Release your kids’ inner innovator at Galileo Summer Camps

While it’s their 19th

summer of running awardwinning

camps in the San

Francisco Bay area, they’re

thrilled to be heading into

their fifth year in the Chicagoland

area. Galileo

engages every kid with an

engaging mix of handson

learning and summer

fun. Supported by the

boundless energy of the

best staff around, campers

from Pre-K through 10th

grade unlock their inner

design-thinker, learning to

fearlessly try new things

and persist in the face of

challenges—all at your

neighborhood school.

Fueled by a process inspired

by the Stanford

d.school, Galileo instructors

unlock the innovation skills

campers need to thrive. The

heart of Galileo beats inside

our passionate people who

nurture and inspire campers

every day. They seek out

the best of the best through

our meticulous screening

whom return each and every

year. Galileo has been the

winner of 37 “best camp”

awards and 96 percent of

parents would recommend

Galileo to a friend.

“Not only is our son

gaining incredibly valuable

skills in risk-taking, grit,

collaboration and innovation

but he comes home every

single day with a huge

smile on his face and so

much to share! Thank you!”

said Betsy M. of Chicago.

of nature this summer at Glenview

Park District camps. Journey through our

camp brochure which offers something

for every child age 3-17 with the perfect

combination of fun, friendship, adventure

other games on special theme days like

best that summer offers like swimming,

sports, arts and crafts, theatre, dance,

Minecraft, claymation, outdoor games

and farming.

Glenview Park District staff provide

an environment that encourages kids to

step out of their comfort zone and build

self-esteem. After the eight-week session

ends on July 31, the fun keeps going for

one more week with Summer Extension

Camp. Seven to 12-year-olds had this option

last year, but this year, we are opening

it up to younger residents. It’s now

available for children ages 5-12 with optional

before and after care.

Another new camp this year is Camp

Glenview at Crowley Park for ages 11-14.

It includes several field trips each week

throughout the summer. Although the duration

of camp is eight weeks, participants

can sign up week to week. So, you pick

the weeks you want to attend.

We are entering our third year of Summer

Enrichment Programs in partnership

with Glenview School District 34. These

talented teachers are excited as ever to offer

classes at Attea Middle School including

Math Madness, Hooked on Crochet,

Tabletop Board Gaming, Safety City, Chess

Clinic and Higher Level Basketball Skills.

Junior Paddle and Sports for a Lifetime.

The Glenview Park District offers flexibility.

Sign up for full or half day camps

ranging from two to five days a week. We

also have an “in-between” option for parents

who say, “My child isn’t quite ready

for full day, but could handle more than a

half-day camp.” The Young Adventurers

Camp for 5-6 year olds runs from 9 a.m.-

2 p.m. They experience field trips once a

week and will not visit the outdoor pools.

We want to remind parents that early

bird registration is the best way to go. Not

only are the fees reduced, but families can

also register with a deposit and pay in a

series of installments. Those who register

after March 15 must pay the regular fee

and pay in full at time of registration.

So, put down the technology and experience

summer camp at the Glenview

Park District. Sign up today and save.

Countryside Day School offers

‘awe-inspiring’ camp experience

Countryside Day

School, a renowned institution

in Northbrook for

more than 50 years, continues

to fill a niche in the

educational market by providing

students 16 months

through eighth grade with

an unique learning experience

that emphasizes not

only rigorous academic

studies but also the development

of critical character

skills essential for success

not just in school, but

more importantly in life.

Countryside is committed

to working in partnership

with parents to help young

people become more than

great students but also exceptional

adults.

Summer can be an excellent

time to find out

more about this world

class school. Camps are

offered for students 3–12

years old at two-week intervals

beginning June 15

and are taught by Countryside’s

highly experienced

and dedicated faculty.

Camps for children 3–6

years blend classroom experience

with themes like

the science of cooking,

study of safari animals, or

fundamental reading intensive

with outdoor play

and daily swimming in

their backyard pool.

For students 6–12 years

old, camp themes including

writing and performing

a children’s opera, Master

Chef Junior, coding and

gaming with Code Ninjas

in Glenview, and Pinewood

Derby — also with

outdoor play and swimming.

These programs are

all small group experiences,

not mixed in with

hundreds of campers.

Faculty at Countryside

understand education in a

broader and deeper context

than conventional schools.

They see school as an internship

to adulthood in

which students develop a

strong sense of agency and

empathy. Countryside students

feel a deep responsibility

to make a contribution.

This is accomplished

in classes that are “microsocieties”

designed to emulate

real life, with mixed

ages, the expectation to

take initiative, permission

to follow interests which

develops deep concentration

and an intrinsic love

of learning, and room to

learn that failing is necessary

in order to accomplish

great things.

This great work is

also accomplished with

uniquely strong one-to-one

student-teacher relationships

where teachers do

more than offer academic

content but also serve as

mentors to their students.

Teachers’ knowledge of

each individual student is

one of the most treasured

aspects of the Countryside

experience by both

students and parents alike.

It is also what makes the

role of teaching so inspiring

that Countryside Day

enjoys very little teacher

turnover.

The final piece of the

Countryside success strategy

is a close working relationship

with parents in

which faculty share observations

of their students,

seek information from

parents about what they

see at home, and make

recommendations regarding

parenting based on the

expert, collective experience

of master teachers.

The CDS faculty is keenly

aware of the changes in

culture that are impacting

children and families and

how these changes are affecting

the development of

young people.

Countryside’s website,

countrysideday.org, is a

great place to start your

research, but families say,

without exception, that

it is a visit to the classrooms

themselves that reveal

the unparalleled and

awe-inspiring educational

experience. Parents are

encouraged to schedule a

personalized tour anytime.

Kids become explorers and

creators at Noggin Builders camps

How do you build a

dunk tank? What can

cooking teach us about

chemistry? What kinds of

challenges would you create

if you made an escape

room? These are just a

few of the questions kids

explore in Noggin Builders

camps, where they

dive into different STEMrelated

themes each week

and follow their curiosity

along new pathways.

At Noggin Builders, we

have a blast creating and

experimenting in classes

all year round—but summer

is the time to really

dig in and have fun. Kids

collaborate with each other

on projects, and new

friendships are forged

while they’re inventing

and learning. There’s

no better way to sharpen

problem-solving and creative

thinking skills while

school’s out.

Whether your kids are

in preschool, elementary

school, or middle school,

Noggin Builders has a

place for them to explore

and grow this summer.

Pre-K

Curious kids ages 3 to

5 years find learning opportunities

everywhere

with fun, hands-on STEM

activities. Young campers

will explore how science

intersects with other subjects,

from Da Vinci’s art

to Dr. Seuss to dinosaurs.

Pre-K camps run by the

week from May 26 to Aug.

28, with 3, 4, or 5-day per

week options available (9

a.m.-12 p.m.).

Entering grades K-2

Campers explore many

different areas of STEM

with weekly themes including

Engineering through

Time, Jungle Trek, Go

Green Science, Junior Gadget

Design, LEGO Adventures

and more. Camps run

Monday through Friday, by

the week, from June 8 to

Aug. 14. Half-day (9 a.m.-12

p.m.) and full-day (9 a.m.-4

p.m.) options are available.

Entering grades 3-5

Campers enhance their

STEM skills and creative

problem solving as they use

their innovation in Crazy

Contraptions, Cool Chemistry,

DIY Circuits, Escape

Room Engineers, Science

in the Kitchen and Camp

Invention. Camps run

Monday through Friday, by

the week, from June 8 to

Aug. 14, 9 a.m.-4 p.m.

Entering grades 6-8

Turn middle-schoolers’

ingenuity into action at

Maker Camp, where kids

use tools, circuits and other

equipment to design and

build their own creations.

Maker Camps run in

2-week, Monday through

Friday sessions that start

June 8, July 6 and Aug. 3,

9 a.m.-4 p.m.

All K-8 camps provide an

It’s time to rock with Glenbrook’s School of Rock

Get in ahead of the rush to

secure your spot at School of

Rock — Glenbrook, opening

spring 2020. School of

Rock is the world’s leading

performance-based music

school, dedicated to helping

students of all ages and levels

reach their potential both

on and off stage.

We teach drums, guitar,

bass, keyboards, voice and

develop songwriters. Our

students attend both private

lessons and group rehearsals.

The team dynamic creates

a supportive, inclusive

and motivating environment

where kids feel inspired

to excel. We have

programs for ages 4 to 99

that will challenge and inspire

every step of the way!

As we like to say, we put on

shows to teach music. We

do not teach music to put on

shows.

School of Rock — Glenbrook

is brought to you by

the team that owns and operates

the company’s highest-performing

school in

Oak Park.

Summer Camp is a great

introduction to the School

of Rock method and community.

Our camps are

highly immersive and insanely

fun. We offer our full

slate of regular programming

and special workshops

all year long, but

summer also means camp

time. Here is what is on the

slate at School of Rock —

Glenbrook for 2020:

Rock ‘N’ Roll Boot Camp

(June 15-19, July 27-31)

Come in with a choice

of instrument and we will

get you started learning the

basics and actually playing

songs with others right

away. No experience necessary

— all it takes is the

desire to rock. Rock ‘n’ Roll

make-overs and a photoshoot

are included. Open to

voice, keys, guitar, bass and

drums. This session culminates

in a gig at our in-house

venue.

Beginner, all instruments,

ages 8 to 13, full day: 9

a.m.-3 p.m.

Rock Rookies Boot Camp

(July 6-10)

Rookies is an early music

learner’s program where

students will learn songs by

bands like Queen and Imagine

Dragons to gain fundamental

instrument learning

on appropriately-sized

gear, and learn the basics of

ear training, rhythm, pitch,

song structure, teamwork

and close listening. We use

a house backline of guitars,

bass, drums, keyboards, and

mics so instrument ownership

is not necessary. This

session culminates in a

showcase for families.

Beginner, all instruments,

ages 6 and 7, half day: 9

a.m.-12 p.m.

With the Beatles! Camp

(July 13-17)

Do you love everything

about John, Paul, George,

and Ringo? So do we. Our

song selection will be customized

to the playing level

of the students and will be

drawn from all of the Beatles’

albums. Ear Training

will be covered and learning

how to build a chord

with voices. We will provide

a great introduction to

the melodies, structure, and

musicianship that made up

this very special band. This

session culminates in a gig

at our in-house venue.

Advanced beginner and

up (please ask), ages 10 and

up, full day: 9 a.m.-3 p.m.

Green Day (Aug. 10-14)

In honor of this longtime

band that has carried

the punk torch for new generations,

we have designed

a camp that will not only

satisfy your urge to play

hard, fast, melodic poppunk

songs but also to unpack

the band’s approach

to songwriting. Understand

what inspires them, drives

their music and keeps their

songs fresh and relevant.

This session culminates in

a performance at our inhouse

venue.

Advanced beginner and

up (please ask), ages 10 and

Please see rock, 20

Gow offers rich opportunities for dyslexic students

The Gow School is a college-prep

boarding school

for students, grades 6-12,

with dyslexia and similar

language-based learning

disabilities. Focusing on

small class sizes, 3 to 7 students

per class, and a low

four-to-one student to faculty

ratio, The Gow School

offers a multisensory approach

to teaching that enables

dyslexic students to

thrive. The Gow community

has a sense of belonging,

of equality, and of connection

born on common trials

and shared triumph.

Gow has a start fast, finish

strong mentality and

students typically start to

see progress soon after

they step foot in our classrooms.

Progress typically

comes quickly, soon after

they invest themselves

in the program. At the

school’s core is a structured

program designed to

help students navigate the

academic day and a daily

schedule designed to keep

students busy. Between

a packed class schedule,

after-school sports, study

hall and Saturday classes,

there is little unprogrammed

time.

The School is settled on

a 120-acre campus which

gives our students plenty

of room to learn and play.

Boarding school life does

not always allow lots of

free time, but it has plenty

of room for fun. Students

are so involved – playing

sports, going on trips and

hanging out with each other

– that they get the most

out of the rich residential

experience.

In July, the School’s coed

summer program is five

weeks of learning and fun

for ages 8 to 16. The Gow

School summer program is

for students who have been

experiencing academic difficulties,

or have been diagnosed

with dyslexia or

specific learning disabilities.

The summer program

runs from the end of June

to early August with morning

academics, afternoon

fun and games and weekend

adventures. The Gow

School summer program

gives students academic

tools and self-confidence

they can take with them

wherever they go; to the

classroom and beyond.

By combining a structured

program and environment

with flexibility,

individualization and room

for fun, Gow provides a

rich school experience that

is precisely what dyslexic

students need to learn and

to enjoy learning.

Feel the performer’s spirit at Music Theater Works

On five Mondays this

summer, a group of young

people will gather, and

they will share a single

thought: “Five days to

showtime!”

At the Music Theater

Works Summer Workshops,

performers ages

8 to 13 gather for a week

of rehearsals, singing,

dancing and acting in

preparation for a musical

performance on Saturday

fortheir friends and family.

Each week is a separate

session, and this year the

shows include “The Wizard

of Oz” (July 6-11),

“Seussical” (July 13-18),

“Legally Blonde” (July

20-25), “Guys and Dolls”

(July 27- Aug. 1) and

“Cinderella” (Aug. 3-8).

Putting together a show

in five days makes for an

exciting week, as all are

assigned parts, learn their

songs and practice their

dances until everything is

ready for the big show. It’s

a lot of work, but that has

never seemed to bother the

workshop participants —

they’re having too much

fun.

For many kids, the

workshops give them their

first taste of performing

in musical theater. Many

have gone in as absolute

beginners and emerged as

enthusiastic performers,

eager for their next challenge.

After last year’s workshops,

one mother wrote

to us that her daughter

“was completely taken by

her experiences in camp

last summer. It unlocked a

beautiful part of her and it

has allowed her to blossom

like nothing else she’s ever

experienced. Truly lifechanging.”

Workshop manager

Anya Plotkin is a big fan

of the workshops’ “tagteam”

casting style, in

which everyone is guaranteed

a part.

“Of course, we all want

to be the star of the show!

In our program, each and

every student has an equal

solo. All our kids get their

chance to shine, regardless

of prior experience,”

Plotkin said. “When we do

‘Annie,’ we may have seven

Annies and four Daddy

Warbucks and six Miss

Hannigans! The kids learn

that being part of a team is

a vital element to a great

performance.”

But Plotkin is convinced

the most important part of

the program is how it fosters

self-confidence in the

young performers.

“The rehearsal room is a

safe place for all our kids

to explore who they are,

without fear of censure or

discouragement,” Plotkin

said. “As they grow as

performers, they also grow

as people. They step into

someone else’s shoes, they

make new best friends,

they learn things they never

thought possible before,

we open them up to new

experiences and new ways

of thinking.”

“We help our students

every day, through a love

of music, dance, acting,

and each other,” Plotkin

added.

For more information,

call Music Theater Works

at (847) 920-5360. Workshop

classes are held at

516 4th St. in Wilmette.

Each workshop is Monday

through Friday from

9 a.m. to 3:30 pm, with

a final dress rehearsal on

Saturday at 2 p.m. and a

public performance at 4

p.m. Registration can be

Banner Day Camp ‘has

it all’ in the North Shore

Banner Day Camp is

proud to offer the North

Shore’s premier day camp

experience and is so excited

to celebrate its 56th

summer in 2020. When

camp was opened in 1964,

Banner’s desire was to

build a community centered

on compassion, kindness

and joy. This remains

our desire. Over the years

Banner has become home

to so many campers; a

place where they are nurtured,

accepted and a part

of an amazing camp community.

The growth our campers

make socially and emotionally

is life changing.

There is nothing more important

during their formative

years of life than to

give them a place where

they develop deep and

genuine self-confidence

by learning and mastering

new skills, become

increasingly independent,

increase resiliency, practice

empathy and grow in

social skills like friendship,

sportsmanship and

teamwork – all while having

fun.

The facilities and activities

at Banner are second

to none. The wide variety

of activities at camp provide

unique opportunities

for campers to experience

new things. From adventure

activities like the high

ropes course, bungee trampoline

and bumper boats

to swimming in our pool

complex or at our lake,

Banner has it all.

Our team is dedicated to

creating a fun, growthful

summer and an experience

that will be cherished for a

lifetime. Our Leadership

Team – made up of teachers,

school administrators

and camp professionals

– provide unsurpassed supervision

while developing

partnership with the

parents and the providing

the very best care of the

campers. Banner’s amazing

camp staff undergo extensive

training allowing

them to lead groups and

specialty areas with enthusiasm

and skill.

We encourage you to

visit camp and see for

yourself! Banner’s office

is open weekdays all year

long. Call us at (847) 295-

4900 to schedule a personal

tour to see the facility

and meet our team.
