In 2011, a group of moms banded together to gather teachers and offer enrichment classes along the North Shore so as to not have to drive all over the island for quality classes for their children. Throughout the past 10 years they have hosted several classes for both children and adults; childrenʻs art, drama, dance, yoga, spring break and summer camps, language learning and more. For adults they have offered several different wellness classes including yoga, pilates, breath work, retreats and more. They have hosted classes in a variety of locations, however, the Boy Scout Camp surpasses them all in aligning with their vision of offering children, adult and senior classes all in one spectacular setting, and supporting the whole family.
Committed to the Cause
Hale Anuenue was created by a group of mothers who recognized a need for enrichment opportunities along the North Shore of Oahu. They created Hale Anuenue in hopes of raising funds, and creating opportunities for art, music, dance, yoga and other enrichment activities, not only for their children but for all the members of their community. Fast forward nearly a decade, the Boy Scout Camp in Pupukea has opened its doors to Hale Anuenue, and Pupukea Schoolhouse and Early Edventures Pre School have bloomed. Coming soon; after school programs, wellness classes, seniors offerings and more. Hale Anuenue strives to make offerings affordable for all, offering scholarships and karmic exchange.
