We Intend to Operate in 2021!
Aloha Friends and Families!
We hope you are healthy and safe and your school year is off to a great start. We know many of you are eager for an update regarding summer camp for 2021, particularly in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. Last summer was disappointing for all of us, but we finally have some good news to share with you!
We are excited to inform you we have been authorized by our host camp facility in Hawaii to operate our program, and are currently working with federal, state and local health officials to develop procedures and guidelines to safely operate our regular in-person Hawaii summer camp in 2021!
We missed our campers so very much when we were closed, and we know you were sad we were unable to open camp because of COVID-19. We can't wait to share with you the best camp experience of all time this coming summer!
Camp Might Look Different in 2021, But We're Looking Forward to Having Twice the Fun
For example, we will need to keep a little more distance between each other when we eat meals and participate in various activities. The same holds true for when we're in our cabins and other ways we congregate with each another.
But even though these protocols are important to prevent the spread of COVID-19, don't worry!
Everything you know and love about Aloha Beach Camp -- including our tight-knit camp community, making new friends, enjoying nighttime campfires, laughing all day and night, midnight dance parties, and almost everything else -- will continue as it always has. That means you can expect an awesome Hawaii summer camp experience that you will never forget!
Limited Space Available (Strict Capacity Restrictions!)
If you would like to reserve your child's space at camp, we encourage you to book your child's space now while we still have a few spots left.
You can reserve your space with a $475 deposit today. Your deposit is completely refundable if you change your mind or camp is unable to operate in 2021 for any reason. Just fill out this registration form to pay your deposit and reserve a spot while we still have space for your child for summer camp 2021.
Check Back Often for Updates
But we are happy to share with you everything we know right now, and we will certainly post new information here as it becomes available, so please make a point of returning here often.
Meanwhile, we hope to see your child at camp next summer. Reserve your spot today!
We got an email this morning from a prospective camp family who lives on Oahu. They wanted to know whether local Oahu families could join us at camp. The answer is, OF COURSE THEY CAN! :)
Remember, these numbers are just examples. Actual camper participante count varies every summer, but the above is a pretty accurate representation from year to year.
So if your child lives in Hawaii -- on Oahu or anywhere else -- they are more than welcome to join us in 2021 and beyond.
Sign up for camp today!
We hope you and your loved ones are safe and healthy and your child's school year is off to a great start. We wanted to post this update to keep you apprised of our status at camp.
As you may know, the COVID-19 pandemic prevented us from opening camp this year (2020). Sadly, we are still effectively closed because of COVID, and currently unable to accept any registrations for future programs.
We hope to reopen by January 1, 2021 and look forward to resuming many safe, fun and amazing camp experiences with your kids at camp next year, but the ability to reopen depends on many factors including getting clearance from our host camp in Hawaii and the numerous uncertainties caused by the coronavirus clearing up, among others.
If you would like to join our interest list for next summer or tentatively reserve your child's spot now, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. This will enable us to notify you when we are able to reopen and begin accepting registrations again. Again, we anticipate (hope!) this will be in January, but if we are able to reopen sooner or our target date changes for any reason we will let you know.
We are sad to announce that we received notification from our host camp in Hawaii (Camp Mokuliea) that they have decided to close their own programs and cancel all visiting groups this summer in light of Covid-19.
In turn, we will in turn need to cancel our Hawaii Summer Camp program from August 3 to 8 this summer.
Truth be told, we were planning on making this announcement anyway irrespective of Camp Mokuliea's decision as the health and safety of our campers, staff, and customer families will always be our first priority.
Sleepaway camps are in a difficult position right now, where flying in airplanes, sleeping in close quarters, and eating in dining halls with so many other people at once is not advisable in light of the global coronavirus pandemic. Accordingly, this announcement only pertains to our Hawaii sleepaway program, not our Los Angeles day camp, as the day camp program is still on track to operate this summer.
Please note we fully intend to operate our Hawaii camp program again next year. We hope to see you then. In the meantime, enrolled families can either:
We appreciate your trust in us and will miss your camper so very much this summer. We hope to see you again in summer 2021. Thank you for your trust and support. We hope you and your loved ones stay healthy and safe.

One of the things your child will enjoy the most about attending our Hawaii summer camp program this year is the opportunity to meet other kids from all over the world. Each year, campers from all over the United States and other countries such as Germany, China, Japan, Norway, Finland, France, and so many others come to Aloha Beach Camp to spend a week in Hawaii at camp with us.
Of course, this begs the question, how do the kids get to camp?
Campers can fly with us from LAX, or meet us in Hawaii Instead.
All of these options are used by many different campers each summer and we can easily accommodate whatever you'd like to do.
While your decision of how your child will get to camp doesn't need to be made now, the sooner you decide the better, simply for planning purposes.
Here's a little more info regarding the various transportation options.
We are happy to discuss the various options with you in more details if you have any questions, just let us know.
For teens looking for an amazing overnight summer camp experience, Aloha Beach Camp's Hawaii summer program is where it's at! All kinds of amazing activities are at your fingertips from kayaking to surfing to day trips to world famous Waikiki Beach.
Our program operates just one week this summer from August 5 -10, 2019 and space is limited to a small number of campers so it's important to reserve your spot soon before space at camp sells out.
