Camp Brainy Bunch at Pacific Boychoir Academy 

215 Ridgeway Avenue, Oakland CA 94611
Camp Brainy Bunch is now in Oakland! Centrally located right between Piedmont Ave and Broadway, we will be hosting programs at the quaint Pacific Boychoir Academy. With ample outdoor play areas and plenty of classroom space, we are thrilled to bring our fun and innovative curriculum to Oakland in 2019. The cherry on top - it’s just two blocks from the historic Fenton’s Creamery! 

Camp Director: Matt Takimoto

Matt spends the academic year as a 4th-grade teacher at Glenview Elementary School in Oakland Unified School District. Before receiving his MA in Education at UC Berkeley, Matt was a 2nd through 8th-grade music teacher at Raskob Learning Institute in Oakland. This summer, Matt is most looking forward to building upon his prior experience as a Camp Brainy Bunch instructor and diving deep into different subject areas - in particular, Extraordinary Engineers and Wonderful Writers!

Outside of school, Matt enjoys cooking, winning at trivia nights, reading young adult fiction in order to keep up with his students, and finding opportunities to spend the day outside.
