Attention Teachers!

Every year, Pu'ukohola Heiau National Historic Site provides educational programs for school groups of all ages and class sizes. For more information on educational programs that the Park provides or if you would like to schedule a group visit, please contact the Visitor Center at (808) 882-7218 Ext. 1011 or by email.

Important Field Trip Information

  • Schedule your group as early as possible. Make sure you plan enough time for your students to benefit from your visit to the Park. 45-60 minutes is ideal, though 30 minutes is adequate for smaller groups.
  • If your group is running late on the day of your program, please contact the Park as soon as possible. Although Park staff will do everything possible to accommodate changes in times, groups arriving late cannot be guaranteed a guided program.
  • Spencer County Beach Park is adjacent to Pu'ukohola Heiau NHS and provides picnic tables and a pavilion for groups wishing to stop for a break, lunch, etc.
