About the organization
Galileo’s mission is to develop innovators who envision and create a better world. We know it’s bold. We also know that we can’t achieve it without asking staff to be role models of an innovator’s mindset—visionary, courageous, collaborative, determined and reflective. It’s not always easy. Camp staffers work hard, and bring camp magic to life—for campers, and for themselves.
This isn’t your average summer teaching gig. Galileans are expected to take ownership of their own performance and make this place better every day. People with a can-do attitude thrive here and those with a victim mentality don't. We manage to keep this level of performance expectation high in a relaxed environment; we take our work, not ourselves, seriously.
Galileans know what it means to be a vital part of a team. Galileans want to grow. Galileans like to have fun at work. Galileans love sharing in—and helping to create—joyful experiences. After all, we run summer camps. You get the point.
Passionate about working with and having an impact on kids? Believe the world needs innovators, now more than ever? Ready to get outdoors, and have a career-defining summer learning the high-demand skill of hands-on program development? Have a love for art, science, outdoor play, team-building or education? Consider a role at our newly redesigned, COVID-safe camp—same joyful Galileo vibe, with thoughtful new safety precautions for all.
Group Instructors are the most consistent presence in the experience of each Camp Galileo camper. They spend the entire camp day supporting their group of campers and providing instruction for fun, engaging projects and activities. They’re responsible for bringing the GIA to life, and have the greatest potential impact on each camper’s summer. This responsibility requires partnering with Summer Interns and the Camp Director to bring careful attention to the physical and emotional safety of each and every camper within a team, and to the overall development and formation of the group as a whole.
