Adventure in Paradise

Hawaiʻi 4-H Military Partnership is excited to announce its “4-H Wounded Warrior Camp: Adventure in Paradise” will once again be offered this summer.

The week of fun in the sun, recreation and respite is specifically tailored for the dependent keiki of wounded, injured, ill or fallen soldiers. At YMCA Camp Erdman on the North Shore of Oahu. The adventure will include high ropes courses, mindfulness activities, swimming, yoga, hiking, Hawaiiana-based environmental activities, crafts, and recreational camp games.

Youths will have the rare opportunity to use Hawaiian studies and practices to learn about sustainability, through a focus on ʻāina a me kai (land and sea), as well as mālama ponoʻī (self-care).

Twenty spots are available for youths going into grades 6th to 10th in Fall 2022. Thanks to a generous grant from the US Army and the 4-H Military Partnership covering airfare and camp fees, the cost for keiki is only $30.

“Thank you for your support of our project,” says Kate Eickstead. “If you or prospective families have any questions please visit Wounded Warrior Camp or contact me!”
