Ocean Camp

Campers can join us for a day, a week, or a whole summer on a journey of discovery, learning and adventure, exploring topics from whales to conservation and more.

About Ocean Camp

The Ocean Camp program is open to children entering – or currently enrolled in – grades 1-5.  Ocean Camp provides a fun way for children to learn about the oceans and Maui’s natural environment.  Each week has an ocean-related theme.  Each day includes fun games and activities, hands-on science lessons, field trips, and arts and crafts.

Reservation Information

Weekly or daily enrollment is available. If you are registering for more than one day, we recommend purchasing an Ocean Camp Pass. After you complete your pass purchase, you will receive a code that will allow you to register for individual days of camp.
