KAMP Hawaii ended the summer by reaching 4,852 participants at 39 program sites on Oahu. Mayor Mufi Hannemann made a visit to Kamehameha Field and gave a very inspiring speech to the kids. This past summer the objective was to educate our keiki’s about the harmful effects of drugs. We provided a drug free program by utilizing our hands on approach technique to drive home the importance of drugs and making the right choices.
In the end over 3,000 participants entered KAMP Hawaii “Pride and Victory” Healthy Lifestyle Contest. Judging by these results, the kids did really pay attention during our activities. Each entry was carefully read and reviewed by Mr. KALO and his Committee. We had 18 entries selected and they were given prizes for their efforts. The entries that were selected were: Andres (Petrie Park), Julie (Kamiloiki Park), Anisa and Kailyn (Manoa Valley), Amy (Makiki Park), Ethen (Sheridan Park), Justin (Kalihi Valley Park), Kawehi (Fern Park), Haley (Halawa Park), Jonathon (Makakilo Park), Virginia Lynn (Mililani Park), Zoey and Dane (Crestview Park), Ashley and Edward (Hauula Park), Jared (Ben Parker Park), Nick (Waimanalo Park) and Ian (Ahuimanu Park). Mahalo to all participants. Everyone is a winner.
