Ocean Camp is led by our experienced and enthusiastic marine education staff, all of whom are college graduates, over 21 years of age, and First Aid/CPR certified. All water activities are supervised by lifeguard certified staff. Additional adult volunteers provide support for off-site field trips, maintaining an adult to camper ratio of 1:8 or better. All staff and volunteers must be cleared by background checks. Camp staff always have parent contact information, first aid supplies, and a dedicated Ocean Camp cell phone with them.
Need-based financial assistance for Ocean Camp programs may be available for individual campers through our Scholarships for Keiki Programs. For scholarship information, please contact [email protected]
