The Russian School of Berkeley is sponsoring a summer camp for children ages 5-15, August 9-27 (I believe it is all day Monday through Friday). Activities include Arts and Crafts (paper making, leather book binding, charcoal drawing, watercolor, clay projects, linocuts, a unique book project); Musical Theater (production of "Ivan Czarevich" by Yuliy Kim at the end of 3 weeks; Russian Language Studies (aspects of Russian history, Russian cultural specifics, basic Russian expressions); and Sport Activities (volleyball, badminton, swimming). Call 510-526-8892 for information. Address: 1798 Scenic Ave, Berkeley. The director of the Russian School is Yelena Glikman.
Children can enroll for one to three weeks. Fees for 1 week $180; 2 weeks $340; 3 weeks $450. Financial Aid is available. I met the director who said that the camp has recently been put together and, depending on who enrolls, could be offered in Russian or English. The camp sounds interesting, but my children are already committed to other activities, so I thought I would pass along information to others.
