  • NorCal Youth Football Camp
    The experienced coaches at Norcal Youth Football Camps teach players of all skill levels ages 7–14 to safely maximize their potential on and off the field. Entrust a fledgling fullback or young sacking sensation to camp director Ken Peralta and his perpetually Gatorade-soaked coaching staff for four days as they mold raw talent into finely tuned wide receivers, linebackers, and linemen. The first half of the camp, from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., involves warm-ups and a defensive clinic before campers break for a half hour lunch. Lunch is followed by offensive clinics, games, and an autograph-perfecting tutorial to round out the day, which concludes at 2 p.m.

  • Habitot Children’s Museum
    A group of teachers and parents founded Habitot Children's Museum in 1998 with one specific mission in mind: to foster children up to 6 years old by encouraging their creativity and natural curiosity. Today, the 4,000-square-foot museum backs up this mission with research?gleaned from studies by scientists, psychologists, and educators?positing that healthy play spurs social skills, creative thinking, and problem solving, laying the foundation for kids to succeed later in life and imprison boogeymen in their booby-trapped closet tomorrow. At Habitot, kids find such opportunities at small-scale exhibits and themed play areas throughout the museum. Aspiring firefighters steer a small-scale truck, race through a pretend burning building, and maneuver the hose and nozzle from a fire hydrant, all while donning coats, boots, and helmets. Young explorers press buttons, turn dials, and issue commands for pretend space launches inside a 13-foot model rocket ship or navigate a vertical floor-to-ceiling maze designed to mimic worm tunnels. At the waterworks table and pumping station, young engineers manipulate water using buckets, funnels, waterwheels, and pitchers to help them understand H2O?s unique properties, such as how it keeps boats afloat on the arms of a thousand mermen. (At different times throughout the year, the staff transforms this area with a different theme; at times it?s been a car wash, a marine-science lab, or the racing grounds for a rubber-ducky regatta.) Visitors can tap into their inner Van Goghs at the art studio, where they play with soft clays and go nuts on a paintable wall. Habitot also hosts year-round children's camps with themes such as beaches, transportation, space, castles, and science.

  • Amphora Nueva
    More than 50 stainless steel Italian fusti containers line the walls at Amphora Lafayette, ready to dispense samples and full bottles of aged balsamic vinegar and single-varietal, extra-virgin olive oil harvested from farms in both hemispheres. The shop?s globe-spanning selection process isn?t just for variety?it also ensures freshness year-round, in accordance with the old saying ?It?s always olive-oil season somewhere.? The curators of this bounty select Italian white and dark balsamic vinegar as well as unique specialty oils, including roasted butternut squash, pumpkin and Italian truffle. Once they?ve added them to the casks, they post harvest dates, acidity levels, and polyphenol counts for each extra-virgin olive oil to give an idea of its antioxidant content and flavor strength. Each staff member touts a comprehensive understanding of the chemistry and uses of olive oil and vinegar, always happy to share recipe ideas to jazz up everyday dinners or science fair volcanoes. They?ll also help put together gift sets and wrap any bottle for free. Beneath its high ceilings, the atmosphere harkens back to far more ancient times, with a marble tasting counter and oil containers balanced atop the rough clay of the giant, authentic amphorae that give the company its name. Guests stop in not just to do some shopping but to take in a laidback learning experience?the San Francisco Chronicle found a visit to the shop ?as much fun as it is educational,? and manager Nate Bradley reported to Diablo Magazine that they?ve occasionally ?had people spend two hours in here just exploring.?
