At the Aloha Camps, we concern ourselves with finding an activity that fits the child, not a child that fits the activity. The health and safety of your son or daughter is our first priority. It goes hand-in-hand with learning and having fun.
The Aloha Camps are accredited by the American Camp Association (ACA). ACA Accreditation indicates professionals have reviewed the operation and have found it to be in compliance with nationally recognized standards.
You can expect the highest standard of safety and supervision at the Alohas. Kitchen, sanitation facilities, and water supplies meet all safety standards and are inspected annually by the State of Vermont.
All campers must be covered by a comprehensive health and accident policy. Health forms must be submitted annually for every camper and counselor.
In case of serious injury, parents will be notified immediately. The local EMT service is within minutes of our campuses, and the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center is 20 minutes away. The Aloha Camps’ physician is always on call. Each camp is staffed 24 hours a day with appropriate health personnel and our camp programs involve only normal levels of activity.
At Hive, we are committed to improving our already high standards for our programs and making each year better than the last. With this in mind, in 2018, we 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 the Aloha Camps, we feel strongly that we have an obligation to our camp community to do everything in our power to reduce these risks. This process includes ongoing tick population measurements, landscape modification, natural control methods, and more. Aloha Hive is proud to be one of the few camps nationally with an advanced public health standards certification by implementing this program. Learn more here.
Hive’s kitchen does not serve nuts, though we can’t promise that ingredients we use have been made in nut-free establishments.
