Ricky's first summer at camp was in 2013, and has spent every summer at Camp Galileo since! With the help of his courageous sidekick: Chicken Bob, they together love to foster an energetic, fun and creative culture at camp, where campers and staff feel empowered to thrive and be fearless innovators! Ricky has a B.A in Economics from UC Riverside. While in college he gained experience working with the Santa Barbara Parks & Recreation Division and later on with the Boys & Girls Club in the Peninsula. After 7 summers with Galileo, Ricky has had the opportunity to support in every single role at camp, since he started his career as an intern and now has found his passion as a Camp Director! In his free time, Ricky enjoys hiking/running, playing tennis, teaching kids how to code and listening to music!

As a parent, we know deciding on a summer camp for your child can be extremely difficult. At Galileo, we believe in nurturing curiosity, developing creative problem-solving skills and fostering teamwork during each camp session. Our goal at Camp Galileo is to merge exploration, learning and pure fun to create an unforgettable experience for our campers during their summer day camp sessions . We give kids the opportunity to delve into get-your-wiggles-out outdoor games, combined with mind-expanding group and individual projects, like building robotic arms or handcrafting tilt-a-whirls. Every camper will find activities and projects of interest and will create lasting memories with new friends.
One of the most significant advantages of attending summer camp is the opportunity for children to learn new skills and make new friends. Building friendships at camp not only brings immense joy but also cultivates essential social skills, such as cooperation, negotiation and effective communication. As campers form bonds with their peers, they gain confidence, preparing them to navigate the real world once their time at camp has ended.
At Galileo, our top priority is providing a memorable experience that fosters creativity, perseverance and innovation. The Galileo Innovation Approach engages campers’ inquisition, critical thinking and problem solving skills.
