T.A. answers from San Francisco on February 24, 2008
My daughter attended zoo camp and loved it! It was a really neat learning experience for her and she really enjoyed getting "backstage" to see some of the animals. They have classes for ages 4 on up to (I think) teenagers. The classes for the little ones are all very age-specific and go by the grade the child is going to attend the following Fall. I'm sorry I don't have any other ideas in that area (I'm in Pacifica). Actually, if you don't mind a really short drive, Pacifica has some great classes and programs thru Parks and Rec. My daughter has taken a 'circus class', swimming, cooking and is going to take a ceramics class thru P&R this Spring. If SF doesn't have such a program, Pacifica would be a good alternative.

I'm a big advocate of the YMCA. Y-Camp Stonestown is great. My daughter has been going for the last 4 summers, plus she goes to Winter Camp as well as Spring Camp when we can (she goes to catholic school and the schedules of the catholic schools and the public schools aren't always the same, the YMCA goes w/ the public school schedule)

Camp Galileo is a great activity- scholarships are available too! My son loved it last summer & we're going again this summer.
