About Us

CRDG Summer Programs at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa continues its 50 year commitment to summer education, exploration, and adventure through its internationally recognized program for students entering grades 1–12.

In a variety of courses designed for curious young minds, students are immersed in hands-on STEAM activities, like building and programming robots, designing rollercoasters from recyclables, or competing to build the best catapult to explore the exciting side of learning. Art, animation, drama, and journalism courses combine fun and creativity to cultivate students’ imaginations. Field trips will take students beyond the classroom where student scientists will build research techniques at labs and natural sites or aspiring artists can meet working professionals. Inquiry-based instruction and hands-on learning in the classroom, laboratory, field, studio, and theatre are the cornerstones of our program. Classes are led by qualified teachers and teacher-assistants to ensure a safe learning environment. Join us in fun-filled learning!



We are very grateful for all the families who joined us for an exciting and educational summer.  Planning is underway for Summer 2024.  We have a few changes coming, including a name change.  We will release more information in the next few months.  Stay tuned!
