    Thanks Oze_kid, Arts class is on my list too.
    mushi, you can check out their website
    Welcome to the Science Workshop
    Their summer classes sound quite fun to me and my kids are interested in joining too.
    I think I'm going to let my kids join one or two weeks there. Let's give them a try.

    Thanks Mushi,
    My kids joined Children's Technology Workshop before. Wanna let them try something new. Actually I've enrolled one of my older kids to Science Workshop's Tech class, something like computer game design...
    BTW, they have 20% off early bird discount, which allow me to saved a lot.

    My daughter will start playing Rugby in July...it's a popular sports now!

    After weeks of research, and a matrix chart involving everything from price to amount of time children are occupied, to travel time between locations, we've decided on summer activities for our children (7 and 9).
    I had a hard time finding a good listing, so thought I'd post my notes. Sorry, you'll have to google the exact addresses, as I'm not THAT helpful!

    Treasure Island Surf Camp- surfing
    Children's Technology Workshop- computer- related stuff- game design, animation, robotics
    ESF educational solutions- sports camps and sports clinics
    Faust international- theatre and creative writing
    Chameleon workshop- visual arts/ arts and crafts
    Kid's gallery creative arts- performing and visual arts
    City Plaza Ice Palace- ice skating
    South China Athletic Association also seems to have classes and such, but I can't figure out what language they teach in, and haven't had the energy to call.
    YWCA- seems to have classes/ camps, but I can never find anything on their website (again, the energy problem- I know, pathetic)

    thelist.com has a good listing of all sorts of providers (under family, sports, classes)
