Hello Kauai folks! Boy am I going to need your help with this one.
Our high school football team has been invited to play a game in Hawaii, on Kauai, in August of 2013. As the leader of the parent club, I've been tasked with planning this trip for about 40 people. We will work with a travel agent for transportation and lodging, but I could use all of the help that I can get planning the rest of it.
We plan to have the kids in condos, well chaperoned, of course, so we will have breakfast at "home" each day. Each condo will be given a box of breakfast foods to last for the week, purchased from Costco.
I am thinking lots of grocery-store lunches, sandwiches, etc. along with coolers full of Gatorade and soda, consumed at various parks and beaches.
We would like to take the boys to one luau while we are there, and I need to figure out some good teenage-boy (hungry, beefy teenage-boy) friendly dinner locations. We are on a shoestring budget - we are still working on fundraising so I don't know exactly how tight our budget is. But we are not from a wealthy town and we are working really hard to raise the money.
I need to get an idea of what costs will be. Average cost of a lunch, inexpensive dinner, so that I have some idea what to budget. Would anyone be willing or able to help me with that one?
Also, although I'm starting to do my research on the island now, if anyone has any recommendations for things that teenage (active, energetic) boys would enjoy I'm all ears. The kids will practice for a few hours each day, but then we will take them to do fun stuff for the rest of the day. Lots of beach time, maybe a few hikes (they are athletes, so they should be able to handle a hike or three, right?). I doubt it's in our budget to take them on a sailing trip, although that would be really cool.
Thank you to anyone able to give me some information.
