Two summers ago, in 2020, we were unable to open camp due to COVID-19.
In 2021, we operated on a limited scale while still under the cloud of COVID.
For instance, we had a blast at the beach, but were to unable visit Castaic Lake for boating, wakeboarding, tubing or jet skiing as part of our phased reopening plan while still dealing with COVID-19.
This summer, for 2022, we are hoping and planning for a return to normalcy while offering all the usual activities and experiences campers love.
At the same time, the Omicron variant is raging. And as we all know, the only thing predictable about the coronavirus pandemic -- and what may happen next -- is unpredictability itself.
Accordingly, even though we are hoping to reimplement lake activities, and all the other events and locations campers have come to know and love about Aloha, it's prudent for all of us to move forward with a certain degree of educated skepticism that COVID-19 is completely behind us, and everything will be normal for summer 2022.
So please consider this post a friendly "heads-up." While we always strive to present the program and activities we plan for, COVID-19 might throw us a curveball. Activities, events, experiences and other offerings may be modified, unavailable, subject to limited capacity, closure, or cancellation depending on evolving COVID-19 circumstances or other reasons without notice.
In the age of COVID, we're all used to this by now. We hope you will go with the flow and understand that no matter what happens, we will always error on the side of keeping campers, staff and the public safe while presenting the best possible program for kids.
Can't wait to see you this summer. Aloha!!
