River RangersPress release from Navesink Maritime Heritage Asociation

For the twelfth consecutive season, the Navesink Maritime Heritage Association has announced that its River Rangers canoeing program for children ages 10 to 14 is open and taking registrations for summer 2016.

River Rangers explore our local rivers in colorful wooden canoes over the course of five days. It’s an activity that helps young people learn boating and teamwork skills, gain new friends, and obtain an understanding of the local maritime environment and wildlife. Participants will also enjoy paddling, swimming, and learning something of the on-water and under-water life while having fun.

Each weekly program runs from Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. The program will run for five one-week sessions: July 11-15, July 18-22, August 1-5, August  8-12, and August 15-19. The cost per week is $225 for each child, which includes equipment (canoe, life vest, paddle) and expert supervision.

Parents who would like to register their children for the program can go here, click here for more information, or email any further questions to
