How is this different from your regular Camp Galileo program?
We’ve completely adapted our program to these times! Campers will be outdoors all day, they’ll stay with the same group and staffer all day and all week, and they’ll do a mix of outdoor games and fun camp traditions, with some art and engineering challenges along the way. Our typical Camp Galileo program has a more structured design, and an art and science curriculum that is thoughtfully prepared years in advance around a single theme with well-tested projects and challenges.
Mini Camp 2020 Cancellation Policy
Enrollment of Camp Galileo Anywhere Mini Camp are non-refundable. Should you cancel sessions for any reason, or should Galileo be forced to cancel sessions due to government restrictions, pandemic, protests, other acts of God or any other reason that would deem camp to be unsafe to families and staff, or commercially unreasonable, all fees paid will be credited back to your Galileo account. Credits may be applied toward future Galileo camp or class purchases and will expire on 12/31/21
Will you provide my child with a face mask? Will they be required to wear it?
Campers are encouraged to bring their own mask from home and to wear it, but will not be required to do so. Staffers will wear masks at all times.
Can my child be grouped with their friends?
Yes! As long as campers are in the same age group we are happy to honor grouping requests. You can make the request when you enroll, and is in the same section as the health history form.
Can we sign up for just one week of Mini Camp?
No, all campers must enroll for both weeks.
What if my camper gets sick prior to camp?
Campers may attend camp as long as they have met CDC criteria to discontinue home isolation, including 3 days with no fever, symptoms have improved and 10 days since symptoms first appeared.
What happens if my camper has a temperature of 100.4 or higher or is feeling unwell?
If your camper is not feeling well or has a temperature, they should stay home. If they arrive at camp and their temperature is 100.4 or higher, we will take a second temperature reading to confirm. Campers with a temperature of 100.4 or higher will not be able to return to camp during this session. A partial refund will be granted for that week. You can contact Customer Service team for a refund.
How will you manage heat/shade during the day?
If there is no natural shade in your camper’s group’s outdoor space, we will be providing shade structures. Additionally, we will integrate frequent water reminders and on particularly hot days, some light water activities.
What if I want to walk my camper into or out of camp, instead of curbside check-in/out?
It is highly encouraged for the health and safety of campers and staff, that all caregivers use curbside drop off and pick up. If you need to park and come into camp for any reason, we ask that only one caregiver comes onto campus and that they wear a face mask.
What Will the Check-In Process Be Like?
In an effort to reduce crowds and visitors on campus, check-in will be entirely curbside. Prior to camp, you will receive a location and window of time during which you will be asked to drop off your camper(s). Because of this, it is important that you review your camper’s health history and authorized pick up list ahead of time.
Here is what you can expect during your check-in window:
Upon arrival daily, you will follow staff instructions, be asked to answer a few health screening questions, then your camper’s temperature will be read with a touch-free thermometer before exiting the car and joining the camp fun. More detailed instructions will be included in your guide to camp.
