Course Information

There are no prerequisites for any of our classes.

Grade levels are suggestions to help parents select courses. Course work is designed for students entering the grades listed, but students may register for any class as long as they are able to keep up with the class activities and are socially prepared to be with students who are not their age.

Course Supplies and Equipment

Most course supplies will be provided. Students may be asked to bring some common supplies (such as a pen or paper) or recyclables if you have them.  Supply requests will be available in May.

Students will be provided with any equipment needed for class. Students and their parents may be held responsible for the cost to repair any damage caused intentionally or through negligence.

Breaks and Student Supervision

Students will be supervised from arrival until they check out. We will have staff on campus starting at 7:30 am.  Students under 13 years old who cannot be picked up by 3:45 should enroll in our After-School Program.

Students will have at least one break during each class. They may bring a snack to eat during break. Students will not be allowed to share snacks for safety.

Full-day students will have a daily supervised lunch break. They must either purchase a meal plan or bring a home lunch. During Core Programs, lunch will be from 11:45 am to 12:30 pm.  During Summer Adventures, the lunch break time will vary depending on the daily schedule.

Meal Service Program

Students are eligible for reduced price breakfast and lunch service through Lanakila Kitchens and the USDA’s Summer Food Service Program. Meal plans include a daily meal for each day of their registration. See the listings on our course catalog for pricing and details. Full day students who do not purchase a Lunch Meal Plan must bring lunch daily. Students will not be allowed off-campus to purchase lunch.

Daily Breakfast (Core Programs only)
Includes milk, fruit, and a whole grain item, such as cereal or a bagel. There will be no Daily Breakfast service during Summer Adventures.

Daily Hot Lunch (Core Programs and Summer Adventures)
Includes a hot entrée, such as chili or shoyu chicken, along with a starch, vegetable, fruit, and milk. Juice and a selection of snacks will be available for Meal Plan students only.

Food Allergies: Allergen free meals can be provided with submission of a doctor’s note. Lanakila Kitchens is not able to accommodate severe nut allergies as all food is prepared in a facility that handles nuts.


Covid Requirements and Safety

All registered families must adhere to the Summer Programs COVID-19 safety guidelines. Our policies follow the University of Hawaiʻi requirements and the recommendations from the CDC. The safely of our families is our greatest priority.

  • We recommend students stay home when ill, whether with COVID-19 or not, to recover and prevent community spread. Students who display signs of illness will be isolated in our health room and parents will be called for pick-up.
  • Students who test positive for COVID must follow UH Manoa’s current requirements.
  • Face masks are accepted but not required unless stated by UH Manoa’s requirements.
  • Covid vaccinations for those eligible are encouraged, but not required.
  • There are no requirements for students arriving/returning from out-of-state.  We encourage students to take a COVID-19 test before returning to campus, but it is not required.
  • By enrolling in Summer Programs, you grant us authority to take your child's temperature at our discretion.




Summer is almost here!  Registration is now closed, you may still purchase add-on items like meal plans and t-shirts. We look forward to sharing the summer with you!
