Classes are out on May 28 for public school students. Then kids have eight weeks of summer break. What will they do? 

Plan ahead if you want your kids to get spots in programs of their choice. HONOLULU Family wants to help! We’ve gathered details for more than 90 programs. Before you start, consider these questions:

1. What are you and your children looking for? Do they need academic help, new artistic opportunities or outdoor adventures? Talk with your keiki about what they did or didn’t like about school and past summer programs.

2. Do your research. Consider not only the program’s content, but the logistics, including the earliest times to drop off and pick up children.

3. Find out when programs start accepting applications and the final date. Spaces in some popular classes and camps fill up far before the deadline. Some programs even start accepting applications in February.

4. Will you need more than one option? Not all programs last the entire summer. If you need several options, consider their specialties and how they can complement one another.
