2014 Hīpu'u Camp Honua
For our introductory camping trip, we are excited to have the use of the Boy Scout service center in Keaʻau. Please check back soon for the updated activity schedule.
Camp Honua: Activity Schedule
In order to effectively teach everyone and provide one-on-one help if needed, we have divided the students into two groups based on grade level. We will host:
Grades 4-8 on August 4-5, Monday and Tuesday, and
Grades 9-12 on August 6-7, Wednesday and Thursday
Camps are scheduled to end at 4pm on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons. As with all Hīpuʻu camps, families are welcome. Please feel free to bring a family tent and participate in the activities.
We have two general goals for the first week of school. Students should leave camp feeling confident that they can use their computers to access their school work, their teachers, their classmates, and online resources. Students will also get experience viewing Hawaiʻi Island communities as not only educational resources, but places where they can actively contribute.
PLEASE try to arrive on time at 8am, Monday & Wednesday mornings! We have so much to do in such little time. It will help us tremendously if you we can all start together. Please eat a good breakfast before you arrive at camp. The school will provide all other meals and healthy snacks. I have attached a list of required camp gear and a link that will allow you to tell us your intent to participate.
