Welcome to Project Hawai'i Summer Camp
Please feel free to join our journey as we change the lives of these precious homeless children....
This program is the backbone to the children's overall success. At this camp children learn the social and life skills needed to succeed in school. Beyond what our annual outreach provides, these children are able to learn and practice their skills before returning to school.
This leads to a successful school year and eventually graduation!! We have a 90% success rate of teens leaving our programs with high school diplomas and going on to higher education or training.
Overview of our 3-8 Youth Educational Camp
Project Hawai'i Educational Summer Camp provides homeless and poverty stricken children with exciting and interactive encounters that will open up the world around them. These activities would otherwise be outside of their financial reach. All campers will have hands on experiences that will enhance their appreciation for, and understanding of their environment, community and Hawaiian culture. We support a well rounded educational program that gives these children the hope they deserve! We fill their hearts and minds with a positive outlook of their own self-worth!
Furthermore, our camp is designed to allow the children to escape their everyday troubles in a safe and serene environment. We provide them with basic life skills to help them keep clean and healthy. By introducing them to various arts, music, cultural learning and other activities we keep their minds active and growing. In addition, our field trips are designed to teach them the proper life and social skills to succeed in school. These keiki WILL gain self-esteem beyond comparison and be ready to face their world once they return "home".
Our camp is offered free of charge to children between the ages of 3-8. We have different levels of support for 3-5 and 6-8 year olds
Project Hawai'i Summer Camp truly provides these precious children with the hope of a better tomorrow, pride in being prepared for school and the
social skills to make new friendships. (more details below)
Jr. Leader Program 10-12 year olds
Project Hawai’i developed a jr. leader program in 2015 in part to the success we were having with our keiki development from the beginning. Children were aging out of our programs and getting lost in the important development years. Those that demonstrate the will to succeed will be chosen to return as jr. leaders.
Our program helps develop the skills of becoming leaders of self. Learning to be responsible and awareness of their actions in their own lives. The jr. leaders are paired with a teen mentor and assigned to work hands on with the younger children at camp. They will help guide the little one's through activities and help where needed. This has been so successful during our 5 year pilot program that it became a regular program. We are grateful for the start up funding awarded by HPE Drive for Success Award.
For 2021, The Shane Victorino Foundation provided a jump start grant to open our Jr. Leader program to Mau'i.
Teen Mentoring Program
Our award-winning Teen Mentoring Program allows for the little ones that grew up in the program return back as mentors. This program is not open to just any teen! It is a privilege they earn by maintaining good grades, participating in extracurricular activities or sports. Teens will attend "teen weeks" for mentoring and leadership workshops and training. Teens will then attend camp and work with the jr. leaders and help maintain the camps focus and mission. Our program helps these teens break their cycle of which they were born. Our teens graduate from high school and go on to higher education. They will earn the President's Award, completion certificates and community service that can be used towards grants and college awards. This is an earned program!
Keeping Our Keiki Clean and Healthy
Since Project Hawai'i Summer Camp is a dedicated to the healthy growth of our homeless children's bodies and minds during camp, we adhere to a strict healthy meal plan. We provide the children with 3 nutritious meals and 2 healthy snacks daily. We believe the children of today will determine our tomorrow. We instill healthy habits to help them grow and escape poverty. Statistics show that all children will regress over the long summer break, but those living in poverty, lacking proper nutrition and mind stimulation, will regress an entire school year. Project Hawai'i Summer Camp nutrition program plays a huge role in the overall success of their growth.
Our main MEAL volunteer staff is all certified in food safety, meal preparation and child nutrition to assure all our meals are healthy. We also do our best to provide fresh ORGANIC fruits, veggies, meats, eggs, whole grain sprouted breads and more. We do our best to train these children to stay away from foods that will harm their growth, limit their rice intake, and hopefully they will choose the healthier alternatives as they grow older. We are 90% organic & NON GMO!!!
We strive to continue these habits with our hygiene and cleaning products. We have natural organic bathing supplies, use healing oils, and a natural cleaning products when ever possible.
