We know these are scary times and want to reassure you we have every intention of operating this summer. We are also the only beach camp with the proper certifications to run a safe and organized summer camp program this year.
If you want to sign up for camp now with a 15% discount and pay just half the standard $450 deposit to hold space, this email is for you.
Here's the deal.
Aloha Beach Camp is L.A.'s ONLY Licensed, Permitted, and Accredited Beach Camp
As L.A.'s ONLY beach camp with the proper licensing, permits and accreditation to make sure your kids stay healthy and safe this summer, take heart when we say your child's health and safety in the face of all this chaos will be protected here.
Like you, all of us at Aloha Beach Camp we look forward to the day when this all blows over. At the same time, even in the midst of all this uncertainty, we can say with confidence we will not have enough room to accommodate everyone who wants to attend Aloha Beach Camp this year because we won't be able to meet the last minute enrollment demand that will inevitably come.
The demand for day camp enrollment is going to be SKY HIGH come May or June. Most families won't travel or send their kids to sleepaway camp for extended time this summer, but they WILL need worthwhile outdoor activities for their kids (especially after being cooped up in the house for so long).
They will turn to local day camps for the answer. But day camps will not have enough availability to accommodate everyone who wants to come.
If you wait till the last minute, please don't say we didn't warn you. But if you want to beat everyone else to the punch while enjoying peace of mind knowing you've got a safe and healthy outdoor place for your child to enjoy this summer, sign up now for Aloha Beach Camp .
Pay Only Half the Standard Deposit and Get a 15% Discount, Too
Register by March 22 with a cut-rate 50% summer camp deposit ($225 per child instead of the standard $450) PLUS a 15% discount on already reduced early bird rates. Due to limited availability, this offer ends this Sunday. Sign up now!
Best wishes for health and safety,
Eric and Teri Naftulin
Sign of the times with the coronavirus public health scare. We planned to exhibit our program this weekend at the March 14 and March 15 L.A. Camp Fairs at Los Feliz and UCLA. We were so looking forward to meeting you, but unfortunately the camp fairs have been cancelled. Our March 22 open house at Zuma Beach is still on tap to go on, so get your free tickets to the event today and we'll see you in Malibu March 22.
A number of things! And we think the best way to explain them is through several different blog posts over the next few weeks.
Our philosophy is this: Our counselors will always ENCOURAGE kids to try new activities and enjoy camp to the fullest. But we will never push or force a camper to do anything they're uncomfortable with. It's up to your child as to when and if they want to participate in the beach camp activities. But we will do our best to get them to try!
Camp safety is a top concern among parents when choosing a camp for their kids. And that's just how it should be!
We're parents ourselves, and even though our kids are past the age of going to camp, we did send them to camp every summer as they were growing up and always make sure whichever camp they attended had strict and airtight safety measures in place. We know you expect the same and here at Aloha Beach Camp, we are committed to delivering it.
We have been running Aloha Beach Camp since 1999 (that's 21 years!) and have a 100% safety record during that time. When we say "100% safety record," we mean nothing more than a minor scrape or bruise a kid would get anywhere.
For example, one time a girl scraped her knee on the sand and there have been occasional bee stings here and there over the years. That's about it, though.
We realize when choosing a summer camp, you need to consider where the camp takes place as much as anything else. Sometimes the camp's location contributes to the level of risk involved. To this extent, parents often think summer camp at the beach might be less safe than more traditional camps. You'll be glad to know that most of the risks you can think of are generally more perceived than actual. With the proper safety measures in place, beach camp can be just a safe as any other program.
Many L.A. locals listen to 104.3 MyFm's Valentine in the Morning radio show on their way to work. Hosted by Sean Valentine, this popular morning show is funny, entertaining and an all-around great way to pass the time on your way to work. It's a family show, too, so if you're listening on the radio when driving our kids to school you don't have to worry they'll hear something inappropriate. Listen to how Sean Valentine describes Aloha Beach Camp
Even though Aloha Beach Camp's one of the most sought-after summer day camps for kids in L.A., did you know we also have an overnight summer camp in Hawaii, too?
It's pretty cool! Kids from all over the world join every year for this program to enjoy surfing, hiking, zip lining, ocean kayaking, swimming with sea turtles, archery, site-seeing and many other amazing summer camp activities in Hawaii.
The cool thing about this is that's just like a traditional summer camp experience you already know, except it takes place in Hawaii!
Located on the beautiful north shore of Oahu at Camp Mokuleia, Our Hawaii camp only runs 1 week from August 3 to August 8 this summer. You can get a discount when signing up before March 1. Hope to see you at camp!
Aloha Beach Camp's Kahuna Camp Program is the Top Beach Day Camp for Kids and "Tweens" in Malibu and L.A.
If you have a child between 8 and 11 and want to nail down a summer day camp experience they'll look forward to every day, Aloha Beach Camp's Kahuna Camp program is where it's at.
Imagine a Los Angeles based day camp your son or daughter looks forward to every day rather than complain when it's time to go to camp. That's what Kahuna Camp promises -- a camp experience unlike any other where your child will come home from camp each day sandy, tired and happy and looking forward to all the fun days ahead.
Surfing instruction, boogie boarding lessons, jet skiing excursions and so much more await your child here.
Not only that, you can sign up for our Kahuna Camp program day-by-day according to a convenient summer schedule that works best for your busy family, not one that works best for us. Pick and choose your own camp schedule while sending your child to camp day-by-day whenever you want.
Every day at Kahuna Camp is loaded with over 200 safe and fun aquatic beach camp activities. And please don't worry if your camper hasn't done this kind of thing before. Everyone has to start somewhere, and our experienced camp counselors are trained to make sure your child enjoys our program at a pace most comfortable for them. Even non-swimmers are welcome at Aloha Beach Camp because the entire program's instructional and designed to be enjoyable for kids of every aquatic background.
Free transportation is available for your child, too! We have convenient pick up and drop off points all across greater Los Angeles and the Valley. When you sign up for camp, simply choose the bus stop meeting point nearest you on the appropriate spot on your child's camp registration form.
Don't miss Aloha Beach Camp's Kahuna Camp day camp program this summer. It's an epic camp experience for kids 8 to 11!
We always advise meeting the staff before you choose a summer camp. Accordingly, please make your plans to be with us at on of our upcoming live events. We'll be at the LA Camp Fairs and also have an open house planned for March 22 at Zuma Beach. All the activities are free for you and a great chance for us to get to know each other and share and discuss with you all the details you need to know about Aloha Beach Camp's 2020 summer camp program.
Every year we make a new summer fun video for the upcoming day camp season. Check out our 2020 summer fun video here.
