A Summer Full of Wonder
At Kama‘aina Kids, children will have the opportunity to build friendships, learn new skills, and create memories that will last a lifetime! Our program this year, A Summer Full of Wonder, is built around hands-on, enriching activities focusing on the world around us. Each week will include a variety of experiences—both on-site and off-site—which are planned by our staff and aimed at strengthening each child’s Social Emotional Learning through hands-on and collaborative engagements.
Each week is themed to provide a basis for introducing new concepts to our students, in a safe and cooperative environment. It includes activities such as Arts & Crafts, Collaborative Games, Simple Science, Music, Team-Building Exercises, Physical Fitness, *Experiential Excursions, and more!!
Kama‘aina Kids School Age programs are a safe and exciting adventure for children who have completed grades K-6. Our core curriculum focuses on developing critical 21st century skills—such as communication, collaboration, creativity, and critical thinking—through fun, unique and hands-on activities.

Out of an abundance of caution, our Summer Programs are structured to abide by the recommendations for childcare facilities to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, set forth by the CDC, Hawaii’s Department of Health, and Hawaii’s Department of Human Services. These measures include, but are not limited to:
- Facemasks are optional for all program participants, in both indoor and outdoor settings. Please send a facemask with your child if you wish for him or her to wear it throughout the day. There may be excursions or private venues that require participants to wear a facemask. In such cases, families will be notified in advance.
- Program policies for quarantining and isolation, as a result of testing positive for COVID-19, will follow the current DOE, CDC, and HIDOH guidelines.
- Frequent handwashing with soap and water, and for at least 20 seconds at a time.
- Student to staff ratio is 15:1. The group size will be kept to a maximum of 15 students to maintain consistent and proper distancing between groups.
- Summer Day Camp program is designated for children who have completed grades K-6.
This year, activities for A Summer Full of Wonder are delivered through a combination of on-site lessons and weekly excursions. Each week, our programs will follow a designated theme. consist of a combination of guest presenters, virtual experiences, excursions, and hands-on enrichment activities, in a safe and engaging environment. All program activities, including excursions and transportation, are included in the day camp program tuition. Unless otherwise stated, the entire site goes on excursions together. Alternative, on-site care is not available when a site goes on a field trip.
We do our best to remain flexible for our families to ensure your child has a safe and enriching summer. Despite our efforts to make accommodations, there are instances in which a site must be capped at a certain capacity due to limited spacing or staff availability. To secure a space for your child at the location of your choice, we highly urge families to register as soon as possible. Although registrations are still accepted after May 13, 2022, we cannot guarantee that we are able to accept all registrations postmarked or received after this date. If you are waiting on the site calendar to make your weekly selections, then we strongly recommend that you at least register for the week(s) in which program is needed to secure your spot. You may always add-on weeks, once the calendar becomes available.
