Junior Ranger

Kids as carpenters


Our Junior Ranger book is designed with placed-based activities to be completed during a visit to the park. Upon your arrival at the fort, request a Junior Ranger booklet. After completing the age-appropriate requirements described inside the booklet and reviewing their work with a ranger at the visitor center, participants are awarded an official Bent's Old Fort Junior Ranger badge.

Please note that our Junior Ranger program is a place-based activity that must be completed during a visit. We do not mail out our program booklet, and do not accept mailed in booklets.
