4H Marianas Engages Youth through Summer Camp

Students recently enhanced their leadership skills as part of their participation in the 2019 Camp Maga’lahi hosted by 4-H Marianas in partnership with the Northern Marianas College Cooperative Research Extension and Education Services (CREES) – Family, Community and Youth Development or FCYD program. 

About 78 children learned about swimming, sailing, cultural weaving, banana painting, shoreline restoration, the various conservation areas, the history of the CNMI, and how to identify marine debris. 

“Camp Maga'lahi continues to provide a wonderful experience and opportunity for children to be active and informed during the summer,” said Rhonda Gross, a parent. “My children had an amazing time!” 

“Our camp has always promoted our islands and the CNMI’s rich and diverse history,” said Lorenza Aldan, an extension aide for the FCYD program. “It was a rewarding experience being able to teach our campers this year.”

Camp Maga’lahi was made possible with the help of 500 Sails, the Carolinian Affairs Office, Micronesia Islands Nature Alliance, the Division of Fish and Wildlife, the American Memorial Park Junior Ranger Program, and the Bureau of Environmental and Coastal Quality.
