Camp Pupukea – Summer Camp

It is our mission to provide your Scout with the best possible experience, leading them on a lifelong journey that reinforces the Scout Oath and Law. This camping experience will allow your Scout to develop their character through personal challenge and success. There will also be opportunities for advancement and leadership. At Camp Pupukea, you will find a friendly and inviting atmosphere. We take seriously the needs of every Scout, Patrol, and Troop, and work hard to assemble a staff of Scouts and adults trained in Scout skills, the teaching EDGE (Explain, Demonstrate, Guide, Enable) method, and Scouting Safely.

Out of council troops will be enrolled in our Hawaiian Camping Adventure program.
