Galileo Learning

    OverviewSuggest Edit

    Something powerful happens at Galileo that doesn’t happen at other camps. Sure, kids have fun. They have a lot of fun. They come home glowing, grimy and wiped out.

    But amidst the frenzy, they also learn something with the potential to change them—and the world—profoundly. They learn how to fail. Not in a humiliating or dispiriting way. But in a self-assured way, that helps turn them into hardy, risk-taking creators and problem-solvers.
