Ocean Camp - Spring Sessions
Welcome to Pacific Whale Foundation's spring session of Ocean Camp! We look forward to engaging your child in a fun and enriching program that will expand their knowledge about the ocean—all while having fun and making new friends. Our camp program takes place Monday through Friday, March 16th through 20th.
You may register now by calling us at 808-249-8811 ext. 1, between 6 am and 9 pm HST daily.
About Ocean Camp
Our camp is for children in grades 1 through 5 and is led by the marine education team from Pacific Whale Foundation. Ocean Camp is located at Pacific Whale Foundation’s air-conditioned Discovery Center in Ma’alaea and is staffed by friendly, enthusiastic and energetic professionals with years of teaching and camp experience.
Each day is designed to help children make direct connections with the wildlife and habitats they are learning about. Our camp program includes many field trips and adventures, including surfing and windsurfing lessons, tidepool explorations, snorkel cruises to Molokini, trips to Maui Ocean Center and beach visits. The program also offers games, art, hands-on science exploration and more. Children learn about marine science and are encouraged to become lifelong stewards of the marine environment.
