Pacific Whale Foundation Ocean Camp Spring Session
"The Ocean in Motion" is the theme of the upcoming spring session of Pacific Whale Foundation Ocean Camp, a day camp program for children in grades K through 5. The camp will take place from Monday, March 12 through Friday, March 16 from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm. Parents may enroll their children in single or multiple days.
Campers will explore the role of water movement on our planet, as they themselves enjoy an array of activities. The weeklong camp program includes a whalewatch cruise, surf lesson, science labs, beach investigations, art projects, a visit to Maui Ocean Center and more.
The Pacific Whale Foundation Ocean Camp is based at Pacific Whale Foundation’s air-conditioned Discovery Center in Ma’alaea. Transportation to field trips is provided in air-conditioned vans.
Pacific Whale Foundation Ocean Camp is staffed with friendly, enthusiastic and energetic professionals with years of teaching and camp experience. In addition to holding graduate or undergraduate degrees, the counselors are also CPR, first aid and lifeguard certified and hold Marine Naturalist certifications from Pacific Whale Foundation. The camp is based on Pacific Whale Foundation's 32 years of experience in delivering quality marine education programs for kids.
"We're especially proud of our 1:10 counselor to camper ratio, ensuring that each camper benefits from our staff's enthusiastic and friendly attention," says Karen Molina, Youth Education Director at Pacific Whale Foundation. "We really want kids to be learning the entire time they're at camp -- and having fun, too."
Camp enrollment forms can be found at www.mauioceancamp.org or at www.pacificwhale.org. The camp fee is $72 per day; $61 per day for kama'aina and $55 per day for Pacific Whale Foundation Members. Register late (24 hours prior or day of) and the fee is $77 per day, $66 per day for kama'aina and $61 per day for Pacific Whale Foundation Members.
