Kamehamaha Schools - Hilo Camp
With extraordinary foresight, Princess Bernice Pauahi Bishop, great-granddaughter and last royal descendant of Kamehameha the Great founded Kamehameha Schools.
Kamehameha Schools' mission is to fulfill Pauahi's desire to create educational opportunities in perpetuity to improve the capability and well-being of people of Hawaiian ancestry.
Kamehameha Schools is a dynamic and nurturing learning community committed to educational excellence.
We assist people of Hawaiian ancestry to achieve their highest potential as “good and industrious men and women.” We do so by contributing to their development as people who are grounded in spiritual and Christian values; intellectually, emotionally, and socially self-reliant; resourceful, resilient, life-long learners; equipped with the skills they need to succeed in endeavors of their choosing; responsible, ethical, contributing members of their multi-cultural and diverse communities, and prepared to practice and perpetuate the Hawaiian values and traditions of Ke Ali‘i Pauahi.
