Summer Jobs

Much More Than a Job

This summer, join our team and experience the most transformative 6-8 weeks of your life. So much more than just a summer job, working at a Galileo camp means joining a vibrant educational movement.

In addition to benefiting from our unwavering commitment to individualized professional development, you’ll strengthen leadership skills, work hard, and laugh even harder.

You’ll be a crucial member of a thoughtfully-formed team and others will rely on you to bring your best self to camp every day. You’ll be tinkering and creating, all the while making an indelible mark on hundreds of campers. Camp days are long but so worth the rewards.  In fact, it’s not unusual for Galileo staffers to realize their own dreams while helping a camper redesign the wheels of a go-kart or performing an end-of-camp skit. Already doing what you love during the school year? Galileo can provide a renewed sense of purpose and an invaluable “toolbox,” so you can do it even better.

Michael

Camp Director

“Galileo Camp Directors all experience the same sort of things, yet each one of us has such a different background, vision, staff and campers, that we all also experience it so differently. It has been such a great experience learning and growing with (and because of) Galileo.”
