Boy, time flies when you are on vacation for three weeks in another country. We came back from Vietnam to unseasonably warm temps in Chicago. Before you know it, summer will be here and school will be out of session–and this also means summer camp season! When I consider options for summer programs for my kids, I look for those that offer highly rated, educational yet creative curriculums. Also very important to me is lots of quality outdoors time. Kids should be allowed to be kids, especially in the summertime!
While we were in Vietnam, I got a friendly camp registration reminder from Galileo, an educational company with several locations in Chicagoland that offers an innovative approach to the camp experience. There’s one location in Arlington Heights minutes from our house! Galileo values and builds curriculum that nurtures the creative confidence and innovative spirit within each child. PreK-5th graders explore art, science, engineering and the outdoors. 5th-8th graders take the lead in exploring their own interests. It checks off all my musts!
Because we will be traveling a bit in the summer, Roman won’t be going to camp this year but we are really excited to look ahead to next summer and to share Galileo’s offerings with Chicagoland readers who have young children. The Early Bird promotion is ending tomorrow on February 28. You can save $25-$50 per week (depending on location) until 2/28, and even more when you enroll in more weeks!
