Encouraging Kids with Innovation at Galileo Summer Camp


Have you ever been to a summer camp when you were a child? Unfortunately, I never got to go. They always looked like so much fun on movies though. I’m really grad that Galileo Summer Camps grabbed my attention because wouldn’t it be great for my kids to experience attending a summer camp?  innovation equals joy

My daughter has wanted to go to camp now for a couple of years. She is nine years old and in the fourth grade. Our family is big on innovation and Galileo Summer Camps really supports that interest. They leverage their Stanford-innovation process, but in place of weekly themes they introduce weekly majors. Inspired by expert instructors, campers realize their personal vision in one or more of 14 majors. Each week is an opportunity to try something new or go deeper and experiment in a major they already love. 

Your child can customize their summer. You can combine the week-long majors that inspire your kids the most. Each week of summer camp your child will explore and express their own personal vision as part of a community of innovators. Returning campers can explore something new or get right back into a major they love. With a week’s worth of experience, campers will return to familiar majors and be ready to learn more sophisticated concepts and try more ambitious projects. Some of the majors include:

    • Digital Photography
    • Digital Filmmaking
    • Comic Book Workshop
    • Painter’s Studio
    • Fashion Design
    • Intro to Video Game Design
    • Video Game Design Advanced
    • Website Design
    • Lego Robotics
    • Chefology: Simply Savory
    • Chefology: Decadent Desserts 
    • Go-Kart Builders
    • Go-Karts Extreme
    • Inventor’s Workshop
