Flight Information 
Students should fly into the Hilo Airport (ITO) no later than 4:00 pm on Sunday, June 9 OR June 16. The linked document above gives important information about booking flights.

Unlike our other courses, housing is included as part of the course price. Because we will be traveling so much during the week, students are required to stay in the housing provided. For the first four nights, we will be staying in dorms at Kilauea Military Camp. The last two nights we will stay at Hilo Hawaiian Hotel. You may add your own bed instead of a shared bed at the hotel for an additional $80 when registering.
