Three Daily Destinations

In addition to participating in camp games, ceremonies, skits and songs, rising K–1st graders visit three engaging destinations every day, each tailored to their age and designed to unlock the innovation skills they need to thrive.

Innovator's Studio

Where they build creative confidence turning their ideas into individual, polished STEAM projects to take home every week (see project highlights below).

Idea Lab

Where they collaborate on daily design challenges, experiment with wild ideas and find out that sending their creations crashing down is all part of the fun—and learning!

Outdoor Adventure

Where they play exciting outdoor games, take on team-building challenges with an innovative twist and engage in traditional camp fun, from relay races and tag to lanyards and face painting.


Every week at Camp Galileo is a new hands-on adventure in our Innovator's Studio. Kids can choose their favorites from six unique sets of projects—or spend their summer creating them all!

Rail Rides & Road Trips

All roads—and rails!—lead to fun with a week full of things that go. Construct your own rail-ready train complete with smooth axles and sturdy cargo holds. Design colorful cars and a play car wash complete with working scrubbers to drive them through.

Mission to the Moon

Blast off on an innovative adventure to infinity and beyond! Design a boldly decorated wearable jetpack and a handy handcart for collecting moon rocks. Investigate aerodynamics as you shoot for the moon with a high-flying rubber band rocket.

Animal Extravaganza

Celebrate your furry friends with cool creature creations. Learn about sturdy construction and patterning as you design a pull pet to roll with you and a rocking animal you can really ride on. Craft a cool case to hold collars, food bowls or any other pet accessories you can imagine!

Coral Reef Quest

Dive into the extraordinary Great Barrier Reef. Construct a vibrantly painted 3D reef and a mix of crafty creatures to go with it: a clay-sculpted nudibranch, a dumbo octopus with articulated arms and a festive cut-paper Christmas tree worm designed to pop out of its “coral” home.

Amusement Park Party

Step right up to a playful park of your own design! Try your luck making a ball-in-a-maze game and steadying a teetering acrobat on a balance beam. Create a colorful, wearable concession box stocked with clay whirly pops, textured popcorn and painted cotton candy.

Superhero Adventure

Get geared up to save the day as the superest superhero ever. Craft an identity-concealing mask, a bold logo and a utility belt with pockets for custom gadgets. Design rotating dials and hinged switches for a master control panel to mount in your own awesome hero vehicle.

Find Your Nearest Camp


Galileo projects are awesome. But while campers are making their jetpacks and rolling pets, they’re also doing something more—they’re learning how to innovate. Fueled by a process inspired by the Stanford, Galileo helps campers learn essential innovation skills, like how to creatively solve problems, fearlessly try new things and persist in the face of challenges.

The products are cool. But the byproducts—the newfound confidence, vision and grit you’ll start seeing in your kids after only a short time—are what make Galileo so much more than your average summer camp.

About Galileo

"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."
