junior Ranger badge. By following the guidelines in the Junior Ranger Activity Book they will experience nature first-hand, explore Georgia's fascinating history and enjoy outdoor recreational activities. The experience builds as children work their way through three badge levels.

Free Junior Ranger Activity Books are available at all of Georgia's State Parks & Historic Sites - refer to our website to find the site nearest you. There are 63 sites statewide and a site within 50 miles of every Georgia resident. If you are not able to pick up your book in person you can download the book online in pdf format (2.3 MB). The Activity Books are not available by mail.

Junior Rangers can work through the activity requirements on their own or with the help of a parent or other adult. Some parks and historic sites offer Junior Ranger day camps or workshops, usually during summer. Click on "View Upcoming Junior Ranger Events" for a current listing of camps.
