The Aloha Foundation leadership team is working closely with the State of Vermont, local and national camping associations, and our medical consultant and COVID task force to finalize our operating plans while maintaining the flexibility we need to adapt in this rapidly changing situation. We expect to be able to provide you with as many particulars as possible next month (mid-late March). This page will be updated throughout the winter and spring as more information becomes available.
Have questions? Email Karen Danforth for help with all your camp logistics.
Camp directors are also available to discuss your camper’s individual needs and transition to camp:
General Information, Aloha Foundation Policies, and Important Camp Updates
Post-Camp Contact Information (If you would like to request contact information for a member of our camp communities, please complete this form.)
Hive Horseback Riding: Due to COVID restrictions, we will not be offering horseback riding at Hive in 2021.
Packing Lists and Uniform Information (YLP info coming soon!)
UNIFORM PURCHASES: Most items from the packing lists may be purchased from any vendor but our online store is the only place to purchase uniform items with the camp logos. (2021 will be a transition year, where campers and counselors are permitted to wear items with the old logo at camp.)
UNIFORM RENTALS: We offer a uniform rental package that helps keep down the cost of uniforms (especially since kids grow of out clothing so fast!). More information will be posted here in mid-March and signups will be available in the parent portal.
Health Forms & Information – 2021
Health forms will be available in your Parent Portal in mid-March. Forms are due May 1.
A healthy camp is a happy camp. Here are some general reminders and tips from our camp nurses.
Vaccination policy as of 1/1/2021 (our policy is based on VT requirements for schools and may change if VT requirements change)
Ivy Oaks Analytics Certification for Tick, Mosquito, and Poison Ivy Control
(Click on the link and scroll to view each of the one-page plans for Aloha, Lanakila, and Hive.)
We are committed to improving our already high program standards and have partnered with Ivy Oaks Analytics, a public health company that works with over 100 summer camps and specializes in the control of ticks, mosquitoes, and poison ivy. Although these have never been a major issue at our camps, we feel strongly that we have an obligation to do everything in our power to reduce these risks.
Transportation and Luggage Information – 2021
We typically offer a chartered bus from/to NYC on Opening and Closing days, as well as chaperoned transportation for campers from/to local airports. We are unable to transport parents. Transportation options for the summer of 2021 are unknown at this time, as we wait for guidance from Vermont regarding quarantine rules. We recommend that you do not book flights or hotels unless the fees are refundable. Contact Karen Danforth with questions.
