National Parks Summer Camp Theme Inspires Innovation for Kids Pre-K to 8th Grade



Our National Parks are collectively America's greatest playground, classroom and art studio. So it couldn't be more fun, educational and creatively inspiring that there's something special going on to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the National Park system. Camp Galileo, with more than 50 locations in Southern California, San Francisco Bay Area and Chicagoland, will be offering a National Park theme week as part of their innovative and educational offerings for the 2016 summer day camp session.
It's amazing what your kids will think of and create when you work with them at home using the Galileo Innovation Approach (GIA) which involves five key mindsets

1. Visionary - Identify goals and decide on a theme to build upon
2. Collaborative - Brainstorm and generate ideas together
3. Determined - Talk about the importance of being visionary as they start their projects
4. Courageous - Encourage kids to be fearless as they go through the creative process
5. Reflective - Evaluate what worked and trouble shoot to redesign better next time

These 5 concepts using the GIA are demonstrated in the four very different crafts my own children created when we sat down to innovate inspired by many National Parks we've visited as a family.

A palm tree painting on canvas...
A horse desert scene made with cardboard...
A leaf molded from a real one in ceramic...
A painted seashell pencil box...
These mind expanding, creative and fun activities are reflective of the sorts of projects and activities the Camp Galileo kids will experience this summer whether you're looking for an art camp, science camp or a combination of the two.
