Bryce Canyon for Kids
Bryce Canyon does not offer a classroom program like Zion Park's explorer program, but they do give out a Junior Ranger booklet at the Bryce Canyon Visitor Center. Kids completing the projects in the booklet will receive an official certificate and badge. Bryce Canyon also offers a just for kids program from June to August. Parents can sign kids up at the Bryce Canyon Visitors Center, then meet with a ranger later in the day. Your children will spend then next hour playing games and having fun, while learning about the Bryce Canyon environment. Unlike the Zion Jr. Explorer program, you must stay with your kids. Kiosks are around the park which you can use to help your children learn more about Bryce. They display geology, history and other education things.
