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.

“I'm not kidding when I say Galileo has fundamentally changed the course of my life, not just once, but many times. It made me realize I could work & play with kids as a career and it let me shine in ways I didn't know existed within."
Lead Art Instructor
“I learned so much about myself that first year - most importantly, I realized that I love teaching. What Galileo offered me was a different way I could be a teacher, and a drive to bring the values of Galileo to my future students.”
“From the thoughtful questions that are asked by my campers, to the constant encouragement from my fellow staff members, Camp Galileo has inspired me to be courageous and determined. Overall, I have been inspired to be a better leader.”
“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.”
