How long do I have to schedule my pre-purchased weeks of camp?

To secure your first-choice schedule for 2018, we encourage you to take advantage of our VIP registration period in January (1/4/18 - 1/7/18. However, you’ll have until May 31, 2018, to schedule your specially priced weeks of camp. The purchase value of Pre-Season Sale weeks does not expire—after May 31, you can apply your pre-purchase value toward regularly priced weeks of camp.


Can I sign up for specific dates, locations, themes and majors when I pre-purchase?

Not yet. You can buy (and save on) 2018 weeks of camp through August 21, 2017.

We’re currently working to confirm our 2018 existing and new host school partnerships and will share those details in January. Please keep in mind that specific locations, dates, themes and majors that were offered in 2017 are not guaranteed in 2018. If you don't see your preferred location listed, you can still purchase weeks now by selecting the "Other/Not-listed" option. If you are unable to find a location that works for you once registration opens in January, you may receive a full refund for your pre-purchased weeks.


What is your cancellation policy? Can I transfer or get a refund for my pre-purchased weeks of camp?

Families that have pre-purchased camp weeks must schedule specific sessions by May 31, 2018, to retain their discount pricing (although the purchase value of Pre-Season Sale weeks does not expire). You can cancel your purchase anytime before you schedule camp. Once you’ve scheduled your weeks, our standard transfer and refund policies apply.

If you purchase multiple weeks now, but don't end up using them all in 2018, you can hang on to them as credit for future summers or you can be refunded for unused weeks. For example, if you purchase four weeks of Camp Galileo now, and only register for two in 2018, you can call customer service after registration to get a refund for the purchase value of the two unused weeks. You can even choose to hang on to all four of those weeks and apply the purchase value towards more innovation in the summers to come. 


How does Pre-Season Sale pricing compare to other promotions that will be offered in 2018?

​While pricing and  promotional offers for 2018 are still being determined, we can guarantee that our Pre-Season Sale prices will be the lowest per-week prices for Camp Galileo and Galileo Summer Quest in 2018.
