This October, War in the Pacific National Historical Park is proud to host another Junior Ranger Academy. The Junior Ranger Academy provides a great opportunity for youths to learn about our national parks, have fun, and share their park experiences with families, friends, and schoolmates.

Participants can spend their weekends with park rangers.  They will see real World War II artifacts, learn about Guam’s history and culture, snorkel in a marine preserve, and participate in restoring a WWII site.

The Junior Ranger Academy is free. Youth in 7th and 8th grades are eligible to join but you must register in order to participate. To sign up, download a registration packet at:
http://www.nps.gov/wapa/forkids/junior-ranger-academy.htm or pick up a packet at the T. Stell Newman Visitor Center in Sumay.  The last day to submit registration forms and the required $20 refundable deposit is September 26.  Space is limited, so don’t delay.

Junior Ranger programs will run every Saturday during the month of October.
Registered participants who complete at least four of the many programs will become Junior Rangers and receive an official Junior Ranger badge and certificate.

For more information, including a schedule of Junior Ranger Academy programs, visit the T. Stell Newman Visitor Center in front of the Naval Base Guam main gate (open daily from 9 am – 4:30 pm) or email jracademy@pacifichistoricparks.org.
