Summertime fun

camp2When I was a kid, summers always seemed long and hot. I was often bored. Except the one week I went to camp or vacation bible school. I looked forward to that week every summer. I got to meet new kids that I wouldn’t have met otherwise.

Almost everything was outside, and I loved being outdoors among all the trees and the nearby river. I remember water balloon tosses when it got hot. And I loved collecting arrowheads for winning competitions and doing good deeds. Then I got to bring those home at the end of the week to show my mother.

As we were discussing summer plans, we brought up the idea of sending Emma to a camp this year. It would help expand her knowledge, give her some new experiences, and help prepare her for kindergarten. It might even help prepare us too. A full week where she can explore, learn, and be as independent as possible sounds like a fantastic experience.

Looking into week-long summer camps, we wanted something to keep our daughter active and engaged. We found Camp Galileo and thought it might be a good fit. Galileo offers both full and part-time programs for the pre-K and K group. There were several themes to choose from, including medieval adventures, African safari, and space odyssey. Emma had no trouble choosing a program, and is excited to head there this summer.

This post is part of a spon­sored cam­paign with Camp Galileo. I received one free week of camp for Emma to experience Galileo; however, all opinions are my own.

Thank you to Dana Brewer for the beautiful photo.
