War in the Pacific National Historical Park and our partners Pacific Historic Parks invite youths to "Find Your Park" on Guam by joining our programs. This summer, we will again host the annual Reef Ranger Summer Camp. This free, dynamic program introduces a fun, safe, and exciting way to explore Guam's coast and learn about marine science at Asan Beach. Participants will learn to become stewards of our island's national park and our environment. Three week-long sessions will be held fromJune 15 to July 3, 2015.

The first session of the Reef Ranger Summer Camp is open to rising 9th and 10thgraders. During this week of leadership training, participants gain a greater awareness of the importance of conservation for our community. They will earn CPR/AED & First Aid certificates, promote water safety, and serve as role models to younger campers during the second or third week session. 

The second and third Reef Ranger Summer Camp sessions are open to rising 5th and 6th graders. Campers will engage in an exciting array of hands-on activities geared towards understanding the benefits of our coral reefs. Daily fun-filled experiences such as puzzles, games, snorkeling, experiments, and field trips will encourage campers to make connections between their everyday actions and impacts on the environment. 

Be a part of this exciting free educational program that encourages youths to tune their senses to the awesome underwater world at their national park!
