What to bring: Students really won’t need more than a swimsuit and a few camping basics! A fully packing list will be provided after registration. Please email us if you have questions.

Meals: Meals will be a combination of campfire cooking options provided by instructors, and eating at favorite local spots with ono grinds (local Hawaiian slang for really good food! 🙂 when traveling around the island to surf spots and beach hangouts, etc. A good budget for personal pocket money for restaurants and local supermarket runs, is likely around $200 to stay on the safe side (you can definitely eat cheaper if you choose to).
