While earning community service hours at this camp, you will be changing the world around you for the better. Teens will earn between 40-200 hours depending on the camp duration they choose. Certiciates of completion will include mentoring, leadership building, program implentation, marking and social service volunteer work. This is a summer camp program designed for the purpose of providing once in a life-time experiences that help teens and children grow with a well rounded outlook.

You will experience a new culture while immersing yourself in our summer camp activities with your camp buddy. You will have the opportunity to choose your own camp buddy or two to actively guide through the camp curriculum filled with games, crafts, reading time, and more. This allows you to bond with your buddy, learn all about their lives, and share your experiences with them.

All our children come from extreme poverty stricken situations. Some are homeless, living in cars and tents; some are just getting back on their feet, moving into a home. None of these children would be able to experience this wonderful summer camp without your sponsorship and support. Your tuition is tax deductible and provides this program to succeed.

You will be come "best buds" for the duration of the summer activities which will allow your buddy to gain self-esteem while you experience life-changing moments. You are making the difference to help change THEIR world for the better.

During this cultural adventure teens will also be introduced to the Hawaiian Culture first hand with surf lessons, hula and ukulele lessons, luau creation, and exploration of the islands best features.
