Summer camps for kids
Summer is still far, even if this year it seems winter has never arrived, but it’s already time to think about summer camps for our kids.
Many Europeans usually go back to their countries during summer (especially Italians can even stay there 2 months), but many parents have to work and don’t have many holidays.
Public schools close for about one month and a half during summer, private schools could have a different schedule (like my son’s school that is all year round open), but anyway children need to rest from academic activities. They need a pause from routine.
In Silicon Valley there are many summer camps offered. It’s even difficult to choose among them.
