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. Art, animation, drama, and journalism courses combine fun and creativity to cultivate students' imaginations. Pending health and safety guidelines, field trips will take students beyond the classroom where student scientists will build research techniques at labs and natural sites or aspiring journalists can meet working professionals. Join us in fun-filled learning!

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 where students immerse themselves in activities designed for curious young minds.


Welcome to Summer Programs 2022!

Covid Policy changes coming soon
As stated in our Covid policy, we are following UH's guidelines.  You may have seen the recent announcement that UH will be eliminating their vaccination requirement to be on campus.  Summer Programs will be following their lead and also dropping our vaccination requirement.  A formal announcement and more details will be coming soon.  Feel free to contact us if you have any questions or concerns.

Breakfast and Lunch now available!
We are pleased to announce the launch of our breakfast and lunch service provided through Lanakila Kitchens. Thanks to subsidies offered by the USDA's Summer Food Service Program, we can offer healthy meals to our students at reduced prices.  Purchase a meal plan with your registration or contact us to add it on!
