CAMP GALILEO (PRE-K – ENTERING 5th GRADERS)
Make this the summer of risk-taking, change-making & crazy amounts of fun. At Camp Galileo, pre-K - 5th graders unleash their inner innovators by exploring art, science and the brave outdoors. Campers develop the courage to create, celebrate mistakes and boldly innovate. And as they grow, so does their curriculum - evolving to include more advanced concepts, projects and creative freedom.

At Camp Galileo, campers embrace the exciting and messy steps it takes to change the world around them. They make their own mini stop-motion movies; construct the coolest catapults; make anything from marbleized paper to pneumatic machines. Because they can. And Galileans do. Check out what they’ll explore in all four, weekly themes:

  • Galileo Amusement Park—The Art & Engineering of Circuses and Carnival Rides
  • Galileo Makers: Move It—The Art & Science of Motion
  • Medieval Adventure—Royal Art & Inventions of the Middle Ages
  • African Safari—The Art & Science of the Serengeti
GALILEO SUMMER QUEST: BOLD MAJORS FOR 5TH – 8TH GRADERS
Say goodbye to the same old summer. At Galileo Summer Quest, rising 5th—8th graders think big (like, world-changing big). By designing their own video games, signature dishes, websites and more, campers learn to celebrate their most epic fails, coolest creations, and the power of their own designs.

With expert instruction and state-of-the-art tools, campers collaborate and create within dynamic majors. Whether they’re interested in launching fashion lines or YouTube channels, building go-karts or websites, designing unique flavor combinations, there’s something engaging for everyone. Majors offered vary by location.

OUR SECRET SAUCE: THE GALILEO INNOVATION APPROACH
We think the world needs innovators. We also think kids who learn to explore and fail without fear—the essence of innovation—are happier, more creative and more confident when faced with life’s challenges. They don’t always get this incredible boost in other settings, but thousands of them have been getting it at Galileo since 2002.

We do it by teaching campers to understand and apply the Galileo Innovation Approach—or the “G.I.A.,” as we sometimes like to call it. The GIA is inspired by the innovation process developed at the Stanford d.school. We took some of their fundamental ideas, added our own, then adapted it for kids from pre-K through 8th grade, when they’re especially open to absorbing new ways to think, explore and create.
