East Bay Regional Parks Camps

Has anyone tried the week long East Bay Regional Parks "Parkin It" Day Camp?  Looking at the one in Miller Knox in Pt Richmond for my 7 year old.  Would be interested to see if others have had good experiences.

Thanks so much!

RE: East Bay Regional Parks Camps ()

I have sent my kids to Park'n It at Lake Temescal for the last few summers, and will send my younger child again this year.  The kids have fun, they're outside, and it's professionally and competently run.  The emphasis is on traditional camp activities like singing silly songs, arts & crafts, and engaging with nature (swimming, hiking, etc.). The presence of many "leaders in training" is nice, because it provides for a mixed-age group.  My only complaint is that the check-in line runs pretty long, especially the first morning. If you can live with that small wrinkle, then it is an incredible value, and I recommend it.
