Outrigger Fiji has revamped its teen?s program in a bid to create activities which teach an appreciation for the Fijian environment and culture, for its guests aged 12-15 years old.

Resort Activities manager Kini Sarai said the Outrigger has always had a designated program for teenagers however there was a need to revamp the activities to make them more appealing to their young guests.

?We have incorporated programs and activities that will be interesting to our teenage guests. We?ve exposed them to lovo preparations and making spears for fishing, jungle treks and visits to local schools and villages?, Mr. Sarai said.

Outrigger on the Lagoon ? Fiji General Manager Peter Hopgood said the resort believes in offering its guests an unforgettable Fijian holiday for the whole family to enjoy.

?Keeping our guests entertained is a big part of what we do here at Outrigger Fiji and our revamped teens program is our way of ensuring that our young guests are learning about Fiji?s flora and fauna, as well as our amazing culture whilst also having fun on their holiday?, Mr. Hopgood stated.

?Our jungle treks and lovo making is a hit with our young guests who can now go back home and tell their mates that they learnt how to cook Fijian food in an earth oven?, he said.
