Every year we make a new summer fun video for the upcoming day camp season. Check out our 2020 summer fun video here.
Does Your Child Want to Learn to Surf? Try Aloha Beach Camp's Los Angeles Surf Camp for Kids and Teens this Summer!
If your child loves the beach and has always wanted to learn to surf, Aloha Beach Camp's L.A. surf camp is just the ticket for them this summer. No matter if your child is an experienced surfer, just starting out, or has never surfed before, our surf camp program is for you. Campers learn to surf on the sand in a group lesson. Then, whenever they feel ready, enter the ocean with their counselor for a personalized one-on-one surfing lesson in calm gentle waves and progress from there. Our staff will be by your child's side the entire time. Your camper will come home with a huge smile on their face, beaming with pride as they tell you how much fun they had surfing and they even stood up on their surfboard the very first time they tried! You can't beat surfing's heath benefits, either. It's a safe, fun and healthy physical outdoor activity for kids. Try Aloha Beach Camp this summer!
Last summer (2019) we introduced a new activity at Aloha Beach Camp which become an instant hit with the campers: Stand-up Paddleboarding.
So many kids asked for more of this activity that we've decided to triple up on the fun this year.
Last summer we only offered on stand-up paddleboarding day. This summer (2020) campers can enjoy three separate stand-up paddleboarding days at camp!
Stand-up Paddleboarding takes place at Channel Islands Harbor in Oxnard. It's easy and takes place in calm water with no waves. Our counselors are in the water too, on kayaks, provide assistance to any camper who needs it. You can even do this activity on your knees!
By now you might be wondering how your child will get to Oxnard so they can participate. Aloha Beach Camp provides free transportation for every child, so don't worry, you don't have drive your son or daughter all the way to camp yourself! Thursday, July 30 is now on the schedule for the stand-up paddleboard activity. We haven't identified the other two days, but we promise we'll have them soon.
Meanwhile, you can sign up here for the July 30 stand-up paddleboarding day if you don't want to wait!
But is it Safe?
Many parents who send their kids to Aloha Beach Camp and others considering our program want to make sure we've covered all our bases relating to safety. Rest assured we have a 50 point safety program in place to make sure your child comes home safe, sandy and happy each day. We'll go into detail on all 50 points in another blog post soon.
Meanwhile, we wanted to show you today how closely your child will be supervised under our care at beach camp, most notably during water activities. All of our counselors are lifeguards and swim together with your kids in the ocean at all times. Campers never swim alone.
That's not all. Our program takes place directly in front of Zuma Beach Lifeguard Headquarters tower. Instead of having just one lifeguard in a single tower supervising our campers, there's 6 or 8 in the headquarters tower at all times instead. That's up to 8 times more lifeguard supervision than other beach camps provide!
Here's something else to give you extra peace of mind. Our campers aren't just supervised by the Zuma Beach lifeguards from the shore, but in the water, too. The lifeguards constantly patrol the ocean from their boat, right in front of our campers when they're swimming. That means you never have to worry about anything going wrong because our beach camp safety program is locked down!
We have a 100% all-time safety record and intend to keep it like that. But if you ever want to visit at camp during the summer to see our safety program in action, you're invited to come any time. We have an open door policy and enjoy meeting parents in person. Just let us know before you come so we can show you exactly where to meet us. See you this summer!
