Camp Menehune

Small 'kine' explorers

Children ages 4 and 5 years

Give the little ones a break from their standard Daycare! Our Menehune Day Camp is an immersive, hands-on environment where your child's curiosity will fuel his or her learning experience. Modeled after Camp ʻImi Loa, but designed for preschool children! Participants will be led on educational animal tours, visit select animal exhibits for an exclusive experience, and create animal themed crafts appropriate for their age group. To get discounted prices on our Education programs, sign up to become a member today!

Camp tickets will be available for purchase on Zerve in Mid-October.
