When I was a kid, I was sent to the summer fun program that most of the kids growing up on the plantation went to. It was fun ... learning how to swim in the olympic-size pool, bowling in the 'semi-automatic' 6-lane alley, playing dodge ball on the hardwood floor of the gym, baking corn bread and doing arts and crafts (mostly using kukui nuts and coconut shells). Wow - just thinking about those good old days reminds me of how fun it really was.
Today, there are many options for kids, including summer school. What's offered by Pacific Whale Foundation on Maui seems to be a combination of both summer school and summer fun.
If you plan to be on Maui ... or live on Maui, your elementary and middle-school kids (or grandkids) are sure to enjoy participating in the programs that are offered.
