At Galileo, we believe that summer camp should be loads of fun and profoundly enriching at the same time.
 
 

Galileo Innovation Camps for Pre-K – 8th Graders: Enrollment Opens January 10
At Galileo, we mix day camp fun with hands-on projects in fields from science and engineering to the visual and culinary arts. Supported by the best staff around, kids grow from Camp Galileo (pre-K – 5th grades) through Galileo Summer Quest (entering 5th – 8th grades), emerging as confident creators ready to turn their ideas into reality. We call them Galileo Innovators, and they will change the world.

At Camp Galileo, pre-K - entering 5th graders find the perfect mix of summer camp fun and hands-on learning. Supported by the boundless energy and experience of the best staff around, campers craft extraordinary works of art and engineer incredible inventions. Plus, they spend plenty of time playing, exploring and building their teamwork skills outdoors.

Each week is organized around a different inspiring theme and full of projects carefully designed for every age group. Here's what's happening in 

Renaissance Adventure – Masterful Masterpieces and da Vinci’s Inventions
Deep Ocean Explorers – Art and Science of the Mariana Trench
Expedition to Everest – Himalayan Art and the Science of Mountaineering
Makers Workshop – Handcrafted Art and Real-World Inventions

And announcing for the first time at Crestview, Galileo Summer Quest, where entering 5th – 8th graders find the perfect mix of day camp fun and hands-on learning as they dive deep into something that inspires them! Each week, campers choose from 3 immersive majors, picking a subject they already love or a new area they're excited to explore. Mentored by expert instructors and equipped with professional tools and materials, they produce YouTube videos, engineer drones, whip up gourmet confections, breathe life into robot pets and much, much more.
