Projects

Camp Taloali facilities served us so well for over 35 years, and we are working hard to keep up with demands of summer program and year-around events. We heartily welcome you to join us on large projects campaign where you can contribute to a greater good and have the pleasure seeing children run, laugh and enchanted among facilities you helped provided for.

We have ten cabins which each sleeps 8, two staff and six campers. Ironic cabins are the reason our expenditure are costly because cabins capacity limited us to a ratio of 1 staff to 3 campers, below the standard
s of 1 staff to 6 campers ratio. We required to hire more staff than necessary. We seek to expand our exist cabins to meet the standards of 2 staff to 12 campers, in other words, cabins to sleep at least 14 guests. Larger cabins allow us to reduce our personnel costs to nearly half. Contact us to visit the camp and review to discuss possibilities with the existing structures.
