When shopping for the perfect gift, there are many things to consider. Is it personal? Does it coincide with the receiver’s personality and preferences? Is the gift worth the cost to you? Make it easy by purchasing a gift that will create a memory, like one of the many opportunities below! 

The City of Placerville’s Community Services Department offers an array of sports camps, dance classes, enrichment classes and more. If you’re looking for something to get your kids moving, sign them up for swim lessons, or football, soccer, baseball, basketball, volleyball, tennis and golf camps. 

Looking to get back in shape? Try Zumba, karate, Pilates, hand-to-hand combat, tai chi, yoga or table tennis classes, among others. Put a little spring in your step with dance classes for all ages and abilities—from creative dance for young children, to ballet for kids and adults, plus lyrical, belly dance and tap dance. Looking for a special gift for a friend or significant other? Register them for ballroom dance classes!

 Those seeking something that speaks to their creative side should check out the enrichment offerings. For children, there are craft classes, Spanish summer camps, and sewing; adults can choose from Thai cooking, fused glass jewelry making, dog training or legal seminars.
