Naomi Arnold

Naomi Arnold
Camp Director

Naomi’s journey to becoming a camp director began at the ripe age of three, in Minneapolis, Minnesota. There, she was camper and counselor in numerous youth groups and community programs before moving to sunny SoCal, where her undergraduate studies guided her towards an M.A. in Education. Naomi’s experiences as a classroom educator, mentor teacher, overseas exchange coordinator, and dean of faculty have fueled her drive to create inventive, playful learning spaces. During the school year, Naomi is a learning coach, where she partners with children and families to find sustainable solutions to education-related problems. Visiting Naomi in her native habitat, you’ll see her making up games with her family, experimenting with new foods, learning to paint, and playing guitar. You’ll also catch doing her “happy dance” as she gets Camp Galileo Santa Monica ready for a summer overflowing with masterful innovation, bubbling creativity, and magical silliness.
