t’s the perennial topic—what to do with the keiki for the summer. On Hawai‘i Island there are ample programs, activities, and excursions—it’s just a matter of online searches and phone calls to get the scoop. Ke Ola Magazine has saved you the trouble, compiling an A–Z guide to resources and ideas—from day camps and sports programs to experiences like camping and museum hopping—to aid you in the best summer plan to fit your family’s needs, budget and lifestyle. This list isn’t meant to be comprehensive. Apologies to those planning summer excursions for which we werenʻt able to include information. Send your posters and flyers with descriptions to Events@KeOlaMagazine.com for inclusion on our social media sites.
