Aloha Campers and Shuttlers of Campers,

The Wai Koa Plantation and Stone Dam are currently CLOSED due to storm damage. There are many cars and trucks traveling through the area due to a sinkhole on Kahiliholo road. There are also concerns about water quality from storm damage to septic systems.
Due to this closure we are changing locations of our Wai Koa Plantation Deep Nature Camp’s dates to Pila’a coastal area in Kilauea.

Pila’a coastal area is about 3 miles east of Waikoa Plantion off of the highway.
It is off of N. Waiakalua rd, which is on the makai ocean side of the highway. Turn on N. Waiakalua Rd and follow to the end. At the end take the dirt road on the left and head towards the ocean. The trail head is at the look out for the beach.

I know that the kids will enjoy this location and it is one that we use for our weekly homeschool programs during the school year. It has a protected reef and many great resources!
