Malibu Hotels Near Aloha Beach Camp and Zuma Beach

Traveling to Los Angeles with your kids this summer? Looking for a day camp while you're here? Need a recommendation for some nearby hotels and accommodations? We've got you covered!

As a summer day camp, most of the kids who attend Aloha Beach Camp live in Los Angeles because day camps are typically local programs.

At the same time, many (and we mean MANY!) kids from all over the world join us for camp each summer. Campers from Israel, Hawaii, Nebraska, New York, Russia, Finland, Japan, China, Spain, Mexico, Italy and just about anywhere else you can think of sign up for Aloha every year to enjoy the amazing L.A. weather and take part in our safe and fun beach camp activities for kids and teens.

In general, most of the kids from out-of-town are in L.A. on family vacations, or visiting family, or perhaps their parents are here on business and want their kids to experience a beach camp in L.A., so they sign them up for a few days (or longer) with us.

But the most common questions among parents visiting from out of town is, "where should we stay while we're in L.A.?"

And, "Are there any good hotels near Malibu or elsewhere in close proximity to Aloha Beach Camp?"

Well, you'll be glad to know there's many good hotels and other accommodation options near Aloha Beach Camp.

The areas we suggest looking are Calabasas, Malibu, Westlake Village, Thousand Oaks and Malibu.

Not only will you find many nice hotels in and around these areas, we even have bus stops close to them, too.

If you'll be traveling to Los Angeles this summer with your kids and you're looking for a fun summer camp but need a place to stay while you're here, we hope you'll consider Aloha Beach Camp and we hope this post has been helpful. For additional help, you can visit this Zuma Beach website which is a pretty good resource, too.

Is Your Child Beach Savvy?

Kids who sign up for Aloha Beach Camp do so for many reasons, but most commonly, parents tell us the top reason they send their kids to our camp is so we can help their kids become ocean-savvy.

So if want your child to become more proficient in the ocean and beach environment, consider Aloha Beach Camp this summer. We'll teach your child how to surf, boogie board, swim in the ocean and more. Your only regret is you'll wish you'd sent them to us sooner!

Create Your Own Camp Sessions at Aloha Beach Camp

When you ask parents to list their most preferable features in a summer camp, you might get several different answers since so many people have different opinions on what's important to them in a camp.

The first person you ask might tell you finding an affordable summer camp is their top priority. Someone else might be looking for a program close to home. Conversely, another family could be looking into sending their kids far away to camp, perhaps across the country or even further.

But even though many people have different opinions is what's important to them when choosing a summer program for their kids, there's one common criteria that seems to always come up no matter who you ask: Pretty much everyone wants easy, flexible and convenient summer camp enrollment that doesn't interfere with their other summer plans.

Families are busy, juggling all kinds of schedules. And from what we've seen and heard, they're flat-out sick and tired of trying to plan their summers around fixed camp sessions. They'd rather create their own camp sessions while sending their kids to camp when it's convenient for THEM, not when the camp says the have to.

Well, guess what? We totally agree with you. To our way of thinking, "flexible summer camp enrollment" means YOU tell us when you're coming to camp, NOT the other way around. And that's what you get when you sign up for Aloha Beach Camp. There are no prearranged camp sessions you need to conform to. You can send your child to camp day-by-day on any schedule you choose. It's self-directed summer camp enrollment, and it's yours all summer at Aloha Beach Camp. Enjoy!
