HONOLULU – Senator Lorraine Inouye is excited to announce that Camp Honokaia on Hawai'i Island and the Camp Alan Faye Program on Kaua'i will receive funding for renovations and improvements.
Governor Ige released $450,000, which will be used to renovate these camps, upgrade facilities, add program infrastructure and replaced aged toilets and shower facilities bringing them into compliance with the EPA and Department of Health regulations. Funding will also be for programs expanded by the addition of the Cub Scout girls, which required additional facilities to serve both girls and boys.
Senator Inouye is grateful that the Governor has released these funds to complete the necessary renovations to Camp Honokaia's deteriorating infrastructure. This award will benefit the Boy Scouts of America, Aloha Council and numerous non-profit organizations that utilize the facilities as well. It is critical that the State maintain good partnerships with non-profit organizations that are promoting the development of future stewards of the 'aina.
