Ian Roncskevitz
Camp Director

Ian joined the founding Southern California Galileo family as a Go-Karts LI and an all around personified spirit stick, in the summer of 2015. Ian’s passion for youth development first took form in Northern Ireland, where he facilitated cross-community workshops with the Peace and Reconciliation Group. Galileo perfectly articulates his motivation for engaging with young people- the belief that we can inspire campers to affect change in every element of society, and the world. He may not look like it, or sound like it, but he hails from TN. He earned his B.S. in Political Science from U.T. Chattanooga, and could not be happier to now live on the opposite side of the country. Surf’s up.
