However, your satisfaction matters most to us and refunds or credits will be considered.

This will allow families to reserve their child’s spot NOW, but apply payment closer to the camp and/or swim lesson start date. For more information, please call 650-780-7311 or e-mail recreation@redwoodcity.org.

GALILEO’S INVENTIONS NEW Grades 2nd-5th & 6th-8th (Plus one Girl’s Only Class) with Synapse School Galileo’s discoveries marked a counterpoint in the world’s understanding of the structure of the universe. Learn about the different views about the earth and the sun and how the scientific method and technology affect what we know about our physical world. Through hands-on activities, students will discover the ways by which scientists measure the speed of light, gravity, scale and distances of planets, the moon, the sun, and all the other stars in our universe. If aliens exist in other universes, what would they know about life on earth? Students will also learn about current issues and discoveries of the universe, including the Big bang, Dark Energy, and possibly the existence of other universes.

FILMMAKING FROM SCRIPT TO PREMIERE

Ages 8-12 & 13-16

NEW

with Freshi Media www.freshimedia.com This class begins with a completed script, allowing the participants to immediately get into the substance of a project in small groups. From a book of scripts, the group decides on the genre of film they want to produce: comedy, drama, sci-fi, action adventure or horror. The group begins with creating the storyboards for their film. Using basic video cameras and editing software, they produce the film, integrating simple special effects, sound effects and a musical score that is specific to the theme of their film. They learn camera angles, film etiquette and vocabulary, as well as how to use digital film tools. These learned skills should translate outside of the class to their home video camera and computer so they can continue with their digital storytelling after the class is over. The final class will premiere their movie for the benefit of family and friends – a fun and interactive way to wrap a film production! $187 / $207 NR 8-12yrs

SKYHAWKS BEGINNING GOLF NEW Age 5-9 For more information, please visit www.skyhawks.com Skyhawks Golf focuses on building the confidence of young athletes through proper technique and refinding the essential skills of the game. As we know, golf is a challenging and lifelong sport, so young athletes need proper focus on the fundamentals of form, swinging, putting, and body positioning. To assist in this training, Skyhawks has adopted the SNAG (Starting New At Golf) system to its curriculum. Developed by PGA professionals, SNAG is specifically designed for the entry-level player; SNAG simplifies instruction so that young players can make an easy & effective transition onto the golf course. No need to bring your own clubs, all equipment is provided. For safety reasons we utilize special helmets for all campers and keep the instructor to camper ratio for this program very low, resulting in limited ability. As a result these programs fill up quickly. All participants receive a t-shirt and a merit award.

JUNIOR GOLF CAMP

Age 5-14yrs with Emerald Hills Golf Staff Camp starts at 9:00 but you can drop off as early as 8:30! Orientation will be on Monday at 9:00am, and this is an opportunity for us to get to know the campers and for the campers to learn camp rules and expectations and meet their counselors. Throughout the camp they will be taught the skills of putting, chipping, bunker shots, driving and midrange game. We will take them into our driving range where they will be able to fine tune their swings. We believe the best way for young golfers to learn is by allowing them to play on a real golf course, as opposed to just a driving range. At the same time we can also teach them golf etiquette which is very important to use on a golf course. Hot Lunch is served daily for all campers and snacks will be provided at aftercare.
