Award-winning summer day camp brings unique blend of fun & enrichment to Arcadia community
Galileo Camps (Galileo Learning, LLC), one of the most renowned summer day camp providers in the country, will be putting down community roots this summer at Barnhart School in Arcadia on June 17, 2019.
Galileo’s mission is to develop innovators who envision and create a better world. This work is more important today than ever before. There are two primary programs: Camp Galileo (preK-fifth grade) and Galileo Summer Quest (fifth-eight grade). In a whimsical, one-of-a-kind, joyful summer setting, kids and staff learn what it means to be a true innovator. Through imaginative themes and majors, they learn to apply a comprehensive yet straightforward framework called The Galileo Innovation Approach, which has been proven by a Stanford study to have lasting impact.
Founded by CEO Glen Tripp in the Bay Area in 2002, Galileo first expanded to Southern California in 2015. After three years in the region, SoCal camps have grown to serve 26 communities. “As a SoCal native and parent, it has been so fulfilling to bring Galileo magic to the families who are closest to my heart. This program really does teach kids how to be hopeful, bold-thinking changemakers at a time when the world needs it most,” says Sarah McDonald, VP of Southern California Operations.
