After-School Nature Enrichment Program

The Nature Enrichment Program (which was formerly called the After Care Program) is our signature, nature-based, after-school program at Kona Pacific. The program is focused on connecting children to nature through the use of ancient techniques, such as Coyote Mentoring, the 8 Shields Path, and primitive wilderness skills (i.e., shelter building, fire making, and ethnobotany) to activate the unique gifts of the individual children. Enrollment for the Nature Enrichment Program is on a first-come basis, with students going on a waitlist once full.

Mariah Mann is the leader of the program, and she brings her eight years of experience with Kona Pacific and her lifetime of pursuing connection to nature to her role of overseeing the program. She is also the owner of Journeys in the Na‘au, where she offers deep nature connection experiences on the Big Island. She is surrounded by a wealth of experience in her teammates Steve Fredlund, Angelo Pugliese, Nick Kern, Alli Craig, Johannah Duff, and Cara Moreau, all of whom bring their own specific specialties to the program and love connecting children to nature.
