Keiki eight to 13 years old are invited to “Find Your Park” and become junior rangers through Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park’s Keiki o Hawai‘i Nei summer program. The fun-filled, three-day program begins Wednesday, June 24 and ends Friday, June 26. The program is from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day.

Keiki o Hawai‘i Nei is designed to encourage a child’s enthusiasm for discovery by connecting them with the park’s resources and staff, and to inspire their appreciation of what is uniquely Hawaiian by exploring the natural and cultural heritage of Hawai‘i.

Participants must bring and be able to carry their own day pack with water, snacks, lunch, and raingear, and hike up to three miles over uneven terrain at a leisurely pace. To reserve a space, call the Friends of Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park at (808) 985-7373 or email institute@fhvnp.org.The deadline to register is Friday, June 19.

Children will explore Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park, and visit the national parks on the west side of Hawai‘i Island. Transportation is provided, and there is no cost to enroll.

The summer Keiki o Hawai‘i Nei program is co-sponsored by the Hawai‘i Pacific Parks Association and the Friends of Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park.
