Mammoth Cave National Park

Just For Kids

Are you between 6 and 13? Do you want to learn all you can about Mammoth Cave National Park? Here are some great kid's activities at Mammoth Cave!

Take the Trog Tour: A fun trip for kids between 8 and 12 years old. You get to go into parts of the cave no one else (no parents, anyway) gets to see. Put on a hard hat and headlamp and learn how the cave was formed, what lives in it, who has been there before you and how you can help protect it. Offered during the summer season.

Become a Junior Ranger: Young people 6 to 13 years old are eligible to become Junior Rangers. Purchase the Junior Ranger packet at the book sales area in the visitor center and start rangering! Follow a ranger on guided activities and record your own discoveries in the booklet to become a Junior Ranger.

Introduction to Caving Tour: Bring mom and dad on this trip good for anyone 10 and older, poking into dark, twisting tunnels and learning why people go caving, how they do it safely and what they find when they're there.
