Aloha Special Days!
Are you ready to get away from it all at an island paradise? are you ready to hula and surf your days away? then pack up your grass skirts and Hawaiian shirts for Special Days Ohana! The canteen will transform into a Tiki Hut. We will try and find ways to keep the Volcano Spirit happy. We’ll spend the afternoon playing beach games at our All Camp Laua. Do you have a ukulele? Bring it! We’ll teach you how to play. We can’t wait to see you at Special Days Ohana….because “Ohana means family….and family means no one gets left behind or forgotten”.
