History

Tocaloma was established in 1945 so that young people could enjoy instruction in a variety of activities which would encourage physical growth, develop values, and foster a positive self-image. Throughout the years, Tocaloma has operated schools and camps which have become the hallmark for children’s programs in Southern California.

Today, Tocaloma continues to provide the same dedicated staff and extensive programs which have been enjoyed by three generations. We hope your child will join us and become a part of our tradition and our future.

Transportation

Tocaloma offers transportation from the following areas: Studio City, Beverly Hills, Hancock Park, Westwood and Santa Monica.

Late model, air conditioned school buses offer a convenient and fun way to get your camper to and from camp. Each bus is equipped with seat belts and is driven by a professional bus driver while Tocaloma staff supervise and engage campers.

Our Staff

Fun, Friends & Great Activities

When Tocaloma was founded in 1945, there was one goal: to offer the finest day camp possible. In reaching for that goal, a more nurturing and challenging experience has evolved. One that allows for individual differences in ability and enjoyment and still remains true to values of fair play, adventure, and mutual respect and friendship.

More important than the beauty of our exclusive site and more valuable than our varied program is our fun and caring staff. We continually strive to provide enthusiastic, outgoing and mature staff that are passionate about promoting the success and happiness of each camper. Our staff are at least 18 years old and have been carefully screened and selected for character, enthusiasm, maturity, experience, and the ability to work with and understand children. Staff training is comprehensive and includes workshops in developmentally appropriate activities and instruction, facilitating friendships, role playing, conflict resolution techniques, group dynamics, risk management as well as camp policy and procedure. Staff evaluation and training continues throughout the summer to ensure that our staff continues to thrive and to provide your camper with a fun and memorable experience.

We hope you find Tocaloma.com to be a helpful resource in finding information about the summer experiences we offer. You can apply for enrollment or simply browse the site. Private tours of our beautiful 66 acre campsite are available by appointment.

Of course, we are available by email or phone to answer any questions you may have.

Whether your child is four or fourteen, Tocaloma’s wide variety of activities and caring staff can provide an opportunity for adventure, fun and learning. We invite your family to join ours for a summer of fun, friends and great activities.

Best Regards,

Tiffany Romero and Erica Carlin
