Do you have what it takes to be a Junior Ranger at Denali National Park and Preserve? Earn your badge by completing fun activities with the help of trusted adults. Join us in person or online to learn all about the wilderness, wildlife, and people of Denali.

Be a Junior Ranger In Person

If you plan to visit the park in person, stop by a visitor center for your free Junior Ranger Activity Book. You will find your book full of Denali science and history to help guide you through activities as you learn and explore. Download our Denali for Families travel guide for more ideas of family-friendly fun.

After you complete the activities, show your book to a ranger at a visitor center. Recite the Junior Ranger Pledge, sign the Junior Ranger Certificate, and earn your official Junior Ranger Badge! Be sure to bring your book back home with you and share your Denali experience with family and friends.
