The Aloha Foundation

The Aloha Foundation is a non-profit organization nestled in the Upper Valley of Vermont. We offer five summer camps, a year-round outdoor educational center, and other educational and recreational programs. Our mission is to inspire people of all ages to learn, explore, grow, and become their best selves. 

Our six main programs are: Aloha Camp (overnight summer camp for 8th-10th grade girls), Aloha Hive (overnight summer camp for 3rd-7th grade girls), Lanakila (overnight summer camp for 3rd-8th grade boys), Horizons (co-ed day camp for Pre-K-7th grade children), Ohana Family Camp (families and events) and the Hulbert Outdoor Center (outdoor education, professional conferences, school programs).

If you have questions about the application process, please email Human Resources.

Inclusion & Diversity

The Aloha Foundation believes a diverse community makes us stronger. We are inclusive and welcome staff, campers, and participants of all races, genders, and backgrounds. We aim to help people become their best selves by creating a community rooted in the values of trust, safety, and belonging.


We are hiring for the 2021 season! In addition to camp counselor positions, we have openings in our camp offices, health houses, kitchens, and on our housekeeping crew. 

All summer 2021 counselors and staff need to arrive at camp with proof they are fully vaccinated. Please complete the COVID Vaccine Status section in your Staff Account and upload your vaccine card. Please note that most COVID vaccines require two shots, administered several weeks apart. We are only able to accept vaccines that have been approved by the FDA or WHO (the current list is Moderna, Pfizer, Johnson & Johnson, Astra Zeneca Oxford, Serum Institute of India, and Sinopharm). We encourage you to do everything you can to get vaccinated before you come to camp. For questions or more information, contact

To submit a staff application, please send us your name and email address. A member of our team will create your user account and email you with further instructions. Emails are sent Monday through Friday during normal business hours and may take up to 24 hours. If you have any questions, please email
