Pacific Quest operates year-round and serves co-ed adolescents, ages 13-17 and co-ed young adults, ages 18-24. Our average length of stay is 8-10 weeks; however, sometimes a stay is shorter or longer depending on the individual needs of each family.

We take pride in the work we do and the relationships we build including our network of referring professionals. We carefully select our participants based on these referrals, a consultation with parents, our application, psycho-educational testing when appropriate, and other information to ensure their appropriateness.

We are available 24 hours a day for any emergency or contingency. We encourage you to call us and ask detailed questions to see if we may be appropriate.

Students may arrive any day of the week at any time, 365 days a year. Pacific Quest provides complimentary transportation to and from the KONA (KOA) or HILO (ITO) airports. Many of our students arrive on their own, but students can arrive with a parent, relative or transport agent if necessary. Upon arrival, students are met by a PQ staff member at the security exit and driven directly to the base camp (about 2 hours).  Upon discharge, students are driven to the airport, checked in at the counter and sent though security by a PQ staff member.

At this time, there are no specific airlines with special or discounted tickets to Hawaii. We suggest you check online travel services or with your travel agent for the best fares and flight options.

Please speak to your admissions counselor if you have any questions about travel details.

We provide all outfitting and gear.  The only items necessary to bring include:

If needed:  medications, glasses, contacts, retainers.

If a student arrives with an iPod, cell phone, electronics, computer, jewelry, photos, books, extra clothes, etc..  We will store these personal items in a secure location during their stay with us.

For any assistance with transportation or accommodations for family members, please call our admissions department at (808) 937-5806.
