Review for Hayward La Honda Music Camp, Union City, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This summer will be my eighth summer at La Honda music camp. Each year I look forward to that one week in the summer more than any other. Each year I tell myself that the next year cannot possibly be as fun as the last, and each year I prove myself wrong. La Honda has helped me to grow both musically and emotionally. Being surrounded by incredible musicians and getting to the opportunity to learn from them is only part of the experience. Soaking in the love of music that the campers and staff share is intoxicating. There have been times when I wanted to put music aside in favor of other things, but after one week at La Honda, I inevitably leave re-inspired to continue with music. One of the strengths of the camp is the focus on this atmosphere of shared music appreciation rather than creating a competitive environment. Even after I am too old to attend camp, I will always remember it as providing for some of the best friendships and best experiences of my youth.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the 7 years that I have attended the camp.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

make no changes.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the happiness it gives me and the skills I learn.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

incredibly talented and incredibly supportive.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

inspire I love of music in many fortunate children.

Ways to make it better...

camp was longer

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

attracting younger campers when so many schools have lost funding for music.

One thing I'd also say is that...
