For Kids

While every visit to the Grand Canyon is special, the National Park Service has designed a Junior Ranger Program to help make the experience extra special for children ages four to 14.

By completing various requirements, your child can get sworn in as a Grand Canyon National Park Junior Ranger. He or she will also receive a certificate and a badge – just like regular park rangers wear.

Junior Ranger Program Details

  • Ravens, Coyotes and Scorpions – Ages 4 to 14
    Pick up a Junior Ranger magazine when you arrive at the park and complete the requirements listed in the magazine for your age group. All three of these programs are available year-round:
             Ravens: Ages 4-7
             Coyotes: Ages 8-10
             Scorpions: Ages 11-14
  • Dynamic Earth Junior Ranger – Ages 9 to 14
    To become a Dynamic Earth Junior Ranger, you must attend the Junior Ranger Dynamic Earth Program. Participants earn a Dynamic Earth certificate and Junior Ranger badge. This program is only offered during the summer months.
  • Discovery Pack Junior Ranger – Ages 9 to 14
    Designed for aspiring naturalists, this program starts with a one and a half hour ranger-led program, where you will check out a "Discovery Pack" for the day. It is complete with binoculars, hand lens, field guides, and other important tools of a real Park Ranger Naturalist. This program is only offered during the summer months.
  • Phantom Rattler Junior Ranger – Ages 4 to 14
    There are two requirements to become a Phantom Rattler Junior Ranger and receive your certificate, badge and patch. First, you have to make it to Phantom Ranch, and second, you must complete the activities in the Junior Ranger booklet. This program is available throughout the year.
