Become a Junior Ranger

Arizona State Parks Junior Ranger program logoIf you're between ages 6–12, you can become a Junior Ranger at Tombstone State Historic Park! Pledge to do your part to help preserve the beauty of the park for everyone to enjoy!

On this page, you can download a Junior Ranger activity for this park that you can complete on your own. It's just one of the fun activities you can do to become a Junior Ranger. After you complete it, bring it with you to the park and you're on your way to becoming a Junior Ranger.

When you visit the park ask for a full Junior Ranger booklet at the Visitor Center, Ranger Station or office. Complete the activities during your visit and then bring it to a Park Ranger for review. When a Park Ranger approves your work you'll be asked to take the Junior Ranger Pledge and get sworn in as our newest Junior Ranger. You'll also be given a Junior Ranger Button. We hope to see you at the park!

Activity Sheet Summary

Around the Courthouse: The museum in the courthouse showcases lots of interesting items from life in the 19th century. Keep your eye out for items from the treasure hunt on the Junior Ranger activity sheet as you explore the sheriff’s office, cowboy life in the old west, the mining exhibits, and the authentic displays of law and order from early Tombstone. These items were common in the 1800s, but some seem funny to us now. What things do we use that people might find funny or strange 100 years from now?
