We are so excited to welcome campers and counselors back to camp this summer! Safety is our top priority—always—and we are taking extensive measures to create a self-contained community of healthy people for the entirety of our summer sessions. Parents and families play an essential role in supporting your own camper(s) and helping us create a safe summer community for all. Please see our COVID FAQ page for the latest information.

Below you will find information on packing, tuition payments, health forms, and travel options. Have additional questions? Email Karen Danforth for help with all your camp logistics. All the necessary camp forms are available in the Parent Portal.

Camp directors are also available to discuss your camper’s individual needs and transition to camp:

Aloha Foundation Clothing and Equipment

Packing Lists and Uniform Information – (2021 will be a transition year, where campers and counselors are permitted to wear items with the old logo at camp.)

 

UNIFORM PURCHASES: The ordering deadline through our vendor for summer 2021 has passed. Campers may purchase plain grey shirts and dark green fleeces or sweatshirts anywhere. Campers at Lanakila wear grey shorts, while campers at Aloha and Hive wear dark green shorts.

CAMP STORE: Aloha, Hive, and Lanakila campers will be provided a $50.00 Camp Store credit to use as needed during the summer. The store is for essentials only (supplies that may run out during camp, like toiletries, stamps, paper/envelopes, etc.), and we have limited choices available of each item (e.g. two kinds of shampoo, one kind of toothbrush in several colors, etc.). Each store also sells a few items from our packing lists like camp hats, water bottles, insect repellants, and bandanas. On those rare occasions when campers exceed the $50 store credit, an itemized invoice will be sent home to parents at the end of the summer.

To purchase camp trunks (recommended size: 32” x 18” x 13.5”), follow the links below for a discount at Everything Summer Camp. International campers may sign up to rent a trunk through the parent portal. The trunk rental includes a bedding package with sheets, blankets, a pillow, and towels and costs $40 for the summer. **Campers receiving financial aid may also sign up for a trunk and bedding rental package at no cost.

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.

Getting to Aloha Camps

Transportation  – 2021

As a COVID-19 precaution, we are asking all families to drop off and pick up their children by car, when possible. We will not be able to pick campers up from buses or trains or meet arriving flights at airports. The only option for independent travel TO camp is the NYC bus on June 23.

NYC CHARTERED BUS (available to camp on June 23 and back to NYC on August 11): Online reservations for the NYC bus have been closed for the season. Contact Karen Danforth to inquire about availability. The $100 bus fee (each way) will be added to your camper’s account and is due on May 1. **This fee is waived for campers receiving financial aid. The bus stop is on the north side of W. 62nd between Columbus and Amsterdam (Next to the Lincoln Center). The bus arrives for loading at 8:30 for departure at 9:00 am.

DROP OFF AT CAMP (June 23 or July 19): Each camp will have multiple drop-off zones on Opening Day, which will be staffed by a member of our health house team and camp staff. Families will be assigned a drop-off zone and a drop-off time and will leave their campers and luggage at the drop-off point. We expect drop-off to take about 20 minutes. Your assigned time and more details about what to expect at drop-off will be emailed to you.

PICK UP AT CAMP (July 17 or August 11): Each camp will have multiple pick-up zones on Closing Day. Families will be assigned a pick-up zone and a pick-up time. To request your preferred time, please fill out this form. Your camper and their luggage will be ready and waiting for you. Stay tuned for more details and timing!

We may be able to offer a few limited transportation options to campers whose parents are unable to pick them up at camp at the end of their session. Contact Karen Danforth to discuss your options.
