The school year is winding down, and for parents like me, that means just one thing.
What are the kids going to do this summer?
Now is the time to start booking your summer camp plans, and if you’re a Bay Area parent I have a special offer for the highly regarded Galileo Innovation Camps For Kids.
When I look for summer programs, I’m not only trying to find somewhere for the boys to go so I can get some peace and quiet (although that helps, too). With all the budget cuts in public schools, summer camps are a chance for them to get the kind of creative learning in arts and science that they don’t always get during the academic year. Here’s what Galileo offers:
Camp Galileo, Pre-K to 5th grade
Art, science and outdoor activities for budding innovators. Here are the age groups:
- Nebulas: pre-K to K
- Stars: 1st and 2nd graders
- Supernovas: 3rd to 5th graders
Summer Quest, 5th to 8th grade
Customize your summer. Combine the weeklong majors that inspire your kids the most.
Each week of summer camp is a deep dive during which campers explore and express their own personal vision as part of a community of innovators.
Returning campers can explore something new or dive back into a major they love. Armed with a week’s worth of experience, campers return to familiar majors ready learn more sophisticated concepts and try more ambitious projects.
Whether the major is new or familiar, the opportunities for innovation are endless.
