Our foundation is a non-profit organization created 14 years ago to facilitate getting the children of the island of Hawaii sailing. We are looking for assistance with the day sailing activities we have during school breaks in the winter, spring and summer. Our last Winter sailing camp was December 28 -31, 2020. We had a scholarship fundraiser/sail day and movie night (Maiden) on March 14th 2020. Although our 2020 Spring camp was cut short due to Covid 19 we were able to have Spring camp in 2021 and 3 weeks of Keiki (ages 8-12 yrs) in June and 3 weeks of Teen sailing in July 2021. Hawaii schools just returned in August; our next camps will hopefully be 1 weeks in October 2021, 1 week in December with "homeschool" days in November and January, if we have instructors and experienced sailors to assist with this year's camps
Workaways would be staying in the home of directors ( Alicia & Daniel Starsong ), located in Kailua Kona, Hi. Workaways (WA) would be sailing with children age 12-18 in the Winter, Spring and some Summer camps, and children 8-12 in some Summer camps. The day camps are 6 hrs per day with 3-4 hour intro & maintenance day before camp starts. Winter & Spring WA would be able to stay a total of 2-3 weeks in exchange for their assistance with camp & home. Summer WA could be as long as 3 months.
ABILITY to SAIL a dinghy OR operate motorized safety/coach boat (with general sailing knowledge) is required, if WA is a certified instructor additional compensation would be considered. WA could stay additional week in exchange for help around the home. It's host preference that WA have at least a few dinners a week with them.

The island of Hawaii is rich with history and natural wonders. An active volcano, waterfalls, pristine snorkeling. There are many ethnic groups on the island, Hawaiian, Japanese, Filipino, Portuguese and more have cultural events.
Assistance with day sailing camp for children 12-18 years old. Ability to sail a dinghy a must. Ability to drive a 13ft power boat, safe-boating & or sailing instructor certificate helpful. While in the home, keep their area clean, orderly, help with family evening meal. If WA's knowledge or ability to help with sailing camp, work around the house & yard would be a welcome exchange.
Home with 4 adults, and two cats is located 6 miles inland from the shore at an elevation that makes it very comfortable. The home has an ocean view. WA has private entrance to own bedroom, bath and sitting room with toaster oven, coffee maker, blender and ice-chest. Access to full stove in Host's kitchen and limited refrigerator/freezer space.
Beaches, snorkeling, rain forests, volcano, planetarium, luaus, and more! Bus service is limited, but there are 4 working adults in the home to share rides with and a bicycle.
