From Wikipedia: Waiʻanae is in Honolulu County, Hawaii. It is located on the island of Oʻahu.

"We all camp in Waiʻanae in the summer" is also accepted.

I would think "We camp..." should be accepted, as well as "We all camp...", as it is standard accepted English grammar. "We all" sounds dialectal, like "you all = y'all," which is very dialectical and not standard English grammar.
