Fall Break is around the corner so we thought we’d share some ideas now so you can game plan your way through the coming month.

Pumpkin Patch Fun

The Kula Country Farms Pumpkin Patch opens on October 1st and we can now declare that Fall has officially arrived! Choose from a beautiful variety of pumpkins and gourds, take advantage of adorable photo opportunities, and find local goods at the Farm Stand. Due to limitations on capacity, we suggest planning a weekday morning—perfect during Fall Break for some. Open every day in October from 9am-4pm. $3 entrance, free under 2 years old. kulacountryfarmsmaui.com/pumpkin-patch

From Screen to Sea

Pacific Whale Foundation’s pilot virtual program earlier this year was such a success, they are now offering Ocean Camp: From Screen to Sea, Oct. 5-9, an educational program for Maui first- through fifth-graders featuring both virtual and in-person ocean engagement. Centered around the theme,“When You Wish Upon a Sea Star,” the week-long session includes daily live-streaming science lessons, team-building games, and other activities, expressive crafts, and nature-based inquiry. On the last day of camp, campers enjoy a private boat trip out of Ma’alaea Harbor. pacificwhale.org/education/ocean-camp
