Grades K-5

Create wonderful memories of summer 2021!

Summer at HPA invites rising kindergarteners through fifth-graders to explore the gifts of Hawaiʻi Island. From mauka (mountain-side) to makai (ocean-side), students participate in the creative arts, science, swimming lessons, games, gardening, hiking along our majestic hills and mountains, and discovering the wonders of the sea. Our many activities promote go-green concepts and the importance of working collaboratively to sustain our natural environment.
