Winners' Camp is a residential camp in Hawaii for tweens and teens. Each program consists of 60 participants and is supported by a team of 20 specially trained leaders and highly experienced professional facilitators. The leader to participant ratio is 1:3. The program is held at Kamehame Ridge (the ridge between Hawaii Kai and Waimanalo) at the constantly renovated Winners' Camp Foundation Conference Facility on Oahu. Accelerated learning techniques are utilized extensively.
To date, Winners' Camp has 'graduated' over 14,000 participants and over 1,000 leaders. Participants learn to create a positive sense of self-identity through a safe, supportive environment where they break through self-imposed limitations. By regularly setting, meeting, and achieving goals they have a dramatic experience of the exhilaration of "winning." This is winning where the opponent is one's own fears and self-doubts. By conquering challenging outdoor events such as high ropes courses, teenagers learn to recognize their own courage and self-confidence. By repeatedly going beyond what they thought they could do, they learn the joy of reaching their highest potential.
25th Anniversary Campers
Participants are encouraged to develop concern for others through teamwork and team-building. In "taking a chance" on others - learning to trust - they discover the rich rewards of close and reliable friendships. Instruction in conflict-resolution and advanced communication techniques provide them with realistic ways to reduce conflict and improve cooperation in their lives. In discovering that conflict is counter-productive, they acquire more useful, workable methods of dealing with problems and challenges.
Participants learn specific techniques to improve skills, such as accelerated note-taking, memory training, visualization and creative thinking techniques, and self-management methods. However, the major force in improving grades and academic ability is the development of positive and constructive attitudes about their own capabilities. This Ohana Hawaii Teenager Leadership Training strives to give participants a taste of the knowledge of all times and ages; knowledge of how to look to the source, or as Hawai'ians term it, nana i ke kumu. Winners' Camp teaches teens to realize that true knowledge brings understanding and self-awareness, and will lead to a more positive and successful life.
We teach the Five "R's" of Life: Respect, Responsibility, Resourcefulness, Restraint and Resilience!
CURRICULUM: We have introduced an amazing new piece called S.A.T.T. - Student Adventures in Test Taking - your teen will leave camp better equipped to take their SAT's, incorporating breathing, relaxation and stress release tools as well as academic savvy on 'how to take this very important test'.
SPECIAL PROGRAMS UPDATE: We are currently enhancing our High Ropes Challenge course to compliment our existing Low Ropes experiential learning adventures. Our generous license from the Kamehameha Schools, to use this former Nike military administrative site, allows us to run Winners' Camp Programs year-round. Our beautiful tropical climate makes this possible. If your school or youth group would like us to custom design a Winners' Camp Program here in the Islands, please contact us with your project goals. Once your group has been approved, each participant will need to fill out an application form, available for download here. Participants must submit this application form to their group leader.
