Create Your Own Camp Sessions - Sign up for Camp Just for the Days You Want or Need [Eric Naftulin Audio]

Forget the cookie cutter, "one-size-fits all" style of camp enrollment. We recognize every family’s schedule is different, so now you can enjoy Aloha Beach Camp’s customized day-by-day registration format where you tailor your child’s daily camp attendance schedule to your own individual needs however you see fit. Rather than requiring you to sign up for camp on a weekly basis or even longer, here at Aloha you can enroll your child for camp just for the individual days you want or need, and only pay for the days your child actually comes to camp. Listen to Camp Director Eric Naftulin explain it here.

Beverly Hills Bus Stop Update

As you may know, Aloha Beach Camp provides free transportation for all enrolled campers. A few years ago, we implemented a Beverly Hills bus stop at El Rodeo School.

This stop has grown in popularity and our enrollment from Beverly Hills kids has grown with it. Last summer, over 100 kids from Beverly Hills and the surrounding community attended our beach camp program.

The goal of our transportation program is to offer safe and convenient bus service for families while maintaining short routes and reliable schedules. We have found the El Rodeo location may not be the ideal location for a bus stop in terms of meeting these important objectives. This past summer, the morning bus route from El Rodeo to the beach was perfectly fine, but sometimes the afternoon route (from the beach to the school) took longer than planned.

Accordingly, we are considering relocating our Beverly Hills bus stop location to Horace Mann School instead. We believe this location will still be convenient for families,while simultaneously cutting down on the time kids spend on the bus.

We are in the process of assembling bus times and the specific meeting location at Horace Mann and will post the info soon.

We are committed to serving Beverly Hills families with outstanding (and free!) bus service in summer 2019 and beyond!

New Atwater Village, Burbank Bus Stops?

Potential New Bus Stops for Summer 2019 in Burbank and Atwater Village

Five yellow Aloha Beach Camp summer camp buses parked side-by-side in a parking lot.

Our goal is to offer as many different bus routes as possible so as many kids as possible can enjoy the Aloha Beach Camp experience.

Free transportation is provided from most areas of Los Angeles, but we're always open to expanding our bus coverage area.

For summer 2019, we're considering adding new bus stops in the Atwater Village and Burbank communities of Los Angeles. We will make a formal announcement as to any new bus stops we may be adding as we get closer to the summertime.
