Combating Climate Change

Climate change has been a hot topic in current environmental news.  But what’s all the fuss about?  How does global warming work and what does that mean for our future?  At Nature Adventure Camp, come and spend the week with us gaining a deeper understanding of climate literacy and discussing positive solutions to this global problem.

Mālama Honua

In 2014, the Hōkūle’a set out on a 3-year voyaging journey to forge relationships and connections with different cultures and people around the world and to navigate toward a more sustainable future. This was a magnificent accomplishment and we are going to continue to spread the message of Malama Honua – Taking Care of the Earth! All week, we will explore nature and learn about how we can do our part to care for our island home and planet. We will talk about how our Hawaiian ancestors created sustainable systems in order to maintain their resources and thrive. We will talk about little things that can make a BIG difference: like gardening, composting, choosing to use non-plastic products, conserving water, and picking up litter. Just as it is critical for us to take care of our precious island home in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, it is equally crucial for us to work together as a global community to take care of our one, life-sustaining planet in the vast sea of space. Join us for an exciting week as we explore nature and take action in protecting Mother Earth!


Week of July 6 – 10, 2020 – SOLD OUT


Nurturing our Natives

Hawai‘i sits in the middle of the Pacific Ocean.  The closest land mass to the island chain is over 2,200 miles away!  And yet. . .thousands of plant and animal species survived the long and difficult journey and eventually made Hawai‘i their home.  Please join us for a week of Nature Adventure Camp as we set out on a quest to learn more about and discover the true treasures of our islands.


Week of July 13 – 17, 2020


Our Blue Planet

Fun fact: our planet is more than 70% water! Water can be found in our salty oceans, in the ground trapped within rocks, and even in the clouds that fill the sky. No wonder Earth is often referred to as, “The Blue Planet!” Campers will be diving into a week of water-related discoveries, crafts, games, and outdoor adventures. We will be soaking up the fun as we explore nature and learn about how plants and animals (including humans!) depend on our planet’s water for survival.
