Book arrival flights to arrive before 12:00pm. Book departure flights any time after 6:30pm. Please contact us with your travel information so we will have a Winners’ Camp representative at the airport to greet you. Proceed to your baggage claim area to be greeted.
It’s fine to travel with cell phones and money, although both will not be needed at camp.
Some Neighbor Island families choose to fly in for Parent Day and rent a car. It takes about 45 minutes to drive from the airport to the camp.
PARENT DAY SEMINAR
On the final day of Camp, a parenting seminar is led by the Camp director and key facilitators. This program gives parents an overview of their teen’s experience, as well as specific skills designed to support teens in retaining the maximum value from what they have learned. The program’s final hours feature a parent and teen reunion and a presentation of communication and negotiation skills to support the ‘ohana (family) environment. If you are a Neighbor Island or Mainland family or cannot attend Parent Day due to work restrictions, we will have one of our leaders hanai your teen for this portion of the program.
Please make every possible attempt to find child care for siblings on Parent Day: younger siblings tend to get restless. It’s best to give all of your focus and attention to your teen who has just experienced a very intense and transformational time.
MEDICATIONS AND WELLNESS
All registration forms include an area to list medications needed and special instructions. If you wish to further communicate about medical needs, please contact us. Winners’ Camp has a wellness person on site at all times. The wellness person is responsible for distributing prescription medications and providing medication reminders to campers who request it. On the first day of camp, you may bring your teen’s medications in a see-through plastic ziploc bag. Please write your teen’s name clearly on the outside of the bag (marker is fine). Enclose instructions in the bag. We will collect medications on Registration Day when you drop off your teen.
