Regular Service Overnights In Haleakala Crater

Service trip participants will backpack into the crater to a cabin or campsite and back.  Depending upon the trip, the group will perform one of a number of tasks ranging from cabin maintenance to native planting to invasive species removal.

For all overnight trips in the Crater, participants need to bring first day's water, sun and rain protection, work gloves, comfortable boots or walking shoes, sleeping bag, extra socks, breakfasts, lunches, dinner food contributions as coordinated by the leader, personal supplies, a flashlight,  and warm clothing. Volunteers on service trips stay free in the cabins which are equipped with bunks, firewood, dishes and cooking utensils. (Fee required for IUCN trips)
