Monkey Business Camp

We started Monkey Business Camp to nurture the creativity and individuality of each child in a loving and magical environment. We develop programs to achieve a balance between structure and spontaneity, to provide for the varied needs and interests of campers, and to build a powerful, peaceful, fun-loving community. Our programs offer unique opportunities for kids to explore the natural world and to participate in a variety of fun, engaging activities. Our Summer Camp is held in Tilden Park and features fun weekly themes such as Pirate Week, Mad Science, Drama/Performing Arts, Outdoor Cooking, Circus Arts, and includes a swim day at Lake Anza each session. Winter Break, February Break, and Spring Break Camps are held near downtown Berkeley. Youth leadership opportunities are available for kids age 11-15. We are thrilled to be celebrating our 13th year!

Girls On The Go! Field Trip Camp is specifically designed to meet the emotional and developmental needs of girls ages 9 to 13. Our camp allows girls to explore their communities, play, bond, and learn, in an adventure-packed program. Traveling by public transportation, they practice independence and learn how to access the diversity of their community in this well-supervised program. Field trips include the Oakland Zoo, The Aquarium at the Bay, Oakland’s Fortune Cookie Factory, Ice Skating, Coit Tower, the birds of Telegraph Hill, North Beach walk, Oakland Botanical Gardens, boating at Lake Merritt, and going to Playland-Not-At-The-Beach in El Cerrito’s historic arcade.
