August 3 - August 24
The MKF Summer Adventure is for girls aged 12-14
We are accepting a maximum of 13 girls
The cost for our three week summer program is $3300, not including airfare. Our closest airport is OGG. We have a staff member to travel with unaccompanied minors from LAX to OGG.
Our Maui Farm experience is a unique and intimate "family style" once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Our program is best suited for the more adventurous, flexible and independent type of girl. Being a small group gives personal attention to each and every participant. Pitching in is part of farm life and campers have the privilege of being a part of it. Living in nature is incredibly powerful and beautiful but also exposes you to the elements so make sure you can handle the outdoors!
Living with us on our farm for 3 weeks invites everyone into our lives and the daily grind. Every morning begins with feeding of our goats, sheep, chickens, ducks, geese and quails (and our puppy Matzah Ball and our 2 farm cats, Koa and Hobbes). The typical activities include collecting eggs, milking mama goat, planting pineapples, harvesting avocados, papayas, bananas & anything else growing on property, clearing cane grass and our streams.
Judaism doesn't live in a vacuum. Wherever you go in the world you are just as committed and inspired to be a proud, strong Jew. Here in the middle of the Pacific Ocean is no exception. The marriage of nature, beauty and a frum lifestyle gives real inspiration for living a well rounded, Jewish life. Deep discussions and Torah lessons from the farm make a lasting impact. As a perk, just living on the farm and interacting with our shabbos guests and the Jewish community on Maui is a boost for Jewish moral on the island and mutually beneficial for all.
Due to the pandemic we never know will be accessible or not, but what we for sure know is that we will have a wonderful time regardless. Water surrounds us on this tropuical island paradise. We take advantage of the warm oceans with early morning snorkeling, body boarding, water hikes, kite-surf & wind-surf watching or just relaxing on the beach until the sun sets.
Put on your hiking boots or sneakers and prepare to be wowed. Maui has 9 microclimates, giving us access to 10,000 foot volcanoes, moon-like crater hikes, lava rock trails, waterfall crossings and bamboo forests. Some hikes are more difficult and we take our time with multiple rests and drink & snack breaks.
Living on the farm lends itself to much opportunities for creativity. We do lots of painting (rocks, pallets, cabins, ourselves), dying, weaving, building, art lessons and the like or food creation such as making our own coffee, cocoa, sourdough bread or noni juice from farm to table.
