The City of Beverly Hills has rolled out a successful summer camp program, while following strict health and safety rules. Notable experiences include Camp Beverly Hills, which featured a spirited carnival theme for its first week. Campers and staff created exciting games, such as a basketball toss out of boxes and a trash bag and a bottle toss game out of recycled water bottles. The campers took turns participating in the games while wearing masks and social distancing.

At the Kids’ Yoga Retreat at Roxbury Park, Mary Montague led 15 students in small pod classes. Activities included yoga flows and poses, Pilates exercises, meditation and mindfulness tools, such as nature walks where they observed with their five senses. The students, ages 4-10 years old, “did a fantastic job with wearing their masks and keeping a social distance from each other,” Public Services Department Publicist Dana Beesen told the Courier.

She noted, “When L.A. County allowed summer camps to resume following all safety protocols, we started out slowly to ensure the safety of kids and instructors. We started with Camp Beverly Hills at La Cienega Park and Cheer 4 You Athletics, Brit West Soccer Camp at Roxbury on July 6 with small pod classes, and ensured everyone was wearing face coverings, practicing social distancing, and routine hand washing. We ended camps an hour early each day to allow for extensive cleaning and sanitizing of the areas.”

During successive weeks, the City introduced Catskills Theater West Camp at Greystone Mansion and Gardens, AK Soccer at La Cienega Park, the Yoga Retreat at Roxbury Park, Got Game Flag Football at La Cienega Park, Professor Egghead Science Camp and Animal Encounters at Roxbury Park. All followed the same safety protocols.

Space is still available for the Brit West soccer camp next week. Visit www.beverlyhills.org/summercamp to sign up. “We will be offering fall classes but have not rolled out the program yet and not sure how many will be online and in-person,” added Beesen.
