Summer Camps & School Breaks >
Hello, we are new to having to figure out the whole summer
activity schdule. I looked in the archives, and didn't see any
gymnastics camps. There must be some that I probably missed.
(That's a lot of camps!) Any suggestions? My daughter has not
taken any gymnastics classes yet.
I have the perfect camp for your child: Gymnastics camp at
El Cerrito Community Center
, on Moeser. They have week-long morning
camps (9-12:30) for this age group, and no prior experience is
required. I believe they offer this most weeks of the summer,
but you'll have to check. My daughter did it last year and will
go again this year, and she had a blast. Check out the website
for the City of El Cerrito's rec program and search around until
you find the info, or go directly to the Community Center and
Head over Heels
in Emeryville offers classes for all levels and
will have summer camp, too. They do not have summer schedule
out yet, though. Their website is www.hohgymnastics.com
Also Golden Bears Gymnastics
offers summer camp. Their
schedule is already out on their web site.

Look at Kids In Motion
on Piedmont Ave. tel: 601-8424. My
daughter (also 6 yrs) is in her 2nd session there, taking after
school classes. She loves it, and we'll be doing a week of 1/2
day camp there this summer. She has also taken lessons (but
never a camp) at Head Over Heels; she enjoyed that as well, but
it is a much bigger facility and can be daunting for a novice.
I've found the staff at Kids In Motion to be very nurturing,
attentive and respectful of different abilities. They also offer
full day camps, but the latter part of the day is often spent
off-site (parks, etc.) Good luck! We're in the same boat, trying
to fill up a summer for the first time ever...
