🌞 Substantive knowledge that guides breakthrough thinking
💫 A process that supports bringing the best ideas to fruition.

Introduce your child to the GIA this summer at Camp Galileo. Early enrollment opens December 1st!

Today is National Youth Confidence Day! At Galileo, we believe self-esteem is the foundation upon which confidence is built. Our camp is designed to create lifelong innovators, and empower kids to feel empowered to take calculated risks, express their creativity, and collaborate with others.

To be successful, innovators must be able to interpret the environment they are innovating within. This includes understanding the ideas, principles, and facts relevant to their work as well as the contributions of relevant movements, artists, scientists, designers, and other experts that came before them.

Timeline photos 10/11/2022

How innovators approach the world sets the stage for what’s possible. Innovators envision a better world and imagine things that don’t yet exist. They believe that they can turn their ideas into reality. They are able to freely share their creativity, embrace challenges and courageously try new things.

Timeline photos 10/07/2022

A determined innovator knows that setbacks are an opportunity to learn, that innovation and mastery take effort and they persevere until they reach their goal. Successful innovators take time to reflect on what is and isn’t working in their design, and how their work impacts other people and the world, and always seek feedback to improve.

and sparkling LED lights.

Creativity is one of the cornerstones of Camp Galileo. We also love the Art in STEAM learning. We bring both to life in many ways at camp, but your camper might tell you their favorite way is with face painting! Your camper might come home looking like a tiger 🐯, a butterfly 🦋 , or a dinosaur 🦕 !
