Inspiring Fearless Innovators
Be a part of something bigger
Since 2002, Galileo operates award winning camps for Pre-K - 8th graders that mix big time fun with best in class learning—all at your neighborhood school.
Rediscover summer fun at Camp Galileo. Redesigned and Covid-safe for 2021, our award-winning camp immerses kids in daily art, science and outdoor challenges, all wrapped up in whimsical weekly themes. Tailored by age and engineered for maximum fun, every activity is designed to capture their curiosity, awaken their innovative spirit and build their creative confidence.
Experience big fun and learning on the small screen. Our enriching online classes and camps are led live by inspiring instructors and designed to ignite your child's creativity. Spend school vacations with our virtual Break Camps, let us plan your Parties or join our NEW Innovator's Club where Pre-K – 3rd graders explore different design and engineering projects every week.
Bring the magic of Galileo to your home pod. You provide 2 to 8 kids and a little outdoor space and we’ll do the rest. Choose the schedule that works best for you and a dedicated Galileo staffer will arrive to lead fun collaborative games, imagination-sparking, hands-on activities and engaging enrichment projects (plus some homework help, if you like).
"Galileo is raising the next generation of rocket scientists, artists, engineers, designers, Imagineers, big-thinkers and creative geniuses. I can’t wait to see what kind of bright future these kids build for us.”

“Every morning, our son literally jumps out of bed excited for camp. He loves the projects, the songs, the games, the friends and the staff, and can’t wait to get there!”
"Outstanding curriculum + incredible staff = a program that develops young people into innovators and creative problem solvers.”

“Of course summer camp should be fun—that’s a given. To have your child come home talking about how they were courageous or determined—that’s something special.”
“Problem solving is THE 21st Century skill. Galileo is a leader at providing experiences for kids that build their problem solving skills in ways that they love.”

“The incredible staff stands out to me as the best part of Galileo. Every single person at camp is smiling and energetic and smart. It makes me want to sign up as an adult!”
We’re on a mission to develop innovators who envision and create a better world. That’s why our programs offer more than just fun (though they are really, really fun). At our redesigned summer camps, through our online experiences or in your own backyard, Galileo’s proven curriculum and experienced, energetic staff help kids unlock the innovation skills—creative problem solving, courageous risk taking, persistence in the face of failure—they need to thrive.
