Summer Camps @ The Tech

Best SF Bay Area STEAM Camps and Programs

When San Jose’s The Tech Museum of Innovation decided to host a summer camp program, they called upon Galileo to become a partner in developing a one-of-a-kind STEAM camp, designed for kids in the 4th through 8th grades.

Since its conception, Galileo’s Summer Camps @ The Tech program has offered Bay Area kids the chance to innovate, grow, and socialize with like-minded campers. In fact, our unique program has evolved into one of the most popular and comprehensive of its kind in the entire San Francisco Bay Area. That’s no small feat when you consider that the SF Bay Area is among the world’s premier tech and innovation hubs. There’s no shortage of STEAM camps in the region, but with the collaboration of a world-class museum and our world-class camp leaders and educators, our Summer Camps @ The Tech program is unrivaled in curriculum and innovation.
