Our Vision and Values

What Galileo Offers You

Integrity and Purpose

We are a movement of current and aspiring industry professionals united in a common purpose: to develop innovators who envision and create a better world.  As a certified B-Corp, we wholeheartedly believe that at the intersection of talented people and positive intentions, amazing things can happen.

Credibility and Expertise

Galileo has been operating summer camp programs for over 15 years. As the most attended summer program in the Bay Area, we’ve built partnerships with world-class organizations including The Tech Museum of Innovation, Maker Education Initiative, Youth Digital, and Klutz.

Quality Programs

Galileo’s mission—and how that mission is carried out —is the backbone of the summer camp experience. Galileo summer camps reflect a year-round company investment, including a full-time curriculum development team and our own pedagogy, the Galileo Innovation Approach.

Commitment to Camper Inclusion

We believe in camp—and innovation—for all kids. That's why, every year, Galileo awards more than 2,000 weeks of specially priced camp through our financial assistance program.

Best Place to Work

Galileo has been ranked one of the Best Places to Work in the Bay Area by the SF Business Times for eight years running and over 97% of our summer staff say they would recommend working for us. At Galileo, you can expect thoughtful, personalized mentorship designed to help you achieve your goals.

What Job Is Right for You?

Galileo offers a wide range of opportunities to match your skills, experience and goals. We hire hundreds of camp staff every year, and applications open in early December for the following summer.

We also begin hiring each September for 6-9 month seasonal positions (based in the Bay Area with a January start date) on our People Operations, Customer Service, and Warehouse teams. 

We review applications for our Camp Director team all year and post positions for year-round HQ jobs as they become available.
