One week of this camp has been provided to my child free of charge.
I am sharing information about it in advance.
My #1 is really an amazing child. He's everything - cute as a button and smart as a whip. He's got a good ear for music, loves science, loves to play and makes friends so easily. More than anything - he's got a HUGE heart and wants to help people solve their problems. Whether it's helping me match sock so I won't be sad (yes, I HATE matching socks!!!) to solving the water crisis in Africa, he just wants everyone to be taken care of.
My kids like to play in water. Honestly, they just plain waste it. They fill up bowls of water and just dump them over on the porch and do it all over again. Husband and I tried to explain to him that they shouldn't be so wasteful and that there are children in the world that don't even have enough water to drink, nonetheless dump out just for fun.
This got his little heart and brain thinking about what he could do for those kids. And this is the solution he came up with -
1 - Fill an airplane with water bottles
2 - Fly over Africa
3 - Dump the water bottles into a pre-dug pit
4 - The pit fills with water
5 - The people will come to the pit with their cups and drink the water
The simplest solution!
If only it was really this easy right? But he's a problem-solver. Which is why we think he will LOVE Galileo Camps!

We are so excited to have a chance to send #1 here! We haven't chose our week yet, but I'm hoping he and his friend will be able to attend African Safari Week, because right now he's god a big obsession with Big Cats - he wore an Africa Leopard shirt to school today!
