At Camp Galileo, pre-K - entering 5th graders find the perfect mix of summer camp fun and hands-on learning. Supported by the boundless energy and experience of the best staff around, campers craft extraordinary works of art like spinning solar system mobiles, glowing neon signs and magical, multicolor monsters and engineer incredible inventions like rideable scooters, slingshot cars and animatronic animals-plus spend plenty of time playing, exploring and building their teamwork skills outdoors.

Each week of our four-week program is organized around a different inspiring theme and full of projects carefully designed for every age group. 2018 themes:

  • The Incredible Human Body - The Art and Science of Being Human
  • Space Explorers - Cosmic Art and Astronaut Science
  • Road Trip Adventure - Art and Engineering on Route 66
  • Galileo Makers: Materials Challenge - Extraordinary Art and Inventions with Ordinary Supplies

Say goodbye to the same old summer. At Galileo Summer Quest, rising 5th-8th graders think big (like, world-changing big). Each child has the opportunity to pursue something that interests them, as we offer sessions with different themes or "majors," from go-karts to cooking (or "chefology"), designing their own YouTube channel to catapult construction. With expert instruction and state-of-the-art tools, campers collaborate and create within dynamic majors. Galileo Summer Quest runs at our Lincoln Park and Winnetka locations. Majors offered vary by location.

Galileo's Chicago summer camp programs stand apart due to our phenomenal staff and the quality of our curriculum that spans a range of themes and majors that kids can enjoy. Our goal is to transform the way in which your child thinks, learns and engages with the world around them. This shift is what creates innovators-individuals who are not afraid to pursue their dreams, explore, collaborate, make mistakes and grow from those experiences. We want to teach kids to see themselves not as recipients of what the world gives them, but as actors who can create real change. This mindset shift is something that can permeate every nook and cranny of their future, benefiting them for years to come. It's this goal, this approach that makes Galileo one of the best summer camp experiences throughout Chicagoland.

Your child will leave our camp with a new sense of confidence, independence, a renewed thirst for knowledge and some wonderful new friends. Make the coming summer an enriching and memorable one for your child with Galileo.
