Pricing, Registration, and Payment Information
Mohala Hou Foundation has as its mission the perpetuation of Hawaiian culture in all its aspects, particularly through education in Hawaiian music and cultural arts. Your attendance at Camp helps us to fulfill that mission – and we all have great fun together while doing so!
Three Registration Types: Camper, Companion, and Keiki
The Camper full rate includes all instruction, concerts, talk-stories, and other events during the week of Camp.
The Companion non-instructional adult rate requires an accompanying full Camper registration. It includes the same items as the Camper rate, but does not include any instruction. It’s a great way to have a vacation, get caught up on some reading, or take time out by the beach, and then hang out with the rest of us whenever you like!
The Keiki rate includes the same items the adult full Camper rate, but is for children 12 and under. So bring those budding ʻukulele players and hula dancers to Camp and let them get educated while having fun at the same time!
Camp Registration Rates for AMC 2023 (includes meals)
- Camper 2023 full rate: $2,400 per person
- Companion Partner or Spouse, 2023 non-instructional rate: $1600
- Keiki (Child 12 and under), full rate: $800
Meals During Camp
All registrations include all meals during Camp (breakfast, lunch, and dinner daily), as well as the special “Lūʻau Night” on Thursday including entertainment. Meals are included beginning with dinner Sunday, and continue through breakfast on Saturday.
We have two basic options for AMC 2023: (1) pay in full at registration; or (2) pay half up-front at registration with the balance due by January 15th, 2023.
If AMC 2023 has to be cancelled because of Hawaiʻi State, County, or other government regulations, or curtailment of transportation (i.e., if the Governor restricts inbound travel or decrees intolerable size limits on public gatherings), we will obtain a complete refund from the hotel and then refund your tuition in full.
If you cancel by December 1, 2022, you will get a full refund.
If you cancel between 2 December 2022 and 15 January 2023, you can get a partial refund. The refund will be whatever you paid in, less $600 per Full Camper and less $400 per Companion.
Due to our arrangements with the hotel, we are unable to offer refunds after January 15th, 2023. If there are extenuating circumstances, please Contact Us.
Full refunds are available anytime for Keiki registrations.
For ʻukulele building, we can offer full refunds up to January 15th, 2023. After that point, we can only refund a Camper for ʻukulele building if we are able to fill the slot.
If you do cancel your AMC 2023 attendance, you can have us apply your refund to tuition for a later Camp.
Please note that this policy refers only to AMC fees, not to your room arrangements with the hotel.

We prefer simple online payments by credit or debit card through our safe and secure payment processor, Stripe. If you absolutely need to pay by check, please contact our Registrar via our Contact Us form to make arrangements. Please keep in mind that if Camp is near to selling out, an online credit card payment will ensure your spot immediately and is much faster than a check.
Assistance With Registration
If you need assistance with registration, please contact our Registrar by using the Contact Us form. We encourage you to try using our fast new online registration system first, however. Response times for assisted registration can be up to 48 hours.
Classes such as ʻukulele and steel guitar building (if offered), as well as classes which make hula implements, will require a fee for the materials. Fees are payable during using our online registration system.
ʻUkulele Building for 2023
The ʻukulele class is available on a limited “first-come, first-served” basis for five Campers this year and requires a materials fee of $500. Please see the Instrument Building page for more information. ʻUkulele building is open to Campers aged 12 and up.
Hotel Information for AMC 2023
Your Hotel Stay
We have worked hard with the folks at the Outrigger Kona Resort on Hawaiʻi Island to keep the prices as low as possible and we have found great deals for you this year.
Please note that your hotel stay is not included in the above Camper, Companion, or Keiki registrations. Be sure to book your room as soon as possible after registration because they sell out fast; also be sure to mention that you are with Aloha Music Camp and you want the special “group rate”.
We have negotiated the following AMC Group Rate for lodging at the Outrigger Kona Resort on Hawaiʻi Island, subject to availability.
- Resort View Room @ $209/night (plus tax)
- Ocean View Room @ $269/night (plus tax)
- Parking @ $5/day
- No resort fees, but we get all of the resort package amenities.
These rates are considerably less expensive than current rates if you booked with the hotel directly. It is important to note the AMC Group Rate will not be available until you have completed registration for AMC 2023, at which point a link to access the AMC Group Rate will be provided to you in your confirmation email. For this reason, please do not try to book your room directly with the hotel before you are registered, or you will pay more!
All attendees must be fully vaccinated to participate. Proof of vaccination will be required when you pick up your registration materials at Camp.
We will follow County of Hawaiʻi, State of Hawaiʻi, and CDC guidance with respect to social distancing, masks, and sizes for indoor and outdoor gatherings. Since we are still months away from Camp, we can’t yet say specifically how various Camp activities will be impacted. Our first and foremost priority is to keep everybody safe and healthy. We will offer additional information as it becomes available.
There is a very slight chance that AMC 2023 may be cancelled if restrictions imposed by the State of Hawaii, County of Hawaiʻi, or in air travel make it impossible to hold Camp. As stated above in the “Refunds” section, if Camp is cancelled due to “impossibility” before Camp starts, MHF will refund your Camp registration payment(s) in full.
Registration began for Aloha Music Camp 2023 on Tuesday, August 9, 2022 at 7:45am Hawaiian Standard Time (10:45am US Pacific Daylight Time, 11:45am US Mountain Daylight Time, 1:45pm US Eastern Daylight Time), 19:15 GMT).
Please find the Registration Form on the CAMP REGISTRATION PAGE. We look forward to seeing you at Camp in April 2023!
