Overall B Impact Scoreinfo_outline


The B Impact Scores are being compared against all businesses that have completed the B Impact Assessment

Galileo operates over 40 camps throughout the Bay Area and Los Angeles. Everything that happens for campers is informed by the Galileo Innovation Approach (affectionately known as the “GIA”). Inspired by the innovation process developed at the Stanford d.school, the GIA is a distillation of everything kids need to learn to envision and create a better world–the mindset, the knowledge and the process. Parents of Galileo campers say their kids exude a newfound confidence. They no longer fear mistakes–-they embrace them as a natural part of refining their cool idea. And they continue to create works of art and invent problem-solving contraptions out of household recyclables long after summer camp is over.

It’s been close to 15 years and thousands of campers and staff since Galileo’s inception. While successfully igniting a new generation of fearless innovators, Galileo is also thoughtfully preparing each one of them to live a freer, happier life, and to make their own contribution to a brighter world all can enjoy.
