Where is Pono Outdoor Program located?
We meet for daily field trips and excursions in various locations. Our program has recently moved entirely outdoors, and is very nomadic. We travel all over the island of Maui, teaching about different ecological zones, foraging, medicinal plants, and natural sources of water locations.
How much does it cost?
We have a strong desire to meet the needs of the public and therefore, our fees are a fraction of the cost of many other similar programs. We therefore ask for more from our families with volunteering, carpooling, chaperoning, etc. A breakdown of tuition cost can be found on the Program page.
What do we need to bring?
Nutritious lunches with snacks, as well as water bottles are a must daily, Close-toed shoes are also a must, as well as dressing in layers, as we spend most of our days outdoors. However, due to our nomadic educational program the clothing is different on the daily basis.
What is your policy on medical implications of Covid protocols?
At Pono Outdoor Program, we feel it's the right of the parents to choose what is best for their keiki. We do not ask for medical information of students, as that is the personal information of the families.
