Galileo is looking for program visionaries to direct current or new Camp Galileo and Galileo Summer Quest sites for the 2018 season. Summer Program Directors (internally referred to as “Camp Directors”) are outstanding educational leaders who assume overall leadership of a summer day camp location, including staff selection and management and day-to-day operations.

About Galileo

Founded in 2002, Galileo operates summer day camp programs at 50+ locations throughout the Bay Area, SoCal, and Chicago. Our mission is to develop innovators who envision and create a better world.

And we think kids with these skills are more likely to change our world and be the masters of their own.

We’ve 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. Being a Galileo Camp Director means joining an organization that is a model of innovative learning, with a company-wide commitment to camper inclusion and broadening our impact.

  • Help generate enrollment and staffing at your camp through various marketing and/or staff recruiting activities
  • With the People Operations team, hire top-notch staff by driving staff retention, interviewing candidates, and extending offers

WARNING: This won't sound like a real job. Don't freak out.

If your New Year's resolution was to find a job, do something meaningful that makes you happy, and use your dancing or customer service skills - we may be a  good match. We are looking for people to train to become Full Time Latin and Ballroom Dance instructors.

Are  you an Athlete, Customer Service Superstar, Classically trained dancer,  Unclassically trained dancer, Restaurant Host/Hostess, Barista, Public  Speaker, Musician, Theatre Geek, Amateur Filmmaker, Personal Trainer,  Camp Counselor, Majored in Changing Your Major, or if you just throw  really great house parties.... you may be what we are looking for. 

Brace  yourself: We are looking for "people skilled" people. Dance experience  is great, but "the people business" experience is key.
(See the WARNING above).

NOTE: This is a horrible job if you prefer:
1. Cubicles
2. Anti-social behavior
3. Very limited physical contact

Here's the pitch:
1. Send over a regular resume (see the warning above: no dance experience necessary)
2. From there, we bring in the best "people-people" for interviews.
3. For all of those selected, we immerse them in a comfort zone altering boot camp (paid training)
4. When ready, we transition them into full time dance instructors.... really.

WHAT WE TEACH:
Through  the training program you'll learn how to dance the Tango, Swing, Salsa,  Samba, and everything else you may have seen on TV. Our company (Arthur  Murray) has been teaching the world to dance since 1912. There are  nearly 300 locations all over the globe, and you have a chance to be  apart of some of the top schools in the world.

So if you're:
-sick of the cubicle jungle, the khaki jungle, or the food service jungle.
-looking for a new identity, a new challenge, or next-level social skills
-If you traded your time for a degree you want nothing to do with.
-If you're sick and tired of trading your artistic, athletic, or creative side for a 9 to 5...

We might be perfect job for you. All the perks of a creative dance job, with the security of:
- Full Time
- Medical/Dental
- Vacation Pay
- 401k

Send your resume to begin the process! 
PS:  This is a real job, real location, on Earth in the Lakeview neighborhood of Chicago. We have a website, a heartbeat, and we have a growing business that just happens  to be an incredible place to work.
