Camp Galileo: Adventures Down Under!

Last summer was the first time we sent Emma to a summer camp. I was more than a little nervous and apprehensive. She would be starting Kindergarten in the fall, and I knew camp would be a good time to experience a new environment.

My daughter picked the Space Odyssey program at Galileo. Although innovative, I was worried she wouldn’t enjoy the theme. Wow, was I wrong! She had an amazing time. It was really a summer of firsts for us. New environment, new friends, and she even experienced “hot” lunch for the first time. She enjoyed her experience so much, she ended up attending for another week as well. continued

Summertime with Camp Galileo

This summer, Emma spent two weeks at Camp Galileo. This was the first year we explored our options for a summer activity. With Emma starting Kindergarten this year, we wanted her to have a new experience that might help with the transition. I don’t think we could have had a better fit. Galileo was the perfect mix of education, play, and structure. She had a blast in the Space and Amusement Park camps.

Growing up glitterless

emmaI know glitterless isn’t a word to regular folks. But that phrase was defined in our home. My husband likes our home glitter-free. Normally, I’d agree. I don’t like finding glitter stuck to my eye lid, unless I put it there. It seems like it takes forever to get the glitter out of the carpet, off the dog, out of our hair. I get it, I do. However, we have a four year old. A very creative four year old who loves glitter.

Emma’s top craft of choice would be anything with paint, glue, paper cutting, or glitter. Doug feels these items are best utilized at school or camp. Which is why we signed Emma up for her first camp this summer. continued
