Winners' Camp Foundation was founded in 1985 by Delorese Malulani Gregoire and a team of committed graduates of Marshall Thurber's "Business and You" Lifeskills Courses. Key players were Vic Quiton, Guy Tucker, Dr.Trinidad Hunt, Michael Wall, Dr.Stephanie Burns, Mick Quenzer, Pam Chambers and Anthony Robbins.
In the year 2000 we were blessed with a license to use Kamehame Ridge Site from the Kamehameha Schools Princess Pauahi Bishop Estate. We named the site Hawai'i Leadership Academy and we produce programs for Academic Institutions and Educational Foundations.
