Ocean Camp Spring Session March 18 to 22
Children in grades K through 5 are invited to get an up close and hands-on look at Hawaii's beautiful corals during the spring session of Pacific Whale Foundation Ocean Camp from March 18 to March 22.
The theme of the one-week camp session is “Courageous Corals" and includes learning about Hawaii's fascinating coral species. The camp program is also jam-packed with fun, too. It includes a whalewatch cruise, a surf lesson at Kalama Park, a visit to Maui Ocean Center, tidepool explorations, games, art projects and opportunities to gain a deeper understanding about coral reefs.
Campers can sign up for individual days or the entire Monday through Friday session. Daily camp hours are from 8:00 am - 4:00 pm.The homebase for Ocean Camp is Pacific Whale Foundation’s air-conditioned Discovery Center in Ma’alaea.
Pacific Whale Foundation's Ocean Camp program is developed by certified educators.The staff are friendly, enthusiastic and energetic professionals with years of teaching and marine experience. The program features a 1:10 teacher to camper ratio. All children -- including children who are visiting or vacationing on Maui -- are invited to enroll.
"As we learn more about sustainable living in a changing climate we are becoming even more informed about how temperature changes affect the corals, the very foundation of healthy reef communities," says Karen Molina, Camp Director and Youth Education Manager at Pacific Whale Foundation. "Hawai’i is home to rare coral species and many other endemic coral species that have learned to adapt to our isolated waters. Children learn about these corals and walk away empowered to be young ocean advocates."
Register for the spring session of Ocean Camp by March 1 and the camp fee is $67 per day. (Pacific Whale Foundation Members pay $50 per day.)
The registration after March 1 is $72 per day. (Pacific Whale Foundation Members pay $55 per day.) Last minute registration (24 hours prior or on the day of camp) is $77 per day. (Pacific Whale Foundation Members pay $61 per day.)
