Award-Winning Summer Day Camp and Enrichment Programming Brings Unique Blend of Fun & Enrichment to the Greater D.C Area

Galileo Learning, LLC, one of the most renowned summer day camp providers in the country, will be putting down community roots this summer in the D.C. Metro Area beginning in 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-plus jobs in the Washington D.C. region this summer for teachers and college students who assist them. Through imaginative themes and programming, campers are guided by specially-trained staff to apply a design thinking framework to their camp projects called The Galileo Innovation Approach.® The methodology, which has been proven by a Stanford study to have lasting impact, has been honed over the past 20 years. Camp Galileo currently operates in California, Illinois, Colorado, Seattle and now Washington D.C.

“We are dedicated to our mission to bring joy and creativity to children across the country, and I’m personally very excited to expand our reach to the nation’s capital this summer,” Galileo Learning CEO Glen Tripp says. “All children have the ability to be change makers and innovators who better our world, and I’m thrilled to help more and more kids develop the attitudes and skills they need to achieve this through our camp and enrichment programs.”

“The Washington D.C. region is the perfect place for us to pursue  our mission to inspire innovation,” Selamawit Washington, Washington D.C. Territory Director says. “This region is full of innovative organizations and people who understand the value of creative confidence. But children’s ability to get out and be creative has been impeded by the events of the last two years. We can’t wait to help catalyze this type of development in young people in the region.”

Enrollment for Camp Galileo opens in early 2022.
