WHAT YOU’LL DO AT CAMP

  • Skillfully support instructors in one or more classes, ranging from Chefology to Digital Photography to Go-Kart Making, and more.
  • Make every moment count by filling transition times with games and jokes, utilizing each opportunity to make your group of 3rd to 8th grade campers feel special.

WHAT WE’LL DO TOGETHER

  • Play hard. It’s like ‘bring your inner child to work’ day.  All summer long.
  • Stretch ourselves, exhibiting silly-putty-like flexibility.
  • Whatever it takes. Being a Galilean means doing whatever needs to be done, whenever it needs doing. 
  • Reflect on our experiences every day, becoming even better versions of our best selves.
