Camp Homelani is changing the game this year…
The Salvation Army Camp Homelani is adding STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics) to our summer camp educational activities so keiki learn how to innovate and build with a purpose! STEAM encourages innovation, creativity and the sharing of ideas.
Just last week, campers addressed world issues such as poverty, violence, pollution and hunger. They worked in teams of five or six to invent a machine or contraption with the intention of solving a problem in their community and later presented it to their peers.
We learned that pollution is not good for our health. So we created a machine that would help pick up trash and save the earth. We’re just like scientists! – The ‘Let’s Stop Pollution Girls’ Team
Camp Homelani incorporates STEAM activities daily in addition to recreational activities such as swimming, sports, hula, or art. Each year, approximately 450 keiki from across Hawaii are invited to experience summer camp on the North Shore of O’ahu.
