RED BANK: RIVER RANGERS ARE GO FOR 2015

Swimming RvrpaddleThe borough-based Navesink Maritime Heritage Association (NMHA) has announced that its celebrated River Rangers canoeing program for children ages 10-14 is now open to registrations for Summer 2015 programs in July and August.

Each five-day program runs Mondays through Fridays, 8:30 am to 1:30 pm, beginning with the week of July 6-10 —  and continuing with sessions on July 13-17, July 20-24, July 27-31, August 3-7, and August 10-14.

Now in its 11th year, the River Rangers program has given more than 1,000 young people an opportunity to paddle brightly decorated wooden canoes from Rumson to Red Bank on the Navesink and Swimming Rivers, as well as Shadow Lake. While having fun, these young River Rangers learn boating and teamwork skills, gain new friends, and obtain an understanding of the local maritime environment and wildlife.

Parents, guardians, and grandparents should go here to register — and for more information, contact Michael Humphreys at myhumphreys@gmail.com or (908)902-1150.
