Hawaiiana Award Program
Hawaiiana is a special award earned only at an Aloha Council Camp. The course is for 2nd year campers and older. Adults are also eligible to enroll.
Hou Ki'u Program - Trail to First Class
The Hou Ki'u program is a very important program aimed at giving new Scouts a good foundation upon which to build their Scouting career. It supplements your Troop’s skills development training and gives young Scouts an introduction to Scouting’s exciting outdoor program. The Hou Ki'u program concentrates on the Patrol Method, Tenderfoot to 1st Class requirements, and FUN! A new Scout’s first summer camp experience is a great indicator of how long he will stay in Scouting. If he has a great experience, he is much more likely to stay in Scouting and in your troop for a long time to come!
The Shooting Sports program includes archery, rifle, and shotgun. On each range, a Scout can expect to learn safety and responsibility. On all shooting sports ranges, adults and Scouts have opportunities for advancement, recreation, and competitive shooting. Each merit badge offers Scouts an introduction to shooting sports. Recommended for 3rd year plus campers only.
