HYCC Team Training Week

Day 1: We started off the week with an earlier morning flight at 6:13am to Honolulu, Oahu. On the way there, we all exchanged names and started getting to know each other.

Meet my two team leaders: Ryan and Amanda

Meet my team mates (who will soon become my brothers and sisters)

L-R Me, Jacob, Caleb, Kyra, Thelma, Tadashi
Missing: Taylor

When we arrived to the airport, right of the back, we came up with a team handshake and a team name. We are now known as the "Kona Crew". Our team color is lavender :)

The buses came to pick all the teams from around Hawaii, islands including: Kauai, Oahu, Molokai, Hawaii Island, Lanai, and Maui. When we arrived to Paumalu Camp, we went to our villages to unpack and get dressed for the day. We meet up with our team and started brainstorming our team cheer.

Our cheer goes:

We're Kona Crew, hey

We work the roots, hey

We love the land, hey

You understand, man

Kona Crew!

We ate lunch. Did Low Ropes courses for team building. Had free time and showers. Then had dinner and saw a presentation from one of the coordinators.

Day 2: Had 8 hours of CPR/1st Aid Training. Took a test in the end and got certified :)

The dummies

We had dinner and afterwards, we had a little open mic night.

Courses consist of: Giant Ladder, Zip Lining, High V, and Playpin

Day 4: All the teams loaded up into the buses and headed to Waimea Valley for a service project. Teams were assigned different projects. Our team did weeding.
We had lunch and then headed to Waimea Bay for a swim test and fun in the sun.
When we got back to camp, we had dinner and presentation of the flags.

Day 5: Time to go home! BUT before that--we cleaned our villages, packed up, and loaded up and headed to Tree Tops Resturant at Manoa for a luncheon

Bye Oahu! Kona Crew had fun :)
