Academic tutoring is available for students before and after practice.
Kamali’i Summer Enrichment Program
Please register your keiki for the Kamali’i Program on March 18, 2016. Space is limited.
The Summer Enrichment Program begins in June and is open to approximately 70 youth ages 10-13. The program uses a variety of teaching methods such as classroom instruction, hand-on activities, group activities, games, song, and hula. Participants keep a journal of their lessons which they keep at the conclusion of the summer. Participants very much look forward to the six huaka‘i (excursions) Hawaiian Kamali‘i plans every summer. Before the huaka‘i, the keiki learn appropriate cultural protocols such as oli (chant) and ho‘okupu (ceremonial offering) which are unique for each area. The Kamali’i Program is funded by grants from the County of Maui, Saltchuk Resources, Office of Hawaiian Affiars, private foundations, and by Hawaiian Canoe Club fundraising activities. The program is free, but off-island excursions cost $40-$100 each.
Kamalii Start date TBD
