Talk Story Camp 2013
Presented by the Alliance for Culture & Arts

@ CAMP PAMALU, North Shore (Pupukea), Oahu
July 19-21, 2013
Parks Dept. CANCELS use of
KUALOA PARK for ‘TALK STORY CAMP’
The City’s Parks Department decided NOT TO ALLOW anything, including ‘Talk Story Camp’ (as promised) at Kualoa Beach Park this summer. A strongly worded letter from the Alliance for Culture & Arts (ACA, chaperones this event) asked the Parks Dept. to explain, and suggested a reprieve. After all, based upon their own scheduling, airline tickets have been bought by storytellers volunteering to contribute to this unique public event from Japan, Philippines, Canada, San Francisco & Chicago. No word at all has come after 12 days. Mum. Sigh.
We have not been sitting around moaning.
A NEW SITE HAS BEEN FOUND!
The Girl Scout’s ‘Camp Pamalu’ is available July 19-21 (in the hills of Pupukea, North Shore). It costs more, has no beach, but it does have a kitchen & common dining area, even cabins, running water & showers, hiking trails & a fire pit (Imu? questionable). It is private. ACA has agreed to ‘eat’ much of the added cost so that families can afford to come, and new contacts into the Haleiwa/Waialua Town Association are suddenly blooming, so North Shore lore will be added.
