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.

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.
