HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - St. Andrew's Schools announces its first ever spring break camp from March 20-31. Open to students in grades K-8, this one of a kind camp will further St. Andrew's Schools' mission of elevating the knowledge of and appreciation for the unique culture of Hawai`i while encouraging students to think beyond their books and dive into its interactive spring break program.
"We're thrilled to be starting our new spring break camp, which is designed to provide a fun and nurturing experience by using the world of science, nature and the community that surrounds us as our learning environment," said Ruth Fletcher, Head of School at St. Andrew's Schools. "This two-week program focuses on providing unique, hands-on activities – ultimately leaving students with a fun, yet educational experience, that will help them develop into creative thinkers, confident learners and compassionate leaders."
The camp will be held at the school's K-12 campus conveniently located in downtown Honolulu. From 7:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., students will engage in activities that combines the teachings of nature, Hawaiian culture, and science resulting in an enriching and fun week. Parents who register before March 1st will receive an early bird discount of 10 percent.
Children can look forward to exciting themes for each day of the camp including, 'Game Show Mania,' which features activities from Double Dare to Slime Time Live, and 'Moana Magic,' which educates students about our cultural heritage through the legend of Maui and other Hawaiian heroes.
"This camp provides a fantastic alternative to a traditional spring break, as students will be able to participate in a developed program that fosters creativity and empowers them to apply what they learn in class to their community and environment," said Vicki Lepick, St. Andrew's teacher and camp director. "As an educator, it gives me the opportunity to help students connect ideas with real life experiences and solutions with the hope that in return, I will become a better teacher."
