HOW DO I MAKE PLANE RESERVATIONS? All participants attending from Alaska should do their best to coordinate travel out of Anchorage so that both Fort Wainwright and Fort Richardson participants travel on the same flight out of Anchorage and arrive in Hawaii together. CYS Coordinators will coordinate with PARO CYS staff for airline reservations and completion of orders.

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT THE WEATHER/CLIMATE CONDITIONS AT KMC TO BE LIKE? The park has distinct climate zones that vary according to elevation. Visitors should be prepared for a wide range of weather conditions. During Youth Leadership Forum, you may encounter temperatures between 50 and 90 degrees. Weather at KMC (4,000' elevation) fluctuates daily and can be rainy and chilly any time of the year. The coastal plain at the end of Chain of Craters Road is often hot, dry, and windy. Bring rain gear, light sweaters or jackets, sturdy shoes, hats, water bottles, sun glasses and high UV factor sunscreen. (This information is from the National Park Service.) Check the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park weather here.
WHERE SHOULD I CALL IN CASE OF AN EMERGENCY? The phone number at KMC is (808) 967-8333. (From the island of Oahu there is a direct dial number 438-6707.) YLF participants will not be allowed to receive phone calls. A message for one of the Region staff may be left with the desk. There will be limited opportunities for youth to call home.
