about us

Camp Pālehua is a puʻuhonua (refuge) where a deepened understanding of the ʻāina (land) awakens a desire for stewardship in our community and beyond. 


Camp Pālehua's mission is to create unforgettable experiences in a unique mauka environment for the local community and visitors from around the world. We offer educational programs and activities in an effort to foster the next generation of stewards; events to network and expand collaboration opportunities in our community; and overnight accommodations in order for guests to build personal connections with the land.

Camp Pālehua (formerly Camp Timberline) is part of 1,600 acres of conservation and agricultural land owned by Gill 'Ewa Lands, LLC (GEL). We are perched on the southern slopes of the Wai'anae mountains, nestled in a forest with commanding views of the southern and western coastline of O'ahu. GEL is committed to protecting the natural environment and cultural sites and restoring the native forest. 


We welcome individuals and groups interested in environmental education, cultural preservation, outdoor adventure, team­work experiences and just plain fun!
