Boy Scouts, Aloha Council awarded funding

Sen. Lorraine Inouye is excited to announce that Camp Honokaia on Hawaii Island and the Camp Alan Faye Program on Kauai will receive funding for renovations and improvements.


Governor Ige released $450,000, which will be used to renovate these camps, upgrade facilities, add program infrastructure and replaced aged toilets and shower facilities, bringing them into compliance with the EPA and Department of Health regulations. Funding will also be for programs expanded by the addition of the Cub Scout girls, which required additional facilities to serve both girls and boys.
