S-S-Summer camp in Alameda at Rhythmix Cultural Works

Like a good percentage of Alameda parents with school age kids, I send my kids to summer day camp. These are usually week-long sessions (though some are longer) and they come in all types, from zoo camp to gymnastic camp, art camp to science. Last week, my kids went to camp over at Rhythmix Cultural Works, on Blanding near the new Nob Hill. RCW has been open for quite a while, and I’m embarrassed to admit I’d never been there before last Monday when I dropped the kids off, lunch and water bottles in their backpacks. It turned out to be possibly the Best Camp Ever. In the mornings, they practiced Taiko (Japanese drumming) and Capoeira (a Brazilian dance/martial art), and in the afternoon they crafted elaborate bugs and their habitats. The vibe was good, the kids were happy, and they blossomed with all the music and art (even performing skits that the campers had crafted in their unstructured time at the showcase for parents on Friday afternoon). There’s still two sessions left this summer…and I’d highly recommend the experience.

    This is so wonderful to hear. The teachers we have at RCW are really special. They put so much of themselves into the kids, the classes, the camp. I have sent them your encouraging words. It means a lot to get this kind of feed back.
