Overview Ocean Girl Project 5-day Camps + Workshops
What we do
Ocean Girl Project provides workshops and 5-day ocean camps which introduce girls to fun outdoor activities where we explore creative ways to connect to nature while supporting each other. We provide positive activities that help build self-confidence, self-esteem, and give each girl a personal sense of accomplishment. We provide scholarships and many opportunities to local girls whose families need financial aid. We do community service such as collect school clothing for homeless girls and boys, beach cleanups, and art projects each year.
How we do it
We play, we surf, swim and laugh. We go into the ocean each day at camp, before and after we do creative exploratory activities which may include yoga, beach cleanups, reusable art, local food and simple gardening ideas, vision boards, create organic body products, we love music and take field trips to learn more about our island. We have wonderful and generous sponsors and we do fundraisers to raise money for scholarships.
Our trained and experienced staff and volunteers are safe, patient teachers, supportive guides and strong positive community role models. Ocean Girl Project has been providing workshops and camps to local girls in our community since 2008.
What about Surfing
Surfing is a fun and cool activity, and provides positive ways to overcome challenges and tap into personal strength. All ocean activities take hard work to begin, it’s what makes them so worth it.
We share our passionate love of the ocean and a sustainable island environment while connecting girls to new friends, positive role models, healthy outdoor activities and opportunities that may benefit them now and all through their life.
Workshops and camps take place primarily on the south shore of Oahu but we travel during the year to other communities. We pick fun and safe locations for ocean learning.
Girls 10-12 years old.
All participants at camp must have basic swimming abilities. Your child must be able to tread water and swim short distances without becoming overwhelmed or exhausted. The swim requirements do not apply to the One Girl one day workshops on land. If your child is afraid of the ocean and or surfing, you can email Colleen for tips and suggestions.
