What is available at the Camp Store? Your camper has a $50 credit at the Aloha, Hive, or Lanakila Camp Store. The “store” is for necessities only: toothpaste, stamps and other personal items. Campers will not require cash at any time. If your camper spends more than $50 at the Camp Store, you will receive an end-of-camp statement reflecting the balance owed. Lanakila campers will be given the option of getting a haircut. Store accounts will reflect this charge.
Do you accept uniform donations? We will gladly accept donations of outgrown camp uniforms for our clothing rental rooms. Costume room donations are welcome as well. Pack them in your camper’s trunk and mark them “costume donations.” We will also gladly accept book donations for our camp libraries.
When is Show Weekend? Please see our Show Weekend page for the full schedule and helpful tips.
Can I give my camper’s counselor a tip? The Aloha Foundation, consistent with the policies of the American Camp Association, does not permit counselors to accept gifts or gratuities. A personal note to your camper’s counselor is always very appreciated. A gift to The Aloha Foundation’s Annual Fund in honor of a particular counselor is another thoughtful alternative and highly prized by staff.
Do the camps provide photos of camp online during the summer? We want to share the summer with parents in a way that conveys the fun and activities campers experience from day to day. However, we do not try to photograph every camper every week, so cannot guarantee that you will see your son or daughter in the photo collections posted weekly online. We share this intention so that parents will have realistic expectations of our summer “albums.” To view camp photos, please visit our website. (Passwords are shared with parents via email. There is a link on our website to request a password reminder at alohafoundation.org/photos-and-more.)
How can campers stay in touch with each other after the summer ends? Every year, camp address lists are emailed to families after camp ends (usually in late August or early September) so that campers and counselors who wish to stay in touch during the year may do so.
