Hayward La Honda Music Camp

The Hayward La-Honda Music Camp is organized to challenge students in a variety of creative pursuits and is devoted to the development of musicianship for students grades 6-12. This is accomplished through a program of study, concentrated rehearsal, performance, recreation and general camp life.”  That’s a quote from the music camp’s own web site (http://www.lahondamusiccamp.org/). My daughter, however, was not going to this music camp only for the music developmental purpose.  She wanted to go to have fun and to enjoy meeting new friends.  She was looking forward to the other  extra activities around camp, such as, horse back riding, zip lining, kayaking, etc.

The camp is held every summer at YMCA’s Camp Jones Gulch in La Honda, San Mateo County, California. Summer 2010 camp is their 49th. This music camp is founded and primarily organized by the Bowerman family. This wonderful organization is for non-profit. This year camp runs from July 24 through July 31. This one would be my daughter’s first time attendance.

On the 1st day of camp, we drove our daughter to the camp ground.  It took almost 1 hour and 30 minutes drive from our place to the camp ground, through narrow and winding mountain roads. We arrived at the camp by 10am in the morning.  About 50 other families/campers were already ahead of us.  Organization for this first day of camp was as smooth as it could be.  We were quickly allowed to go through the check in process, cabin assignments, auditions and orientation.  Parents are welcomed to stay all the way until just before orientation begins.  We suspected there were about, possibly, 200-250 kids participating this year.  We brought our own lunch but for those families who didn’t, the camp organizer served lunch (hamburgers, chips, etc) for minimal cost.  We really enjoyed the first day activities and stayed till about 2:30pm.  Enjoy our album of pictures taken during registration/check-in day.
