  1. I have never seen such a huge schedule for the summer camps. Its seems fabulous for me. I do organize Summer Camps for Kids in Hyderabad and over there we keep only limited activites for kids in the camp. The Almaden Valley seems to be very interesting. Also you have lot of option for kids to be interactive and be open to express their ideas through Arts, music and so on. Lastly very nice one for kids and i hope they enjoy it a lot.

    1. Thank you for your kind words! There are many camps available in the San Jose,CA area as we have many active families and parents who would like their kids to experience enriching activities during the summer. Thank you for taking a look!

  2. With so many summer camps available, I sure think that the parents would be able to find one that their kid would surely enjoy.
