This post is brought to you by Galileo Innovation summer camps for kids

This time of year something happens in the psyches of moms everywhere.

Once Spring Break is over we know what is coming. We brace ourselves and hold on to our hats and glasses because it is one wild ride to the end of the school year. I am convinced time actually speeds up.

For real.

Given summer will be here in the blink of an eye, the ubiquitous planning and strategizing to get the kids registered for summer camps goes into full effect about now. Are you there yet?

Now I am sure you have your same ‘ole favorite tried-and-true camps you do every summer, which is great. But this summer I urge you to consider sending your kids to a totally NEW, totally INSPIRING, totally EDUCATIONAL (but not boring educational) summer camp. It’s a camp that will inspire and expand their creativity and minds, Galileo Innovation Camps, where kids’ wildest ideas come to life.

For real.

Galileo Innovation Summer Camps are designed for Pre-K through 8th grade kids with the goal to create and nourish a love for innovation. At Galileo, they believe the world needs innovators, and in the imaginations of children is where ideas begin.

You in? Yes?

Then you don’t want to miss out on this opportunity…Galileo is
in Orange County or Carlsbad to one of my readers!!! Details below. Keep on readin’…

Galileo Innovation Camps

Galileo Camps can be found throughout Los Angeles, Orange County, San Diego and the Bay Area (for any of our readers up north). With over 20+ locations in SoCal, you are sure to find a location near you. For my friends with tiny and tween oranges, the Galileo Camps in Orange County and close-by in Carlsbad can be found in:

Costa Mesa @ Mariners Christian School
Irvine @ Northwood Elementary School
Ladera Ranch @ Oso Grande Elementary School
Newport Beach @ Andersen Elementary School
Carlsbad @ Aviara Oaks Elementary School

All camps officially run 9am – 3p, but extended summer camp care is offered from 8a – 9a and from 3p-6p for those who need it. I know finding quality Orange County summer camps with extended care can be a challenge. Look no further!

What is Galileo All About?

Powerful things happen at Galileo that don’t happen at other camps.

In the midst of having crazy fun, the kids are also learning. Through hands-on exploration and a revolutionary innovation process inspired by Stanford, kids learn how to dream, create, invent, and design giving them self-confidence and an internal boldness to try new things.

They also learn how to fail. Not in a dispiriting way. Rather, they are taught to embrace their mistakes, use them to learn and improve, try again, as a result build the skills it takes to be a risk-taker and problem solver.  You know, the things that take grit! Here’s a peek at what you could expect to find at Galileo this summer…

Now that my kids are older I have learned that you have to plan out your summer activities early because many of the local OC summer camps and programs for kids start registration in the spring, which is just around the corner. To make summer planning easier, I wanted to share a special event going on this weekend!

Parenting OC  is hosting their 2013 Summer Opportunities Jamboree this Saturday, March 9th, 2013 from 10am – 3pm at The Next Level Sports Complex in Garden Grove, a new world-class 100,000 square foot multi-use athletic facility.

The annual event features over 70 exhibitors and gives families the opportunity to plan their family’s summer activities face-to-face with representatives from local outdoor OC summer camps, family travel destinations and performing arts programs.

Other attractions at the event include Parenting OC’s Cutest Kid Cover Contest, sports and fitness demonstrations and a family fun zone. Scheduled to appear are the Minions from the upcoming film Despicable Me 2 and TV’s newest dance star, seven-year-old Asia Monet Ray from Abby’s Ultimate Dance Competition.

Parking is $5; 100% will be donated to benefit Empty Benches, a nonprofit dedicated to youth sports involvement and a source of funding to athletes who otherwise would not be able to participate.

I hope you can check it out, enjoy the festivities and get some fun ideas to keep the kiddos entertained this summer!
