Ridge to Reef Ranger Summer Camp

The Ridge to Reef Rangers program introduces youth to the marine environment in Saipan. Participants learn about coral reef, marine life, the island's natural resources, pollutants and how to protect the land and ocean. Activities include snorkeling, hiking, and community service activities. The program encourages participants to become stewards for the environment.

The next Ridge to Reef Ranger Summer Camp will be held from August 18 to 22, 2014. Space is limited and spots fill up quickly.

The camp is open to youth who are ages 10 and 11 years old. Ridge to Reef Rangers will gain a greater understanding how activity on Saipan’s watershed affects the island’s precious marine resources.

You between the ages of 14 and 16 years old are also eligible to become a Ridge to Reef Mentor. During a two-day training session on August 14 and 15, 2014, teens will have the opportunity to work alongside park rangers, snorkel, engage in discussions about conservation, and gain a greater awareness of the importance of stewardship for our community. From August 18 to 22, Ridge to Reef Mentors will serve as camp leaders for younger campers, promote water safety, and be positive role models.
