Q: Where are you located?
A: Tocaloma is conveniently located 1/4 mile west of the 405 freeway on Mulholland at the Berkeley Hall School.
Q: Do you offer a lunch service?
A: Yes, you have the option of ordering hot lunch through our catering service. Menus will be available in May.
Q: Do I need to fill out a separate application for each child?
A: Yes. We need a full and complete application for every camper. After you have completed and submitted the first application, the screen will display a message that the application has been successfully sent to our office. At this time, you can begin the additional application.
Q: What are the camp dates and hours?
A: Camp dates for Summer of 2018 are 6/18 to 8/17. (camp is closed on July 4th). Drop off is 8:30 am to 8:55 am. Camp begins at 9 am. Afternoon pick up is 3 to 4 pm.
Q: Do you offer a sibling discount?
A: We offer a 15% discount off the THIRD child in the family.
Q: Can I request that my child be grouped with a friend?
A: Yes. On the application there is a space to request one friend. Your request must be the same gender and age. They must also request your child. Making new friends is a life skill. We feel very strongly in creating groups that are balanced with campers from different schools, allowing for new friendships. If there are additional campers you would like to have your camper grouped with, you may list them under “Other Considerations/Limitations” on the online application for consideration.
Q: I just applied online and provided my credit card, what will be charged?
A: At the time of enrollment, a $500 deposit is required. You will receive a copy of your invoice by email. If you have applied before March 15th, your invoice will reflect the early tuition rate. You may either pay this discounted tuition in full by March 15th OR you may wait and pay regular rate by May 1st. 2018 Tuition Rates are here.
Q: Do you have a minimum enrollment?
A: Yes. While we’d LOVE to have your child join us all summer, we understand that isn’t always possible. Tocaloma’s minimum enrollments are:
2 weeks, 5 days/week
3 weeks, 4 days/week
4 weeks, 3 days/week.
While the weeks do not have to be consecutive, we do recommend that the first two be consecutive to allow your camper to get comfortable in his/her group.
Q: Do you have a brochure you can send me?
A: This website is our brochure! We have taken everything we used in our former brochure and made it instantly accessible online. If you have any further questions you can’t find here, or want to speak with a director, we welcome you to contact us.
Q: I’d like to see the camp. Do you offer tours?
A: We offer private tours on specific weekends from January through May. Please note that campers ages 4 to 7 will have the opportunity to see the camp and meet their counselor at their program’s Family Orientation which takes place the Saturday before camp begins. You can find tour dates here.
