Our Small Company Makes a Big Impact

Galileo Named One of America's Best Small Companies by Forbes

Forbes recently dubbed us a Small Giant—and we can't help but agree. Because while we're small in size, we feel pretty big when it comes to our mission and its impact. And that's why we landed a spot on the 2017 Forbes Small Giant list, a short, prestigious lineup of companies that, according to Forbes, "value greatness over growth." It's an honor only 25 businesses across the country receive, and the ones that do "have sound models, strong balance sheets and steady profits… We're proud to be named a Small Giant Company by ForbesThey contribute to their communities. They have been acknowledged as outstanding by others in their field. And they do things any business can learn from."

And while we're always honored and humbled to receive an accolade like this one, we're most proud of what it means for the Galileo community, from staffers to campers and their families. In this case, it means that we value greatness over growth—not because we're averse to growth, but because meeting our mission to develop innovators who can change the world requires intention and integrity.

So we focus on that first. How can we deliver a crazy-fun, incredibly enriching experience for our campers? How can we nurture and develop the most amazing staff? How can we make Galileo great for every member of our community?

That's the kind of work that makes us proud to be a Small Giant. And whether you're an aspiring staffer or a soon-to-be camper, we can't wait to make a giant impact on your summer.
