Your children will love a trip to Olympic National Park just as much as you do—if you plan it right. Here are a few kid-specific activities designed just for them!
Junior Ranger Program for Children Ages 5-12
Kids love waving their badge of honor proving they’re one of Olympic’s finest, albeit youngest, rangers. Pay the small additional fee at a visitor center to obtain the activity booklet, and enjoy checking things off the list as your family makes its way through the park. Designed for kids between 5 and 12 years old, activities required to get the patch include attending a ranger talk and going on a hike. A winter activity booklet is specially designed for the colder months.
Ranger-Led Activities for Children
Youngsters will love the series of children-specific ranger programs offered throughout the summer at Olympic. The offerings change from year to year, so check the Olympic National Park website to check up on the current menu. Past programs have included family bonfires and ranger presentations geared toward kids.
