Marianas Variety: 80 children participate in Maga'lahi Camp (July 13, 2018)

ABOUT 80 children, seven to 15 years old, are participating in the 4-H Marianas Maga’lahi Camp at Saipan Southern High School.

The camp started on June 18 and will continue until July 27.

According to camp coordinator Lorenza Aldan, the six-week camp includes presentations by various agencies, such as the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, Northern Marianas College-Cooperative Research and Extension Education Services, NMC-Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program, Agriculture and Aquaculture, Commonwealth Healthcare Corp., Carolinian Affairs Office, Marianas Music Association, among other entities.

Frances Sablan of Man Antigo was one of the presenters. She and her dancers taught the children how to perform a traditional dance and how to sing in Chamorro.

She said the participants were interested and very much engaged in the cultural activities which also included weaving and bead making.

Aldan said the camp focuses on culture, the environment, science and health. “We want to expose the kids to topics that they may not learn about during the school year,” she added.

“Our goal in this year’s camp is to create an environment that is fun and provides active learning.”
