Interesting summer camps in the Bay Area

This is part of our summer camp series. We're lucky that there are tons of summer camp options in the Bay Area. It's impossible for me to cover them all, and there are lots of great websites out there that do. But we can highlight some that look a little different! Please comment below on your favorite camps.

These camps offer after-care, but I didn't put in specifics for that, nor for price since there are so many options available.
