Land & Sea Camp
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!
Air & Space Camp
At Air and Space Camp you will have opportunities to learn about Earth's atmosphere, about climate, and about astronomy, and about space exploration. You will visit observatories and the centers where astronomers and climate scientists work. You will learn how scientists study concentrations of substances in our atmosphere. You will see alternate energy development in action and gain a better understanding of climate change and be better prepared to participate in the solutions to the challenges you will face. The Big Island of Hawaii is the ideal location for experiencing the air and space sciences. Join us!
