Ocean Camp Winter Session to Take Place on December 26 and 27, and December 30 to January 3
In addition to the gifts under the tree, give your child the gift of fun, adventure and discovery by enrolling them in Pacific Whale Foundation's Ocean Camp Winter Session.
The popular camp, led by professional marine educators from Pacific Whale Foundation, will take place on December 26 and December 27, as well as from December 30 to January 3, at Pacific Whale Foundation's Discovery Center in Ma'alaea.
The camp is open to children in grades K - 5. Parents can enroll their keiki for individual or multiple days. The camp hours are from 8:00 am - 4:00 pm.
The approximately 18 different species of whales and dolphins that are found in Hawaii will be the focus of the camp program on December 26 and 27, as campers learn about "Large Leaping Mammals of Hawai'i." Field trips during these two days include an excursion to Maui Ocean Center and a visit to Ulua Beach in Wailea.
During the following week, December 30 to January 3, the camp theme is "Protecting Wild Whales." Campers will learn about the habitat of whales and visit Whaler's Village Museum to learn about humpback whales both past and present. They'll learn how whales are adapted to ocean life during a camp surf lesson, a whalewatch cruise and other field trips and other activities.
The daily camp program can be viewed at http://www.pacificwhale.org/content/ocean-camp-schedule
The camp staff includes friendly, enthusiastic and energetic professionals with years of teaching and camp experience. There is a 1:10 teacher to camper ratio.
The camp registration fee is $72 per day. Pacific Whale Foundation Members pay $55 per day.
Last minute registration (24 hours prior or day-of camp) is $77 per day. Pacific Whale Foundation Members pay $61 per day.
To register for camp and to get answers to any questions, please call Pacific Whale Foundation at (808) 249-8811 ext. 1. The camp is open daily, from 6 am to 9 pm. You may also download and print out a Camp Registration Form at http://www.pacificwhale.org/sites/pacificwhale.org/files/winter%20camp%2...
Parents interested in a "No Child Left Indoors Scholarship" should contact email@example.com for an application.
An optional lunch is available for $6.50 per day. The lunch is catered by Porto, the flame-fired artisan pizza restaurant in Ma'alaea and Ola Catering, both of which are owned by Pacific Whale Foundation. The lunch options include handmade child-sized pizza, prepared with all-natural ingredients; sandwiches made with organic peanut butter and natural fruit jelly on whole wheat bread; ham sandwiches (with ham baked at Porto) on whole wheat bread; and locally made, natural, all-beef hot dogs on rolls. Each lunch includes an organic trail mix, organic carrot sticks, an organic orange and 100% natural fruit juice.
