Camp ‘Imi-Possible is back for Fall break (October 7-11th) and proudly presents “Where the Sky Meets the Sea”—a week-long program that takes campers on an oceanic navigation adventure.

To prepare for their camp voyage, campers will build their wa‘a, make traditional cordage using indigenous fibers, and learn what preparations are needed when packing the wa‘a for the journey. Students will spend time in our planetarium to learn the night time skies above Hawai‘i and how to navigate using the stars and the horizon.

In addition to using a large interactive star compass, students will learn various tools used in oceanic navigation, including the stars, the moon, ocean currents, wind patterns, weather, floatsoms, and animal life.

Filled with hands-on activities, games, and STEM-based art projects, this camp is sure to engage.

Let’s discover how far we can go!
