ʻŌlino Summer is designed to give kamaliʻi a fun and safe space to spend their summer building pilina and exploring pathways they love or have always wanted to try. Each age group will have the opportunity to explore one of two pathways designed to learn new skills and have new experiences while being rooted in Hawaiian culture and values. Please see the descriptions below for the available pathway experiences being offered for each age group. 

Ages 11-13

Performing Arts Pathway 

The Performing Arts Pathway is designed for kamaliʻi ages 11 through 13 to share their stories through Theatre and Dance. Kamaliʻi and kumu will work collaboratively over the 3-week program to learn from each other and create an informal performance piece that reflects our collective. Kamali’i who are new or experienced in performing arts are encouraged to join. All are welcome!  

Sports Pathway 

The Sports Pathway is designed for kamaliʻi ages 11 through 13 to explore ocean sports and activities. Kamaliʻi will participate in various ocean and cultural activities like canoe and stand-up paddling, all led by our partners Nā Kama Kai. We hope that this experience will help to deepen the kamaliʻi connection to the ocean, community, and our environment.  

Ages 14-17 

Music Pathway 

The Music Pathway focuses on various elements of traditional and contemporary Hawaiian music. This program will take ’ōpio on a journey, exploring music of the past, present, and future of Hawai’i. Students will also have hands-on experience, developing their creative artistry through songwriting, music production, and basic music theory.

Creative Media Pathway 

The Creative Media Pathway is designed to give kamali’i experience in video production as a mode of storytelling. A collaboration with ’Ōlelo TV kamali’i will work in teams to produce their own digital media project based on a theme. During the experience kamali’i will dive into many elements of video production covering everything from script to screen.

This program is free and all are welcome to apply, with preference given to Native Hawaiian kamali’i who reside in the Honolulu area.

Application deadline: May 27th, 2022.
