Pleasanton man leads 'Campaign to Restore the Original Dream'

I was just telling my husband about this camp at Camp Loma Mar that was so much fun. I was in the fifth grade and we went with my class from Strandwood Elementary School in Pleasant Hill Ca. I remember how much fun we had with the camp songs and the tide pools. That was about 30 years ago. And now I live in Southern California with my family, and we are coming up in July to visit my parents-And I wanted to bring my kids to the tide pools. I just remember it being so much fun with all the nice camp councelors.
