The galileo difference
At Camp Galileo, kids are immersed in all the epic
F-U-N (outdoor games, silly songs, water play, and costumes) you expect at the best summer camps, but Galileo is in a league all its own.
Fueled by a process inspired by the Stanford d.school, passionate college-graduate instructors lead campers to design and build impressive art and engineering projects while unlocking the innovation skills they’ll need to thrive in the future.
The moment kids run through the fun machine (the streamer entry to camp) their unforgettable summer begins.
