Meet Aloha Beach Camp's Counselors and Staff

Meet the Aloha Beach Camp Staff

Summer camps are only as good as their staffs. If the counselors don't make the program safe and fun for the
kids, what's the point? We're fortunate to have a strong, experienced management team and core group of camp
counselors who return to Aloha each summer, and whose top priority is ensuring your camper's
safety and fun
every day.

Summer Camp Owners...The Naftulin Family

Eric and Teri Naftulin founded Aloha Beach Camp in 1999. The husband and wife team
has over 60 years of combined experience operating summer camps in Los Angeles.
Eric manages the camp's business affairs and is on-site with the kids every day. Teri
runs the camp office and is active in the American Camp Association's (ACA)
accreditation process where she observes other camps to ensure they comply with
industry standards.

children who actively participate in the day-to-day operation of the
camp to ensure sure your child has the best summer camp experience

Twin brothers Josh and Noah, 18, are incoming Freshmen at Chico

State with a degree in child development. Sarah is one of our Keiki
Camp program directors, and Josh and Noah are two of Keiki Camp's
high-energy, enthusiastic camp counselors we're sure your kids will

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.
