The National Park Service offers wonderful opportunities for children at Gettysburg, including:

Junior Ranger Program

Satellite Broadcast — "Big Deal at Gettysburg: The Value of Historical Places"

Join the Army Program

Offered during the summer interpretive season, this program allows children to “join the army” and learn what Civil War soldiers experienced. The program is free, but pre-registration is necessary. Check the park’s Web site for program times.
