Our very 1st Camp Kerry Maui Retreats surpasses all expectations!

The Camp Kerry families, ourselves and namely the Counsellors are in awe at exactly how much healing, nurturing and bonding of each family as a unit took place, as well as the relationships formed with the other families, the Counsellors and my own family. A special healing has taken place over the past eight days. It is difficult to find the words to describe the experience in totality, however it is for certain that we are changed for the better.

Camp Kerry Retreat Day 6

On Day 4 we all headed out early with Charlie Fleck of Blue Soul Maui and his 19 year old nephew Charlie of Spokane to do a hike in the Bamboo Forest. This is a beautiful hike just past Ho'okipa and the Twin Falls. I have done this hike once before and remembered it being easy as well as beautiful. We had to do a little bit of rope and ladder climbing but really nothing dangerous or too high. Aside from a couple of people who required some extra coaxing and hand holding, the children and I forged ahead and reached the part where you get to jump in and go for a 5 minute swim to the final area where there is a beautiful lagoon and waterfall.

We are only days away from welcoming our families from Camp Kerry to Maui Life Retreats! The three families arrive on July 10th for eight days of fun in the sun.

We continue to be grateful to all the wonderful donations received for this Ohana Nui Retreat, and offer a heartfelt mahalo to the following donors:

 The Camp Kerry families have been in Maui what will be 48 hours this evening at 10:30pm. They are glowing with excitement and happiness and ever so grateful. It has been a jam packed two days! Yesterday, Wednesday the families had their healing circles with their Counselors and then the afternoon at the beach. It was heart warming to see them all playing in the water in the very large waves, laughing and swimming, made it all worthwhile! The joy on their faces was so apparent.
