Off to camp we go… this summer

OK, so that last post about camp? Where I said I was signing up the girls? Yeah, I got sidetracked and I didn’t. Then the weather turned nasty and I completely forgot that summer was just around the corner.

Guess what?

Summer is just around the corner.

I think I’ve decided that we’re going to take a whole lot of down-time this summer. Instead of a summer filled with plans, activities, and things to do, I want the girls to have a summer filled with bug catching, digging in dirt, and letting their imagination roam free.

How lucky for me that my procrastination is going to help them get lots of down-time?

Lucky for them I’m not the only slacker mom who’s taking her sweet time getting them signed up for fun stuff. I was able to sneak them into the Camp Galileo session I wanted them to attend.

Why a week of camp in the middle of a low key summer? Easy, even the most adventurous and imaginative kids need to have their imaginations fueled a bit. (Plus, I’m going out of town for part of that week and I’d rather think of them having fun and learning than moping and wishing I were home. Whatever. Details.)

The girls will be attending one of the Leonardo’s Apprentice weeks. I think it’s a perfect fit for Little L who spends her life asking “How is that made?” and C who loves nothing more than to create art out of… anything. (Yesterday she incorporated a doorstop in a diorama. Yes. A doorstop. It was the sun.)

I got them signed up with an easy phone call and experienced the most amazing customer service when I ran into some technical issues. If the camp staff is half as dedicated and enthusiastic as the office staff proved itself to be, the girls are going to have an amazing week which hopefully will fuel a whole summer of self-made fun!

Are you as much of a procrastinator as I am? GREAT NEWS. It’s not too late for you either. Check out the Camp Galileo openings and hop over to the Galileo Learning Facebook page to join in the pre-camp fun. See you there in just a few weeks!

My compensation for this post, the last one, and one to come is that my girls get to have fun at Camp Galileo for a week. We are all grateful… probably for very different, if equally valid, reasons.
