about Camp Galileo & Galileo Summer Quest :
On a weekly basis, Camp Galileo programming focuses on specific art, science, and outdoor themes, with three unique weeks of programming offered. Each day campers rotate in teams of 16 between art, science, and outdoor learning activities, dividing their time equally between the three topics.
The Camp Galileo experience is topped off with games, theme days, and ... a rubber chicken mascot!
GoCityKids sent in a young camper to see what he thought. And, wow... we are highly impressed with the level of enthusiasm and professionalism at the camp. The staff makes a huge effort to get to know the kids and provide a positive experience for them. It is so much fun that the kids don't even realize it is educational, too! Our six-year-old camper said, "It seems like every kid at the camp is having a great time!" (This coming from a kid who literally cried when dropped off at his former camp!)
Camp Galileo is located in 21 Bay Area communities in San Francisco, Marin, the East Bay, South Bay and the Peninsula.
