Galileo is looking for program visionaries to direct current or new Camp Galileo and Galileo Summer Quest sites for the 2020 season. Summer Program Directors (internally referred to as “Camp Directors”) are outstanding leaders who assume overall leadership of a summer day camp location, including staff hiring and management, day-to-day operations, and creating a joy-filled camp culture.

We value divergent thinkers who bring various experiences and viewpoints to the table at Galileo. We strongly encourage members of underrepresented groups and people of diverse backgrounds to apply.

Who are you? 



  • You’re inspired by Galileo’s mission and purpose. Innovation education, project-based learning, youth empowerment, and creating safe, inclusive spaces all speak to the very heart of who you are.


  • You’re an experienced, creative, fun-loving leader. You’re as comfortable resolving conflict between two campers as you are mentoring your staff or putting your own unique spin on a classic game. 


  • You’re communicative and trustworthy. As a relationship-builder and mentor, you measure your own success in large part by the success of those around you, and care deeply about helping them meet professional development goals. 


  • You’re an organized, problem-solving manager. You love fine-tuning operational logistics, ensuring program efficiency, and learning new strategies for driving overall performance. 


  • You’re ready to grow. You know that true mastery requires commitment, effort, thoughtful feedback, personal reflection, and implementation of lessons learned. 

 

Who are we?

We think the world needs innovators. We also think kids who learn to explore and fail without fear—the essence of innovation—are happier, more creative and more confident when faced with life’s challenges. And we think kids with these skills are more likely to change our world and be the masters of their own.Founded in 2002, Galileo operates summer day camp programs at 70+ locations throughout the Bay Area, SoCal, and Chicago. Our mission is to develop innovators who envision and create a better world, and we reach this mission through employment of our unique pedagogy, the . We’re ranked #1 for Best Places to Work in the Bay Area by the SF Business Times (and been on the list for ten consecutive years!), and were named one of Forbes’ Best Small Companies. Being a Galileo Camp Director means joining an organization that is a model of innovative learning, with a company-wide commitment to and broadening our impact. about our financial assistance program and other community efforts.

What’s the job, really?

Most Camp Directors have full-time jobs during the school year, and commit ~15 hours each week to their Camp Director role pre-camp (January-May/June), with 3-4 additional weekends of training. As summer rolls around, Directors work 55-65 hours each week during camp (and most camps run 5-8 weeks). For more details on this unique schedule, review the , and . 



  • You’ll brilliantly build, lead, and maintain your camp community. From mastering operations to nurturing and retaining staff to creating camp culture and traditions, you’ll work to identify and execute on your program vision, ensuring our campers have their most magical summers ever.  


  • You’ll hire, train, collaborate with, and develop a team of anywhere from 5-50+ summer staff. You’ll be a supportive manager with high expectations, who takes this part of your role seriously. You’ll actively evaluate potential—both strengths and areas of growth—and will thoughtfully push your team to greatness in ways that have an astounding ripple effect.


  • You’ll create and build partnerships like a boss. As the face of Galileo in the community you serve, you’ll work closely with your manager on navigating grassroots marketing efforts, local staff recruiting, your host school relationship, and consistently delivering exceptional service to our camper families. 


  • You’ll leverage existing (and carefully crafted) training and resources to masterfully manage your time and responsibilities, efficiently tracking your workflow details and calendar in the pre-season.

 

What are we looking for?


  • College graduate or equivalent work experience

  • Experience working with K-8th grade children

Benefits & Compensation



  • Financial reward. A first year California Camp Director typically earns $12,000-$15,000, with up to 20-40% annual increases in subsequent years. Galileo is unusual in that Camp Directors participate in—and benefit from—the financial success of their camps through our bonus program.


  • Lasting positive impact on kids, staff, families, and communities. As a Galileo Camp Director, you’ll develop meaningful, multi-year relationships with staff members, campers and families. You’ll inspire the spark of camp, helping kids see themselves as true innovators.


  • Leadership training & professional development. You’ll receive unique and exceptional training including weekend management training retreats, weekly individual coaching throughout the camp season, mentorship, and access to Galileo’s network of prominent educational leaders. Camp Directors are given the tools, framework, community, and support to take ownership of and implement a fully-developed program. 


  • Opportunity. As Galileo grows, we’re often looking for Regional Directors, curriculum creators, and other full-time staff. Successful Camp Directors are likely candidates for such opportunities. We also have an extensive list of recruiting partners, which connect our staff with outstanding opportunities outside of Galileo.


  • Community. You’ll become part of a current and former Galileo staff network of over 10,000 inspiring changemakers. Former Galileans stay connected, and have even gone on to create successful non-profit organizations together! Learn more about our staff .

Our Regional Directors are passionate about working with kids and making an impact. They think innovation is important—so important that it’s at the cornerstone of how they lead, motivate, and inspire their staff. They are effective project managers, detail-oriented operations specialists, and visionary entrepreneurs. They care about our culture, our work, our development, and our community efforts. They embody our values of being visionary, courageous, collaborative, determined, and reflective. They are Galileo.

We value divergent thinkers who bring various experiences and viewpoints to the table at Galileo. We strongly encourage members of underrepresented groups and people of diverse backgrounds to apply.

Who are you?



  • You live and breathe the Galileo mission. You believe in innovation. You believe that when kids are fearless, they learn and care more deeply. You believe that these fearless innovators will go on to change the world.


  • You’re a leader — a servant leader — at heart. You believe that the best managers are ones who serve and support their teams, and you measure your success in large part by the success of those around you. 


  • You’re a lifelong learner. Growth mindset is your mantra. You’re eager to build on and develop skills in project and people management.


  • You have an extensive hat collection. You wear many of them. You operate with an all-hands-on-deck mentality and understand that there’s no task too small, especially when your impact is so big.


  • You’re an adept time manager. Juggling isn’t just a party trick—it’s your specialty. You know when to switch gears from detail management to supportive mentorship.


  • You’re a glass-half-full hard worker. You’re committed to quality and are prepared to put in long hours when necessary. You take ownership over your own performance and strive to make Galileo—and yourself—better every day.

What are we looking for?


  • Bachelor’s degree or equivalent experience, advanced degree preferred

  • Experience in multi-site operational management, managing projects, programs, or services

  • Minimum 5 years experience working with K-8th grade range and managing people, ideally a team

  • Readiness to stick around: we find that our Regional Directors benefit from a 5 year minimum commitment

Benefits & Compensation


  • Base and bonus potential to be discussed during interview

  • Employee medical and dental benefits provided by Galileo; employee-paid dependent care and multiple ancillary benefits available

  • 401(k) provided after one year of employment; current Galileo contribution is 3%, with an employee contribution option

  • We believe that a balance between work and life is essential to happiness and success, so work hard and take the time you need; 25 personal days per year

  • We offer a significant camp discount to year-round and seasonal employees
