The Kōkua Hawaiʻi Foundation Field Trip Grant Program helps bring students to outdoor sites where they can experience hands-on learning about Hawaiʻi's environment. Kōkua Hawaiʻi Foundation offers financial assistance to Hawaiʻi public schools which otherwise could not afford to participate in environmental field trips. Most field trip locations provide hands-on learning experiences for students grades K-12 and offer educational tours that can be customized to any grade level.

Kualoa Ranch

Kāneʻohe, Oʻahu
Grade PreK - Grade12

Kualoa offers a wide range of educational programs for Hawaiʻi school groups to learn about our natural environment and celebrate our rich island heritage. They pride themselves on providing keiki experiences over the entire Ahupua’a Mauka to Makai spanning 4,000 acres on our Private Nature Reserve. Visit their Kauhale comparing modern vs traditional living quarters in old Hawaii, journey aboard a flat bottom boat over their 800-year-old fishpond where they raise oysters, or explore the Ahupua’a of Hakipuʻu, Kualoa, and Ka’aa’wa and learn of Mo’olelo (stories and history of the area) and canoe plants. Students also can conduct water quality testing in their streams or join their conservation/restoration efforts by working in their lo’i (taro patch) or other worksites on property. Younger children will enjoy learning about different farm animals and pet and feed them, while students grade 4 and above can do Teambuilding where they utilize experiential learning to promote self-discovery, self- confidence, leadership skills, cooperation and teamwork in a positive and fun outdoor environment at our low ropes course.
