Award-winning Summer Day Camp Brings Unique Blend of Fun & Enrichment to Glenview Community
Galileo Camps (Galileo Learning, LLC), one of the most renowned summer day camp providers in the country, will be putting down community roots in Glenview this summer at St. Catherine Laboure School 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-5th grade) and Galileo Summer Quest (5th-8th 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(R), which has been proven by a Stanford study to have lasting impact.
Founded by CEO Glen Tripp in the San Francisco Bay Area in 2002, Galileo first expanded to Chicagoland in 2016. After three years in the region, camps here have grown to serving 11 communities. “As a Chicago native and parent, it has been so fulfilling to bring Galileo’s fun and magic to the families who are closest to my heart. This program really does help kids develop 21st century learning skills, while improving their confidence to be bold-thinking changemakers at a time when the world needs it the most,” says Tajalli Horvat, Senior VP of Midwest Operations.
Galileo operates 100+ summer camps throughout California and Illinois where more than 35,000 kids and over 2,500 staff will invent, design, create and play in summer 2019. Galileo’s mission is to develop innovators who envision and create a better world. Founded in 2002 by Glen Tripp, Galileo is a certified B Corp, a Real Leaders’ 2019 Top Impact Company, and was also named one of Forbes’ Best Small Companies in 2017.
