From learning traditional hula dancing to mastering the art of crafting beautiful leis, our cultural activities will help you gain a deeper appreciation for the island's traditions and create lasting memories. Join us as we explore the vibrant world of traditional Hawaiian cultural immersion!
Traditional Hula Dancing
Hula, the graceful and expressive dance form of Hawaii, is a cherished art that reflects the history, mythology, and emotions of the Hawaiian people. At Aloha Beach Camp Hawaii, campers will have the opportunity to learn hula from skilled camp counselors and activity specialists who will guide them through the fundamental movements and gestures of hula dancing. Immerse yourself in the enchanting rhythms of traditional Hawaiian music, sway your hips to the melodic tunes, and connect with the spirit of aloha through the art of hula!
Lei Making Activities
Making Leis, the iconic flower garlands synonymous with Hawaii, hold a special place in Hawaiian culture. They symbolize love, hospitality, and celebration. Campers will learn the art of lei making, allowing them to create their own beautiful and fragrant garlands using traditional Hawaiian techniques. Discover the significance of different flowers and foliage used in leis, and let your creativity blossom as you weave together vibrant colors and scents. It's a hands-on experience that connects you to the cultural roots of the islands.
Cultural Workshops and Demonstrations
In addition to hula dancing, lei making, and historical exploration, Aloha Beach Camp offers a variety of cultural workshops and demonstrations. From traditional Hawaiian arts and crafts to musical performances and cooking demonstrations, campers will have the chance to engage in hands-on activities that showcase the diversity and vibrancy of Hawaiian culture. Learn the art of coconut husking, try your hand at ukulele playing, or discover the secrets of traditional Hawaiian cuisine. These interactive experiences provide a deeper appreciation for the customs and traditions of the islands. You will be able to do all this on site at camp, and also on field trips to such places at the Polynesian Cultural Center.
