If you have kids looking for things to do in Oakland and the Bay Area this summer, the Alexan Webster apartments are perfect. They’re ideally located with easy access to the downtown area and just a few blocks from Lake Merritt and all its summer activities. You may be lucky if you see the kids again before school starts.
Boating and Sailing Camps at Lake Merritt
Lake Merritt is the perfect training ground for future sailors. The Lake Merritt Boat Club summer camps are a fun summer activity for all ages. Several camps are available catering to various interests and skills. The explorer camps are a great way for kids to learn about basic boat safety and try out different boats. Sailing camps are organized based on skills, covering everything from basic sailing to advanced race tactics. The camps run in July and August each year.
Ballet and Jazz Classes
Every Saturday over the summer months, Petits Pas offers ballet and jazz classes. The classes are for the 5-7-year-old age group and are held at the Petits Pas studio in downtown San Francisco. These classes encourage kids to be creative and confident as they learn basic dance. As a result, children develop the skills needed to participate in the fall program.
Art and Drawing Classes
The Sweet Arts Kids Studio offers art and drawing classes in downtown San Francisco. The daily 90-minute-classes give kids the opportunity to experiment and get creative. A range of materials including watercolor, acrylic clay and chalk are available. Each session offers a student-to-teacher ratio of 5:1. This means your budding Picasso will get the attention they need to develop their art skills.
