    Overview

    Learn about the events of the natural world and how they affect plants, animals, and humans. Located in Hawaii, you will experience active volcanoes, coral reefs, recent lava flows and black and green sand beaches as your classroom.

    At Land and Sea Camp campers engage with volcanoes (geology), the ocean (oceanography), the forest (biology, zoology), and the environment. You will visit Kilauea, the world's most active (and easily studied) volcano. You will see footprints in hardened ash that are over 200 years old. You will see one of the world's greatest mineral collections and visit beaches made entirely of minerals. You will learn not just about the events that take place in the natural world but experience first-hand how they affect plants, animals, and humans. The Big Island of Hawaii is the world's greatest laboratory for Earth Science. Join us!
