Educational Camping Excursion for Students

South Maui Homes and Condos in Wailea

By Mark Harbison

The Maui Huliau Foundation is holding an Eco-Adventure Program for students aged 12-18 from October 4th-6th. This is a great opportunity for students to get a solid educational experience through immersion via a 3 day, 2 night camping excursion. Students will get to explore various locations from Haleakala crater to the Hana shoreline.

The Huliau Eco-Adventure Program is a non-profit organization that strives to teach students about the value of Maui's natural environment and a look at its past, present and future at a crucial, formative time in their lives. The teenage years represent a very important time in our development, as this is when we begin to really question the world around us and begin to establish our own ideas about things. This is why it is so important to have an impact on students of this age range.

The word "huliau" means to recall the past. The principal of this organization is based on the philosophy that to understand our future, we must understand our past. Their aim is to guide students on a historical, environmental and cultural reflection so as to better understand the challenges facing us today, and figure out solutions for a healthy future.

Student immersion in Hawaiian arts and culture has earned it some distinction in the educational system nation-wide. These kinds of programs help teach students in a natural way, beyond dry textbooks, where they can learn through experience instead of only second-hand explanation.

Sustainability is already a pressing concern for preserving our island, and keeping it the way we love it. Our future generations are going to have to get creative about managing our natural resources in the future. Programs like these will help them. 

The program fee for each student is $185, which covers their costs over the three day period, including all meals, transportation, park & guide fees, and a T-shirt. Visit mauihuliaufoundation.org for more information. And if your student can't make it this time around, keep them in mind for the future.
