Rocketship Blasts Off!Austronaut Boy

Thanks to seven stalwart families, Habitot raised nearly $2,500 to refurbish and bring back the always-popular Rocketship and Mission Control exhibit which is sure to be enjoyed by 10,000 or more visitors.

It's here for just five months so don't delay! There are some new elements for those who remember the previous installation and brand new costumes and helmets. We're developing out-of-this-world activities for Outer Space Month in July, and a special space science speaker's series in June.

Donations are needed and welcome to support new exhibits at Habitot

 Berkeley Playhouse Summer Camps Introduce Tots to the World of Music TheaterBerkeley Playhouse logo

Come sing, dance and play “let’s pretend” – just like they do on stage! Berkeley Playhouse offers half-day summer camps (9 am – 12 pm, Monday – Friday) for music theater make-believers ages 3-5 at the Julia Morgan Center for the Arts.

Through creative play and story-telling, children develop social skills and friendships. Summer programs will be inspired by the adventures in the Berkeley Playhouse main stage production of Aladdin!
