Every year we make a new summer fun video for the upcoming day camp season. Check out our 2020 summer fun video here.
Keeping kids safe, comfortable and having fun in the ocean is a staple of Aloha Beach Camp's program. We have 100% safety record and intend to keep it that way. One of the primary elements of our beach camp safety program is limiting how deep we allow kids to swim in the water. No child is permitted to go deeper than their waist with their feet firmly touching the ocean floor. As you can see from the photo above, kids can walk out plenty far from the sand and still remain at waist-depth in the ocean. This is one on the top reasons we've chosen Zuma Beach to run our program. Campers can go out pretty far in the water but the ocean doesn't get too deep.
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!
As we always say, we think your child will say Aloha Beach Camp's the best summer camp they've ever been to, otherwise you won't pay a dime. Where other camps say they're the best, we stand behind our pledge with a 100% money back guarantee.
Our 2020 summer day camp program is designed with your child's best interests and your busy family's schedule in mind. Our camp takes place at the best Los Angeles beaches, lakes and water parks for a well-rounded aquatic sports summer camp experience second to none. Your child will learn to surf, boogie board, jet ski and so much more with free transportation available for you each day.
Yes, your camper will love Aloha Beach Camp. But as a busy parent, you might love it even more. Why? First off, because we promise to deliver a camp experience for your child they will want to return to year after year. And also because our camp registration format allows you to send your child to camp day-by-day whenever you want, rather than being forced into rigid prearranged enrollment sessions that don't fit into your family's summer schedule. Here at Aloha, you can choose your child's own starting date, ending date and any days you want in between. It's like creating your own camp sessions, only better!
Please take a moment to learn more about Aloha Beach Camp's 2020 summer camp program and activities. And be sure to join us March 22 at Zuma Beach for an open house.
We can't wait to see you at beach camp this summer!
But that's not all. Free transportation is also provided for Pacific Palisades kids. If you're used to paying more for camp transportation, you'll be glad to know you don't have to do that any more!
Open House March 22
If you'd like to learn more about our program, join us at our next Open House on Sunday, March 22 at Zuma Beach. Our staff will be ready to meet you and show you everything you'd ever want to know about our upcoming 2020 summer camp program. See you soon!But we also offer jet skiing, boating, tubing every week, too! All this takes place at Zuma Beach and Castaic Lake where lifeguard-certified camp counselors facilitate an aquatic summer day camp experience for your child they will never forget.
Enrolling now for Summer 2020
Enrollment is now open for Aloha Beach Camp's 2020 summer camp program. Sign-ups are coming in fast. We're only a small camp with limited space availability, so if you want to sign up, we advise you to register sooner rather than later to be sure you avoid the waiting list. Registration information is available here.
If there's one thing you want to make sure of, it's that you get the best price when signing up for summer camp. Be sure you register for Aloha Beach Camp by Sunday, March 1 because that's when our Early Bird Discount expires. To lock-in your discount -- which is a savings of $10 per more per day over regular camp rates -- fill out this enrollment form and pay a $450 tuition deposit. That's it!
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!
