Summer camps hosted at Palo Alto public schools

PALO ALTO

Summer camps hosted at Palo Alto public schools

 

It always seems to be a challenge choosing the right summer camp for our children. With so many options, it is even more challenging knowing where to start.  This year we tried to identify some of the camps that are going to be hosted at Palo Alto Unified School District (PAUSD) locations to make the decision a bit easier.  Some people are set on their favorites camps no matter where they are located, but for those of you having a hard time deciding,  hopefully the benefits can help you make up your mind.

There are several benefits in choosing a camp at your child’s school: your child may know someone who is also attending the camp (a best friend or classmate) or it may be closer to home, (a neighborhood school). In addition, familiarity with the location takes out the stress of camp anxiety in your child.

There are quite a few reasons why Palo Alto is considered one of the best places to live. The abundance of parks, protected open space areas, smart people, great restaurants, fantastic public and private schools, a myriad of city resources, and a culturally diverse environment are only some of the fantastic reasons that tempt people from all over the world to make Palo Alto their home. Not to mention that Palo Alto is situated in the heart of Silicon Valley’s tech industry, with Stanford University as a backdrop. Unfortunately, for many people this lifestyle comes at a price that escalates with each new resident that is born or moves here and with each existing resident that lives longer and decides not to move away for their retirement.
