Hermosa Beach camp teaches kids how a city runs
For the youngster looking to head to the White House one day or create more sustainable energy sources, Hermosa Beach has a summer camp.
Camp “How do I want Hermosa Beach to look 15 years from now?” teaches kids everything from city planning to how to create a solar power grid in Hermosa Beach. Speakers at the week-long camp will include city manager Tom Bakaly and members of the Hermosa Beach Historical Society.
Gila Katz, a rabbi and executive director of Kleine Chaplaincy Service, said she started the camp to get kids involved in their community.
