We will start the 9-day journey with four days of training with our partners at Kihei Canoe Club before making the epic Auau Channel crossing from Maui to Lanai as part of the Paddle for Life Maui event. This two-day voyage begins in Ka’anapali on October 13th, paddling around the backside of Lanai and landing at Manele Bay in the evening. On the morning of October 14th, canoes will make the final crossing back across the Auau Channel, retuning to Ka’anapali Beach. October 15th is a recovery day, and the 16th is departure day.
The Voyage requires a slight higher level of fitness than our regular camps. Intermediate and somewhat strong swimming skills are required. Activity will be moderate to intense for 6 full days. If you have any questions about the fitness level, please ask me specifically.
This camp, requires a fundraising component of survivor attendees of $1500. We’ll work with you in any way we can to help you meet your goal. Participants must pay their airfare to Maui, but all expenses are covered once participants reach Maui. I guarantee you… This camp will be one of the most magical experiences of a lifetime.
