Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What are the Aloha Foundation’s six core camps and programs?

Our six core programs are: our three overnight summer camps (Hive, Aloha, and Lanakila), our day camp (Horizons), our family camp (Ohana), and our year-round educational center (Hulbert). We offer many other customized programs for students, adults, and people of all ages. Our beautiful Vermont campuses are also sought-after venues for weddings, reunions, and other gatherings.

How are Aloha Foundation programs different from other similar camps and programs?

All of our programs are accredited by the American Camp Association (ACA), which means we participate voluntarily in an ongoing rigorous evaluation process and must meet up to 300 standards of quality camps. We have an unusually low camper-to-counselor ratio (2 campers for every counselor) that allows us to get to know each child and personalize support to each individual. Our staff are highly qualified and dedicated – many are educators, college students, and others bringing unique skills and backgrounds to their roles. Read more about the Aloha Difference.

What kind of community will I find if I work at the Aloha Foundation?

We strive to ensure each person is valued for who they are and what they bring to the community. This means creating environments that invite people not simply to “fit in” but to feel a deep sense of belonging. For more, visit our Equity & Community page.

What are the age requirements to work in Aloha Foundation programs?

Most staff at our camps & programs are adults 18 and over with the following exceptions:

  • Horizons counselors are 10th grade graduates or older.
  • Kitchen assistants at Horizons, Hulbert, and Ohana are 16 years old and older.
