Team Leaders play the central role in each Camp Galileo camper’s summer experience, managing their own teams of pre-K – 5th graders.

Experience leading packs of kids in costume and writing boisterous cheers comes in handy, but isn’t required. Team Leader positions with shorter summer commitments also available.
