Camp Galileo offers four unique weeks, each with their own engaging curriculum theme. You can sign-up for one or multiple weeks.

Each week of camp is built around an intriguing storyline and art and science theme. As the week progresses, activities become more sophisticated and build toward a culminating project.

The 2011 themes include the following:

  • Lost in the Forbidden City: Chinese Art & Building Design
  • Inventor’s Workshop: The Art & Science of Toy Design
  • Detective in Paris: Impressionism & The Science of Sleuthing
  • We Built This City: Urban Art & Environmental Engineering

Camp Galileo is for kids Pre-Kindergarten through 5th Grade. Campers are grouped by grade level into teams that stay together throughout the week.

As campers advance through the three age groups, they delve deeper into science and art concepts, use more advanced materials, and work on more complex team-building challenges.
