In this episode of School's In, Galileo founder Glen Tripp shares advice for choosing a summer experience that's engaging and valuable.

With so many options for summer camp these days, how do parents choose one that’s right for their family? And how can they make sure the summer break provides opportunities for their child to develop confidence, creativity and other life skills?

In this episode of School’s In, Stanford Graduate School of Education Dean Dan Schwartz and Senior Lecturer Denise Pope are joined by Glen Tripp, founder and CEO of Galileo.

Together they explore ways to make every child’s summer experience more fun and meaningful—even if the prospect of attending a formal summer camp is financially or logistically unworkable.
