Our Hotel and Convention staff are unique in that we specialize in dealing with children and families from across the world.

Our trained and talented caregivers create lasting memories for keiki to take back to their homes and spread the aloha spirit.
Under the direction of Vice President Kathy Hew, Kama`aina Kids’ Hotel and Convention Division has provided quality programs for twenty-two years. In 1990, Kathy established our first hotel children’s program for guests, ages five through twelve. Our Convention Services began in 1997, when we conducted our first Camp NMA-Zing Youth Program for the National Medical Association’s Annual Convention and Scientific Assembly. By 2009, we were hired by the military to run Strong Bonds childcare for their respite programs, which include programs conducted in Guam, American Samoa and the outer Hawaiian Islands. In 2010, Kama`aina Kids started offering babysitting due to the high demand for care outside of program hours. The Hotel and Convention Division currently manages keiki programs and drop-in care at seven hotel and timeshare locations on Oahu and Maui. In 2012, we organized and ran 85 meeting and convention childcare programs.
We are proud of our 12-year relationship with the National Medical Association who has hired us to provide their annual youth programs across the nation. In addition, we have clients from Australia, New Zealand and Canada and have provided childcare in Guam and American Samoa for the Army Reserve.
Kama`aina Kids is a member of the Hawaii Visitors and Convention Bureau and National AfterSchool Association. We are accredited by the American Camp Association, National Association for the Education of Young Children and National Early Childhood Program Accreditation.
On Oahu, Kauai and Maui, we are located in hotel establishments throughout the islands of Hawai`i. These sites offer amenities associated with the hotels, such as access to scenic beaches and mountains, and close proximity to tourist attractions. In addition to servicing hotels across the State of Hawai`i, our convention childcare services lead us around the islands to destinations across the United States, and have included San Diego, New York, Dallas, Atlanta, Las Vegas and Orlando.
