The Mauna Kea Beach Hotel, a luxury resort on the Kohala coast of the Big Island of Hawaii, revived its Keiki Club Adventures program on Sept. 27.

The fully supervised, daily program for keiki (Hawaiian for kids) ages 5 to 12 features a range of rotating activities that follow a schedule of themes that change daily.

Adventure options include shell hunting; hiking to ancient Hawaiian trails, caves and lava tubes; visiting nearby fishponds, streams and gardens; and finding treasures at stunning Kaunaoa Bay, which fronts the Mauna Kea Beach Hotel. Parents interested in sitting in with their kids can also join crafts, music and talk-story sessions.

"Our team had a blast bringing Keiki Club Adventures back to life and curating a unique mix of crafts, outdoor activities and cultural experiences," Candy Lucas, the hotel's director of activities said in a statement. "I'm confident our young guests will enjoy an action-packed day with Mana and Makana, our manta ray mascots, while learning about this special place and creating memories that will last a lifetime."

Some of the Keiki Club Adventures daily themes include Surf & Shaka Sunday, Fishy Friday, Manta Monday and Warrior Wednesday. The program is available from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and is priced at $125 for the full day or $75 for half. Guests staying at either the Mauna Kea Beach Hotel or the neighboring Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel are eligible.
