Award-Winning Summer Day Camp and Enrichment Programming Brings Unique Blend of Fun & Enrichment to the Seattle Community
Galileo Learning, one of the most renowned summer day camp providers in the country, will be putting down community roots this summer in Seattle starting for the 2022 summer camp season.
Galileo Learning’s mission is to develop innovators who envision and create a better world. Galileo’s signature camp program, Camp Galileo, offers children ages pre K to sixth grade project-based learning that incorporates making, engineering, art, design and outdoor play.
In partnership with local schools, Galileo Learning is creating 100 jobs in the Seattle region this summer for teachers and college students who assist them. Camp Galileo currently operates in California, Illinois, Colorado, and now Seattle.
Through imaginative themes and programming, campers, guided by specially-trained staff, learn to apply a design thinking framework to their camp projects called The Galileo Innovation Approach, which has been proven by a Stanford study to have lasting impact.
“Our mission is to bring joy and creativity to kids in as many communities as possible, and we are thrilled to be entering the innovative hub of Seattle this summer,” Galileo Learning CEO Glen Tripp says.
“At Galileo we believe the world can become a better place through innovation, and that all children have the ability to develop the attitudes and skills they need to be changemakers,” said Tripp. “Galileo is excited to expand its offerings to the broader Seattle community.”
“Seattle is the perfect place for Galileo Learning’s mission to inspire innovation in children through our award-winning camp programming,” Jill Riemer, Galileo Learning Seattle Territory Director says. “The events of the last two years have greatly impeded children’s ability to get out and be creative, and we are excited to tap into and bring out the local population of innovators, in education and beyond, to help lead and shape the city’s young minds.”
Enrollment for Camp Galileo opens in early 2022.
