This Summer, Plan on Destination Science!

FIZZ! BANG! POP! FLASH!

Last summer, I was teaching summer school in the mornings which left me scrambling for places to put my kid which I was in class, reading papers, and preparing. You might even remember this post about looking for good camps for my son.

This summer I’m in the classroom 6 hours a day–which means an average of 6 hours of prep a day! I’m not complaining because I will make a pile of money, but a good shovel full of it will get spent on keeping my kid happy and entertained while his dad and I are at work.

What to do with the kids in the summer is a challenge for families everywhere.

Fortunately for us, last summer our son spent a week at “Destination Science,” a camp full of fun experimentations and projects. At first, he was afraid. The other kids from his school either didn’t sign up, or signed up for a different session. So he didn’t know anyone in the room and, at 5, he was the youngest one there. Several mornings I had to sit out in the car outside his class until it was time for me to go to MY class. But he still wanted to do it. And he had a blast making robots and racing them. Each day he would bring home some crazy project or another and at the end of the week, he had lots of different science experiments to show us and a HUGE sense of accomplishment.

All year he’s been talking about going to Destination Science again this summer, and while it’s not as cheap as Las Posas at $125 from 6:30am-6:30pm, the program was much more interesting and engaging. Most days last summer it was a challenge to drag him to Las Posas; many tears were shed. But he LOVED LOVED LOVED Destination Science and looked forward with excitement to each day’s events.

So now we’re just trying to figure out how many weeks we can afford to send him (we’re thinking three) and work best in our schedule and which programs he would like because they all sound great to him! (Hot Tip: become a Destination Science facebook fan and get $20 off!)

With weeks like these, how could you decide?
