Week of March 15th: The Ever-Giving Earth – This program is SOLD OUT | Please email us at  nac@hawaiinaturecenter.org to be placed on a wait-list!

Our one and only Earth gives us so much! Earth provides water, food, energy, and so much more, not to mention fun activities and inspiration! This week let us think about all that the Earth gives. Campers will be immersed in the beauty around us as we hike the trails and streams of Makiki Valley. We will think about natural resources, sustainability, and biomimicry while we explore the mystic mesic forest. Plants will provide us with craft materials (e.g. natural dye), we will study some of their medicinal uses, and taste delights from our garden. The whole week we will think about how WE can take less as we give back to our wonderful planet during 2021.

Week of March 22: Wilderness Survival! – This program is SOLD OUT | Please email us at nac@hawaiinaturecenter.org to be placed on a wait-list!

This week students will be honing in on the fundamental skills and knowledge of outdoor survival! With teamwork to decision making, the theme focuses on hands-on learning and scenario planning to make our keiki feel more confident in Nature. We will discuss the four basic necessities of survival and where and how to create them with minimal materials. Topics of discussions will cover: preparing and packing responsibly for outdoor exploration, ancient Hawaiian architecture, and identifying and using natural resources. From exploring caves with kukui nut torches, to building natural shelters to protect students from the elements, your child will walk out of this week and be ready to lead the family on a new adventure!  (Please note: we are closed on Prince Kūhiō Day – Friday, March 26th – no program, HNC closed).
