Ohana Schedule

The Ohana student leadership team has designed a diverse group of activities to fill each day and build an "Ohana" that will provide you with a supportive community and an opportunity to be a part of past Ohana groups (over 100 current students). Each evening there will be options to join fun group activities. This schedule is subject to change.
