Camp Staff Community

Greetings Camp Staffers

Thinking about coming back for another stellar season? Moved on to other innovative endeavors? Whether you’re planning to return to camp, or are on to new spectacular things, we’re here for you.

Below you’ll find resources tailored to you, including information about how to stay connected with fellow Galileans, helpful tips for telling future employers about your experience, and ways to welcome your friends or colleagues to our community of innovators.

Returning to Camp

Returning staffers like you are a crucial part of a successful summer—your guidance of new team members, the wisdom and perspective you bring, and your amazing energy help make each summer even better than the last.

You already know that a Galileo summer is filled with inspirational moments and incredible growth, and working for multiple summers only deepens that experience. We’re committed to playing a part in your professional development—during the summer and beyond—to help you reach your goals. And whatever role you take on, each year brings new opportunities to hone your strengths and tackle new challenges.

How to apply for another summer

First, apply early. Summer hiring launches in December each year, and the earlier you apply the better. Camp Directors assess staffing throughout winter, and the earlier your CD knows you want to return, the earlier you can connect about your plans, goals and intentions for another summer at camp.

Use the link below to log into your profile and access the returning staff application. We’ve saved your information from the last time you worked at camp, so the application process should be easy-breezy. All you have to do is log in to update your information, find the right position and general location, and then answer a few questions. It only takes about 5 minutes to apply! If you’re not sure whether you want to apply for the same role as last summer or if you want to try something new, no problem. Apply for what seems right, and we’ll work with you to determine the best next step.

Schedule conflicts? Apply anyway! We’ll do our best to get creative so you can return in the way that works best for you and for camp.

Important dates

  • Early December: Applications go live!
  • February: Camp Directors review returning staff applications and begin reaching out.
  • Mid-February: Returning staff application deadline. Apply by this time to ensure we get a look at your application before meeting applicants new to Galileo.
