Dear Families,

As an organization run by parents that has been responsible for thousands of kids’ summer experiences over the last 18 years, Galileo considers the health and safety of our campers, families and staff to be our top priority. Here’s how we’re responding to COVID-19.

In addition to our longstanding and rigorous safety procedures and staff training protocols, we are following the latest guidelines on health and safety, cleaning and preparedness from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the local departments of health where we operate camps. We’ve also joined a growing list of leaders committed to a movement to #stopthespread and flatten the curve. As information is changing quickly, we are regularly reviewing and updating our policies to ensure that we stay current with CDC/local recommendations to keep our campers and staff safe.

We don’t currently foresee any interruptions to our summer schedules, but we know you may have questions as camp approaches. Visit our FAQ page for more information about how we plan to support a healthy camp environment, including stepped-up cleaning protocols, social distancing strategies, sick policies and health screenings. We’ll be updating this page—and you—as information evolves and camp draws near.

While we understand that your planning this year may feel uncertain, the Galileo community is here to support you every step of the way. We can’t wait to spend a safe, healthy, joyful summer with your campers!

Yours in innovation and good health,

Glen Tripp
Founder, Galileo Learning
