BY CHRISTIANE BOLOSAN-YEE  – The Ewa Beach Community Based Development Organization is proud to be helping to promote another FREE Ocean Clinic workshop being offered by Na Kama Kai which is a great 501c3 non-profit organization making a difference in our keiki’s lives. Please gather and send me names of your keiki between the ages of 2-18yrs interested in attending this FREE workshop on Sunday, May 13.

Please note, May 13 is Mother’s Day. Limited spots are available so I will be submitting our first sign up sheet on the 17th of April and the second sign up sheet will be sent on the 29th. If interested, please send me the following: names and ages of children and include a parent’s contact name, email and phone number and I will place them on our Ewa Beach CBDO organization sign up list. Also have parents indicate what is their preferred and 2nd preferred workshop time, 9am, 10am, 11am, 1pm and 2pm.


Workshops are about 1.5 hours long where children learn ocean safety and awareness, they go out to Stand up paddle (SUP) and/or surf with a one on one instructor and they also go out on a canoe ride too! Space is limited so please gather info and send to me, the sooner the better. I will be submitting 2 lists, one on April 17th for the first submission and April 29th for the second submission. Registration is taken on a first come first serve basis. Let me know if you have any questions.

I hope we get a great turnout from Ewa Beach again. When we helped to promote this event last August, we had 32 kids signed up through our organization which was really great and we look forward to a great turnout again. We are also looking for volunteers that are willing to help set up and/or break down and watch the shore line to help instructors and kids coming in and out of the water. Let me know if anyone is available to volunteer as well. Please pass on this info and I hope you can gather some people who are really interested that will come out to take advantage of this great opportunity for our community. Feel free to take a look on our website and click on ‘Gallery’ on the left sidebar to view pictures from our last participation in the successful Na Kama Kai event out at Ewa Beach Park. Hope to see you there!
