counselors who return to Aloha each summer, and whose top priority is ensuring your camper's safety and fun

Camp Counselors Featured in the L.A. Times
The Los Angeles Times says we "set the bar high" when hiring
staff...and you will, too! Our counselors are chosen for their ability to
work with kids in a leadership capacity plus serve as positive role
models. Each camp counselor applicant must pass a rigorous
multi-phase interview process including a criminal background check.
Our counselors are typically 19 years old (at a minimum), trained
lifeguards and CPR and First Aid certified.

meet. Find out what it takes to work here and apply for a job today!
