Camp Harold Erdman Beach

Camp on Oahu's Northern Shore

Nestled on Oahu's northwestern shore, Camp Harold Erdman Beach, named after Harold R. Erdman (1905-1931), offers a scenic stretch of sandy coastline extending from Farrington Highway eastward to the YMCA camp. Established in 1926, the YMCA leased this beachfront location from Dillingham, crafting a versatile camp used year-round for retreats, workshops, and children's summer camps.

While the west side of the beach is rocky, the northern section becomes even more rugged. Proximity to the YMCA camp provides a less rocky entry point to the inviting waters. Though the sea can be turbulent in winter, the beach boasts picturesque views and is adorned with structures from the TV series Lost, attracting photography enthusiasts.

Camp Harold Erdman Beach lacks facilities, yet its sandy expanse beckons surfers, anglers, and water sports enthusiasts. The beautiful beach is perfect for games, picnics, and sunbathing, creating an ideal haven for various recreational activities amid Oahu's natural beauty.
