Weekend Classes

We understand that many people are busy during the week and we certainly do not want anyone to miss out on all of the fun. So, for those who do not have the flexibililty to participate in one of our weekday camps, we also offer weekend camps. These camps are identical to our weekday camps but are instead held on the weekends. Our weekend camps start Saturday and run through Sunday. And, on Saturdays, we throw an after dark luau with live music and a bonfire!
