In the afternoons, all drummers will come together in a large group for sessions with Born To Drum faculty and/or guest artists.
Additional activities will be offered, including faculty and student performances, swimming, a day trip to the volcano, a visit to Hilo and the farm markets, beautiful prepared farm lunches, an evening bonfire with star gazing and snacks, and other Hawaiian experiences.
