Boating Activity Pictures

Everyone one loves pictures, and nothing tells a better story or shows how much fun we have at camp than an exciting photo or two. So we've decided to spend some time posting some of the best pictures of happy campers and fun activities we've taken over the years. Here's a couple photos of our boating activity, which takes place every Wednesday all summer at Castaic Lake. Campers love it!

Is the Summer Camp Jet Skiing Activity Safe?

Camp counselor and camper jet skiing at Aloha Beach Camp's Castaic Lake summer camp activity site.
Jet skiing's an activity every camper loves, but also has the potential to raise safety concerns for
parents. You don't need to worry though.

We've been running our jet skiing program at Castaic Lake for 19 years and never had a single issue. Campers and staff wear lifejackets, the counselors drive the jet skis, and the lake lifeguards and sheriffs are right beside us giving us safety tips and supervision so everyone stays safe and has fun

No Surfing Experience Necessary

When we talk to parents considering our camp, a common concern that comes up is what happens if their kids don't know how to surf or they're otherwise unfamiliar with the ocean activities we do?

Please don't worry.

Even if your child hasn't surfed, boogie boarded, jet skied, body surfed, or for that matter doesn't have any ocean experience at all, we'll make sure they're safe, have a blast, and learn how to do everything in a step-by-step manner according to a comfortable pace they'll enjoy.

Learning to surf, like all the ocean activities we offer, is purely instructional and the learning process is part of the fun.
