This will be a fun day to reconnect with your colleagues in-person – talk story, play games, and learn new skills. We are looking for folks that may be interested in hosting some in-person sessions such as lei making, yoga, Zumba, a ukulele jam session, or anything that would be perfect for a lawn/beach day. We’re up for anything that sounds like fun to you, so feel free to get creative!

Please Submit Your Kapi‘olani Summer Camp Proposal This Week! 🏕✨

Facilitate your own session or team up with some frolleagues …or both!…and join us for another awesome week-long Kapi‘olani Summer Camp August 1-5!

All University of Hawai‘i staff, faculty and admin are invited to apply to present in one or more of our 2022 Summer Camp session formats:
Summer Camp Sessions.

🐟 Open Swim: This 30-minute presentation is meant to share resources or strategies/processes. While we encourage all formats to include some level of engagement, there is limited time for “hands-on” learning. This session is ideal for sharing lessons learned or strategies you employ in your area that you believe will be helpful to others!

🏕️ Group Excursion: This 70-minute engaging, interactive session format is intended to provide the time to facilitate meaningful conversation and/or application of ideas. This session format is a fantastic opportunity to grapple with interesting issues, problem-solve/brainstorm as a group, and/or introduce a concept/resource while allowing participants to plan for its application in their own context!

⛰️ Activity Hour: These 40-minute health and wellness-focused sessions help engage participants in moving, meditating, and planning for healthy, holistic approaches to work/life balance! 

🏖 Friday Field Day: New this year is our first in-person Summer Camp event at Kaimana Beach Park! We are stoked to gather and build pilina with opportunities to socialize, eat, play games, and hopefully engage in a few hands-on, fun-filled sessions. We’ve got a park permit, endless sunshine, and a beach view, so if there’s something you’d love to see happen on Friday Field Day, throw us a proposal – we’re up for some fun!

Please submit your session proposal(s) here: Kapi‘olani Summer Camp Proposal Submission
You are welcome to propose multiple sessions – please submit each session proposal individually.

The deadline to apply is May 30, 2022 by 11:59pm HST. Presenters will be notified of their acceptance mid-summer.

We hope to hear from you!
