My son attended Galileo Summer Quest last summer for the first time (after doing Camp Galileo for many years) and he loved it. The cooking program was fantastic. It brought out a side of him I'd never seen before. Cooked dinner for us several times and went to other family and cooked for them as well. He loved the science projects where he got to build rockets. He even created his own video game! The staff is super high energy, very professional. Way, way above summer babysitting - an adventure that he was excited to get up for every day for 2 wks. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this program to anyone whose child is interested in science. A bit on the pricey side but check into scholarships - they will consider and I am aware of a deserving child who received one for Camp Galileo.
