About Ocean Camp

Ocean Camp provides a fun way for children (keiki) to learn about the oceans and Maui’s natural environment while building new skills and making new friends. Each week centers around an ocean-related theme, and every day includes hands-on science lessons, fun games and activities, creative arts and crafts, and nature based field trips.

Reservation Information

Weekly or daily enrollment is available for children entering or currently in grades 1 – 5. If you are registering for more than one day, we recommend purchasing an Ocean Camp Pass. After you complete your pass purchase, you will receive a code to register for individual days of camp.
