Aloha, parents! We understand that sending your child to a sleepaway camp, especially one as far away as Hawaii, can be a big decision. You want to ensure your child is safe, happy, and engaged, but the distance can sometimes be a cause for concern. That's why we've come up with a unique solution that we believe you'll love: Why not turn your child's summer camp experience into a Hawaiian vacation for you as well?
Close Proximity, Peace of Mind
Our camp is located on the beautiful North Shore of Oahu, a paradise known for its world-class surfing, stunning beaches, and laid-back lifestyle. By choosing to vacation in Hawaii while your child attends our overnight camp, you'll be geographically close, providing a sense of security and peace of mind. This can be especially comforting if this is your child's first time at a sleepaway camp. You'll know that, if needed, you're just a short drive away.
While your child enjoys fun Hawaiian summer camp activities like stand-up paddle-boarding, you can be enjoying a relaxing Hawaiian vacation.
A Vacation for Parents
While your child is having the time of their lives at camp, you can enjoy a well-deserved vacation. The North Shore is a perfect base for exploring the island. And if you need any recommendations on where to stay, we're more than happy to offer suggestions.
Hawaii's food scene is a melting pot of flavors, with influences from Polynesian, Asian, and American cuisine. From traditional Hawaiian fare at Haleiwa Joe’s on the North Shore to innovative fusion dishes at The Pig & The Lady in Honolulu, there's a culinary adventure waiting for you on the islands.
Immerse yourself in Hawaiian culture by attending a luau, learning to hula dance, or visiting the historic sites of Pearl Harbor and Iolani Palace. Hawaii's rich history and vibrant culture offer endless opportunities for exploration and learning.
Hawaii's natural beauty is breathtaking and diverse. Hike the trails of the stunning Na Pali Coast, snorkel in the crystal-clear waters of Hanauma Bay, or simply relax on the pristine sands of Waimea Bay on the North Shore.
Reconnecting with Your Child
At the end of the camp session, you'll have the opportunity to reconnect with your child and share your experiences. You can extend your stay for a few days and let your child show you around their "new" island home, sharing the places and activities they've discovered during their camp experience.
Turning your child's summer camp experience into a Hawaiian vacation for you is a win-win situation. You'll have the peace of mind of being close to your child, the relaxation and enjoyment of a Hawaiian vacation, and the unique opportunity to explore and appreciate the beauty and culture of the islands. So why not give it a try? We can't wait to welcome you and your child to our 'ohana (family) this summer!
