Every camper, on their first day of camp, is given a swim assessment by our staff. The purpose of the assessment is to gauge the child's comfort and experience level in the ocean and assign them safe and specific swimming boundaries. Campers are given color-coded wristbands (based on the outcome of their swimming assessment) designating how deep we'll allow them to go in the ocean. No child is allowed deeper than their waist with feet firmly set on the ocean floor. Campers get a new wristband each day and love collecting them day-after-day as souvenirs of their time at camp.
As many families know by now, we had to postpone our Sunday, March 20 Aloha Beach Camp Open House scheduled to take place at Zuma Beach.
The LA Marathon and nighttime rain created problems, so we rescheduled the event. The new date is Sunday, April 24.
This is an in-person event!
Grab your free tickets here.
We'll see you at Zuma on Sunday, April 24 starting at 1:30 pm for our next Open House!

Aloha Beach Camp
We have made the difficult decision to cancel this Sunday's March 20, 2022 Open House scheduled to take place at Zuma Beach.
Rain is predicted Saturday night, which means the sand conditions will not allow us to host this event to our usual standards. You will not get a true representation of the Aloha Beach Camp experience. No one wants to play in wet and heavy sand!
Further, the LA Marathon takes place Sunday, which will cause mass road closures and frustrating traffic from Dodger Stadium to Century City, including primary streets families will need to get to the beach. When we planned this event, we didn't know the dates coincided.
We had an open house years ago the same day at the LA Marathon. This caused lots of frustration among families and prevented many families who wanted to attend the open house from enjoying the opportunity.
We are aware over 200+ families were planning on joining us this Sunday and signing up for camp. We will extend the Early Bird Discount through the end of this month as a make-good for canceling the open house.
You now have until March 31 to sign up for camp and still save money, however, based on high demand and very limited space, we highly advise against waiting that long.
Later this week, we will identify 3 new dates for in-person and virtual open houses and private site tours as well. Adding these new dates and events will ensure everyone who wanted to attend this Sunday gets the chance. We will email you in a few days with the new date options. If you sign up now and then decide after attending one of these events that camp isn't the right fit, we will refund your full deposit right away.
Thank you for choosing Aloha Beach Camp. Bummer we can't be together this weekend, but we will reschedule everything soon.
All the best,
Aloha Beach Camp
