Three years ago, I enrolled my two eldest grandchildren for a month at Galileo in Brentwood based on the camp's outstanding reputation in Northern California. What better endorsement can I give than this: We will be entering year four this summer and the kids (and now their little sister) can't wait--truly. This isn't just a "day camp"--it's an enriching, exciting experience that impacts the children's confidence and sense of accomplishment. AND, it's loads of fun. In this era of instant answers on Google, it is so refreshing to see the children innovate, explore and learn in such a vital, caring and enthusiastic environment. Galileo opens up new ways of thinking for the children. I've seen it in self-directed projects during the months between Galileo sessions: creative baby lock solutions to keep little sister out of the LEGOs, new life for every big brown box entering the house, etc. The management and on-site staff are well-trained, kid-focused and engaged in the Galileo philosophy and objectives. I hear that Ben is returning to St. Martin of Tours. He's a superb leader and listener. Many of the people with whom your children interact are experienced Galileo people--so they are not in the care of a staff members who are unfamiliar with the camp and what it is designed to bring--delight, innovation and self-confidence. It's a super place.
