In science class my daughter got to build her own suspension bridge (pictured above). She learned about basic bridge construction and coffer dams. I suspect she now knows more about bridges than many adults. One night she was telling me about how bridges are built in water.

Morgan also made a painting inspired by Wayne Thiebaud's work and the cutest Lombard Street collage while learning about artistic perspective. I was really impressed with all the projects. If you read my last post, I mentioned we had trouble finding all our artwork last week. This time all the artwork was neat and organized in one place and even had a little flyer explaining about the pieces. To the staff: thank you for listening to my suggestion!
One of the strengths of Camp Galileo is their open communication between parents. I had mentioned in my last post that at the end of the day I would receive a recap specific to my child. Besides this, each day I was given a handout that detailed the days activities and what to expect the next day. I really felt in the loop with the flyers and they helped keep me organized for themed days.
Overall we had anther great week of camp. My children are already looking forward to attending next year.
If you're interested in Camp Galileo, there's still time to sign up. Visit the main site to see what's available in your area. They also offer extended care from 8-9AM and 3- 6PM.
Camp Galileo provided a free week of camp for both my children. All opinions and thoughts are solely mine.
