What does Aloha Beach Camp look like when completely set-up for camp during the summer? Lifeguard boats patrol the beach and supervise swimmers from the water. Camp counselor lifeguards stand with backs toward the ocean forming a boundry kids swimming, surfing and boogie board can't pass. (Boogie boardings, swimming and surfing take place in respective designated areas.) Additional counselor/lifeguards stand on the wet sand supervising campers in the ocean. Large orange cones and colored canopies designate Aloha Beach Camp's campsite on the sand where campers play games and congregate with counselors and other kids. Additional safety and supervision is provided by a single L.A. County lifeguard in Tower 7, at least five additional lifeguards in Zuma Beach Lifeguard Headquarters building, and several law enforcement officers at from the L.A. County Sherrif's station. Restrooms and snack bar are positioned just steps from our campsite. Campers never visit the restroom without a counselor.
Attending a beach camp, kids spend the balance of their day outside. We play lots of games on the sand and enjoy many activities in the water. When on the beach, campers are shaded by large tents and canopies.
Aloha Beach Camp is Hiring Camp Counselors for the 2022 Summer Camp Season. Our next group interview is Sunday, May 15 in West Hills. If you'd like to join us, here's what you need to know.
YOU ARE INVITED TO ATTEND THE SUNDAY, MARCH 15 GROUP INTERVIEW for a summer job at Aloha Beach Camp this year.
What Should I Wear to the Interview?
Please dress casually. Shorts and tennis shoes are fine. T-shirts are fine. Whatever you feel comfortable wearing is fine.
What Should I Bring? How Should I Prepare?
Please prepare a game, skit, or song to teach to the group, as if the group were children. If you need any equipment for your activity (such as ball if you're teaching a game involving a ball, or props if you are teaching a skit), please bring it with you. Please limit your activity to 7 minutes or less because we expect a large turnout for this Group Interview and only have a limited amount of time for everyone to teach their skits or activities.
How Many Positions are Available?
Good question. The short answer is, we're not sure yet, mostly because we have many returning staff members from last summer and still waiting to hear from several others about their status for this summer. But we can tell you this: if you are interested in working as a camp counselor at Aloha Beach Camp this summer, it's probably worth your time to attend this interview as we anticipate having at least a few (if not more) spots open for camp counselor positions this year.
What if it Rains?
Depending on the severity of the rain, we may need to cancel the interview. If rain is predicted (or it's actually raining) the morning of March 15, please check your email for an update.
What if I Can't Make the Group Interview?
If you're interested in working at Aloha Beach Camp, please do your best to make Sunday's Group Interview. If you can't make it, let us know and we may be able to set up another time to meet you, but this Sunday, March 15, is FAR preferable.
Will There be More Interviews?
If we can fill all available positions on or before March 15, there will be no further interviews. Should we be unable to fill them, we may have additional interviews. In any case, if you want to work at Aloha Beach Camp this summer, YOU ARE STRONGLY ENCOURAGE TO ATTEND THE MARCH 15 GROUP INTERVIEW.
Email us here and we'll get back to you as soon as possible.
IF YOU WANT TO ATTEND THIS COMING SUNDAY'S INTERVIEW, PLEASE REPLY TO THIS EMAIL WITH THE WORDS "RSVP to March 15 Interview" (without quotes) IN THE SUBJECT LINE, AND WE'LL GET BACK TO YOU WITH A CONFIRMATION.
Meanwhile, we hope to see you Sunday, March 15 at 9:00 AM.
