This spring break, War in the Pacific National Historical Park is proud to host another Junior Ranger Academy. The Junior Ranger Academy is a great opportunity for youths to learn about Guam and our national park, have fun, and share their park experiences with families, friends, and schoolmates.
Junior Rangers will spend the week with park rangers and participate in several exciting activities. Participants will see real World War II artifacts, hear about WWII battles on Guam, spend time outdoors, and participate in a stewardship activity. Junior Rangers become ambassadors of our parks and help fulfill the National Park Service mission of stewardship and preservation.
Junior Ranger Academy is free. Youth in 7thand 8thgrades are eligible to join but you must register in order to participate. To sign up, download a registration packet at:
