When catching up with an old lifeguard friend ("Hi Desire'!") she told me about a program her cousin had started called, "Nā Kama Kai." The program focuses on children and their relationship with the ocean - to love, respect, enjoy and protect our beautiful sea. Not only does it incorporate safety education and ocean preservation but the kids get to experience sanding a surfboard, one-on-one instruction on the stand up paddle board and get to ride in a canoe! I was sold. I signed the girls up.
How did it go?
The experience went above and beyond my expectations.
And so much more.
