Welcome to Aloha Music Camp!
The Aloha Music Camp is a week-long immersion into the music, dance, language and culture of Hawai‘i. Join the Beamer ‘ohana — famed slack key pioneer Keola, kumu hula Moanalani Beamer and Hawaiian language specialist Kaliko Beamer-Trapp — along with some of the most respected musicians, performers and instructors in the islands.
Come join the fun. Be inspired by beautiful Hawaiian sunsets. Learn to play slack key guitar, ʻukulele, or steel guitar. Dance hula, make a lei, sing Hawaiian songs, even build a beautiful Hawaiian instrument. Or just listen to some great music and wonderful stories, all interwoven with the magic of aloha.
Aloha Music Camp is presented by Keola Beamer and the Mohala Hou Foundation.

Last October, Keola Beamer and his `ohana brought a group of us together for a “noble experiment” on the island of Lana`i, for the first ever Ke Ola Retreat. It was a wonderful week that included teachings by internationally known meditation, Qi Gong, Hawaiian culture and music masters, with the purpose of freeing up and unlocking our individual creativity. The smaller-sized groups made the retreat very special, and we got to know our fellow attendees on a deeper level than has ever been possible before.
All those who attended Ke Ola Retreat in 2014 felt deeply that the experience was an event worth sharing. This October, Keola was planning to present a similar experience on the island of Maui. Unfortunately, the 2015 Retreat has not attracted enough participants to make the event financially viable. It is with heavy hearts that we must announce that this event is canceled.
We are now refocusing our energies spreading Aloha and Hawaiian culture in the way for which we are well known. February, 2016 will be Aloha Music Camp’s third year on Kaua`i, and the Camp is quickly selling out. We love the Marriott at Coconut Beach, and it is our hope that all of you who were hoping to join us on Maui will be able to join us for this always wonderful event.
Aloha always. A hui hou!
