Like Disney characters, children see the world through rose-colored glasses, burst into song unprovoked, and openly converse with hyenas. Introduce your kids to other enchanted children with today's Groupon: for $80, you get one week of summer camp at O2B Kids (up to a $160 value) in Alachua. Week-long sessions are held 9 a.m.–6 p.m. Monday–Friday. Early drop-off begins at 7 a.m. and extended evening hours last until 7 p.m. The deadline for camp registration is June 27.
The energetic staff at O2B Kids cultivates children’s blossoming creativity and social skills through a selection of fun, educational summer camps that incorporate learning activities and field trips. A week-long admission grants kids from kindergarten through eighth grade access to a treasure trove of knowledge-building classes that include topics such as science, music, sports, and molecular orbital theory. Between snack breaks, group time, and lunch, children will disperse into the classes of their choice, in which they’ll improve their tiny green thumbs through plant exploration or learn how to use computers to hack into Barney’s Twitter account. Local field trips give tykes the exciting opportunity to stretch their limbs outside the camp’s confines, where they can be chaperoned around the pool, skating rink, park, or zoo.
