Camp Mokuleia renovation pau, diocese reports

By Star-Advertiser staff

POSTED:



The Episcopal Diocese of Hawaii recently completed a $1 million renovation of Camp Mokuleia, formerly a favorite venue for retreats, family reunions and vacations.

A key part of the overhaul resulted from the hiring two years ago of David Turner, an ordained United Church of Christ minister and a chaplain at Punahou School, as an interim executive director, according to a news release from the diocese's board of directors. He was made the permanent director, a position vacant since 2001, in April.

"For the Episcopal Church and the United Church of Christ, this is one of their first joint ministerial calls in Hawaii in over 150 years and celebrates a spirit of collaboration," the release said.

Over the years, the camp became run-down and lost its popularity, but Turner turned the operation around financially and physically, and made the camp environmentally sustainable, the release said. The camp also offers its own programs, which include a Challenge Course, garden activities, nature-based activities and an emphasis on Hawaiian culture and wisdom, to schools and church and business groups.
