The Hawaii Nature Center provides a fun, outdoor, multi-disciplinary educational experience for your child. The day camps are led by the Nature Center’s corps of professional adult educators that combine outdoor exploration with hands-on education. As always, HNC provides a low educator-to-child ratio.
Weekly themes are focused on Hawaii’s natural history, environmental science, and sustainability. Each week SNAP kids are fully engaged in the outdoors through hiking, fishing, bug hunting, nature games and crafts. During the summer, we rotate through four different themes; no two weeks are exactly the same as our curriculum and activities are constantly being updated and revised. SNAP also includes two field trips each week to explore off-site ecosystems, including tide pools and wetlands. Sample SNAP themes:
- Wonderful World of Water
- Ahupua`a, O`opu, and You!
- In Nature’s Footsteps: Adventures in Biomimicry
- Amazing Arthropods
- Art in Nature, Nature in Art
- Happy Habitats
- Malama Honua
