Fort Frederica Jr. Ranger Badge

Fort Frederica has a place-based junior ranger program that can only be done onsite. While the booklet has a lot of reading and writing and is geared toward children between the ages of 8-13; with help from family members younger children can complete the activities. Please allow at least an hour to complete the outdoor activities. Children will borrow a soldier's haversack that contains equipment needed to complete the program.

Please stop by the visitor's center desk to request a junior ranger booklet, pick up the haversack, and listen to basic instructions on how to begin the adventure. After the activities have been completed, please return the haversack to the visitor center desk. You will be sworn in as an offfical Fort Frederica Junior Ranger and receive a certificate and badge.
