Summer Camp

Virtual Summer Camp – July 2020

Our virtual summer camp is designed for children aged 1 to 5 years and runs July 6 through July 31. We will explore a different theme each week — get ready to make solar systems, enjoy water fun, learn about butterflies and dinosaurs, and more. Camp is perfect for single children or for siblings to enjoy together! Circle time is bilingual English/Spanish.

Tuition is $650 for all four weeks including materials — no registration fee for Summer! (registration closed on June 22 and camp is fully booked; email cmatson@galoopclasses.com if interested on being added to our waitlist)

Here is what parents are saying about Galoop’s virtual programming: We couldn’t feel any luckier to have found Galoop! We have had the pleasure of watching our daughter thrive in this warm, nurturing community and Cecilia has done an incredible job of ensuring that feeling is not lost in her virtual program. Each week has a thoughtful theme, circle time is vibrant and interactive, and every activity is carefully planned, which goes a long way in helping us continue our daughter’s education and enrichment at home. As a true testament to how she has far exceeded expectations, Cecilia has even provided us with bags of supplies and video tutorials to help execute these amazing activities. Cecilia has also been an invaluable resource to us as parents, helping us tackle challenges and stay positive, providing us with other resources, and regularly checking in on how our family is doing. We can’t wait to get back to Galoop in person, but in the meantime this is the very best case scenario! – Ashley

Week 1: July 6 - 10

Dinosaurs:  Fossil sites, dinosaur stomps, dinosaur bones, and so much more!  Kids love dinosaurs and we’ll have fun learning about them through artwork, books, and lots of digging!

Week 2: July 13 - 17

Under the Sea:  Fish, whales, sharks, jellyfish, coral…if its under the sea, we’ll be exploring it this week.  Expect lots of water fun at home!

Week 3: July 20 - 24

Nature Science: insects, plants and more! From seed to plant, we’ll learn about the life-cycle of plants by doing some potting of our own.  We’ll also have nature scavenger hunts; hatch butterflies (optional);  make terrariums; dig for insects; make sun catchers; and more!  It’s all about our natural habitat this third week.

Week 4: July 27 - 31

Outer Space:  From making your own solar system to learning about stars, we’ll turn our gaze upwards this week.  Moonscapes, rocketships, planets…we have a week of outer space ending our summer!
