We introduce the homeless keiki to many aspects of life to help them learn and grow. Project Hawai'i Summer Camp truly provides these precious children with the hope of a better tomorrow, pride in being prepared for school, and the social skills to make new friendships. We're able to stay true to our mission through the support and involvement of the community. 

Project Hawaii's Summer Camp program is run 100% by volunteers and solely supported by public donations. Our dedicated volunteers work throughout the year to assure the overall success of the camp. Be part of our dynamic volunteer team to help take on challenges throughout the year to assure our keiki gain the self-esteem needed to grow and escape the cycle of poverty within their own lives. You can help make a difference by volunteering for just one aspect of our summer camp program.

   SHARE YOUR TALENT WORKSHOPS:   

We invite the public to share their talents with our homeless keiki on O'ahu. Our goal is to help open the camper's minds to the wonders around them while teaching them proper behavior required to learn and succeed in school. Campers will learn to follow directions, wait their turn, stand in line, listen, work together, and so much more. We only have a week to get them ready to succeed for their upcoming year at school.

Each workshop / activity is 3 hours long. You can choose either the morning or afternoon time slot whichever is more convenient for you.  Workshops on O'ahu will be hosted in Wai'anae.

Back to School

Once our keiki have had their life skills developed and proud of their accomplishments, we will send them back to school ready to succeed. This is the key to helping them feel confident on their first day of school. It is a sad statistic that most homeless children start dropping out of school in the 4th grade. Most of that is due to lack of being prepared and keeping up with what is required of them. 

Project Hawai'i, Inc fully prepares them for success. WE COUNT ON YOU to make the difference!
