Week of December 21st: Backyard Sustainability – Sold Out

People often feel small and insignificant in this huge world we live but everyone can make a POSITIVE change with the choices they make! Whether you live in a large, medium or small home, condo or apartment, everyone can bring sustainability back to their place of residence. This week we are going to think big, small, and all the ways we can live a more sustainable life. Campers will mālama ‘āina as they tend to gardens, reinvigorate the compost, and find time to relax in the stream. They we will partake in creative crafts, make reusable bags from old shirts, and decorate rain barrels. All week, students will acquire techniques and a better understanding on how to live a more harmonious life with Mother Earth!


Week of December 28th: The Values of Water – Sold Out

Water: the Earth’s most precious resource! With the nickname, “the Blue Planet,” we can find water everywhere: from the salty oceans, in the clouds that fill the sky and underground, trapped in the rocks. Students will dive into an exciting and educational week of learning about water, water conservation, water related crafts, nature games, and outdoor adventures. Soak up the fun as we explore the stream, forest, and meadow while learning about how the plants and animals of these habitats depend on freshwater. Let’s follow the flow on our Makiki Valley watershed trek and visit a secret waterfall and nearby cave. Day in and day out, it’s your chance to get drenched in knowledge and find ways to become better stewards of this limited resource essential for all life!
