Huaka'i Educational Programs for Schools


School Programs

  • Virtual and in-person programs are offered on weekdays between 9 am - 5 pm.
  • Maximum group size for in-person programs = 25 students (due to Covid-19 restrictions, we may break into smaller groups in order to properly maintain social distancing on the trails)
  • One chaperone for every ten students is required. Chaperones must provide for the safety of students in their care. **Be sure students bring necessary medical supplies such as asthma inhalers and epipens.**

Request a program at least six weeks in advance via this email form and include the following information:

  • Today's Date
  • School Name
  • Teacher
  • Address
  • Phone
  • Email
  • Grade Level
  • Number of Students
  • Number of Chaperones
  • Preferred Date
  • Alternate Date

An Educational Fee Waiver is also required two weeks prior to your visit

  • Prepare Ahead: Weather in the park is unpredictable. Come prepared with rain gear, sturdy walking shoes, hat, sunscreen, water, and warm clothing for each person in your group.
  • Location: Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park is located on Highway 11, 28 miles south of Hilo which is a 45 minute drive.
  • Health Hazards: Visitors with asthma, heart, or lung conditions should be aware that there may be high levels of volcanic sulfur fumes at times in the park which may aggravate or induce severe medical conditions.

Because of the dynamic nature of the volcanoes in Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park (e.g. eruptions, earthquakes, tsunami and fires etc.), programs may be cancelled without notice.

We look forward to your visit!
