Frontier Quest

Calling All Recruits!

Fort Scott National Historic Site is inviting you on a quest through history and the chance to earn your own Junior Ranger badge!

Travel to 10 of the sites along the Kansas-Missouri border shown on the map below. At each one, a notification will appear on your device; open it to receive a digital passport stamp, then post an image of your adventure on Instagram. Caption your photo with a sentence describing the site's significance to local history and hashtag it with #FrontierQuestFOSC and #FortScottNPS.

Once you have collected 10 stamps, head to Fort Scott National Historic Site and verify your journey with the Ranger on duty to receive your badge.
