CANCELLATION POLICY  If offered, we reserve the right to cancel the program and/or Extended Care if we do not have minimum enrollment. In this rare case, we will contact you as soon as possible and refund the program and/or Extended Care cost. If you cancel within seven days of the first day of each camp, your enrollment is non-refundable for any reason.

THIRD PARTY REGISTRATION POLICY  Hawai’i Nature Center will no longer accept third party registrations or registrations on behalf of other friends or family–the registering child’s parent or guardian must be the individual to complete and submit all registration information. If we determine that a third party has completed your child’s registration, your registration will be cancelled and we will refund your tuition. Please note, a $50 cancellation fee per child per week and administrative processing fees will be charged.

COVID-19 SAFETY  Keeping children, families and our staff safe is our highest priority.  Health and safety measures are in place to keep participants safe. Modifications include smaller group size to accommodate social distancing. We’ve added six feet of social distancing in our seating arrangements. Mask must be worn inside and on field trip buses. More frequent and easier-to-monitor hand washing is required. Frequent disinfecting of surfaces and high traffic areas are performed. Since our programs are outdoors, we have lots of room to spread out and enjoy the fresh air while exploring nature.
