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. Camp Directors provide instructional supervision for staff, interact daily with families and community members, and are truly the face of Galileo in the communities they serve. 

 

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. We 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.

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.

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. 

 

Core Requirements

  • You're inspired by innovation education, youth empowerment, and creating safe, welcoming spaces
  • You're an experienced, creative, fun-loving educator.
  • You're a communicative, trustworthy leader. 
  • You’re an organized, problem-solving manager.
  • You’re ready to grow. 

 

Experience & Education

  • College graduate
  • Experience working with K-8th grade children
  • Demonstrated leadership experience
  • Staff selection and management experience a plus
  • Ability to work part-time in spring, and full-time in summer
  • Readiness to stick around: we find that our team and team members benefit from a 3 year minimum commitment

 

Camp Director Responsibilities

Most Camp Directors have full time jobs during the school year, and commit 10-15 hours each week to their Camp Director role pre-camp with 3-4 additional weekends of training. 

 

Pre-Camp (January-June)

Pre-camp hours are a combination of remote/independent work and on-site duties (local to your assigned camp location).

  • Attend week-long training in January, overnight Staff Management & Operations training in April, and get-togethers
  • Weekly phone check-ins with your manager (Area Director) starting in January
  • 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
  • Help develop and lead all staff training

 

During Camp (Mid-June-Mid-August)

Camps run for 5-8 weeks, starting as early as early June and ending as late as mid-August, depending on location

  • Work full-time preparing for camp the week before camp begins, often at your camp location
  • Work on-site full-time, Monday-Friday for 5-8 weeks (depending on the duration of your camp; likely 55-65 hours/week)
  • Run daily operations of camp, creating a high energy, fun and creative experience for campers
  • Lead and manage staff, ensuring quality instruction, high energy, and overall performance
  • Communicate daily with parents and manager (Area Director)
  • Manage costs, including supplies and staffing
  • Develop relationships with facilities partners and ensure facility is well maintained and left in excellent condition

Dog Walker needed - Private Dog Park in Pacifica

Do you LOVE running around all day, with lots of excitement, paws, dirt, action and rowdy pups under your calm command? 

Then we'd love for you to join our Pack and become a dog walker/trainer extraordinaire! 

Top Dog SF is looking for a Pack Leader to transport and supervise our client dogs at our private dog park in Pacifica. We require someone with LOTS of energy, who is not afraid to drive the nutty streets of San Francisco SAFELY, and whose positive attitude can turn challenges into victories.

  • Be physically able to walk 4-5 plus miles a day, lift or carry large dogs if needed and walk up several flights of stairs to take dogs in and out.
  • Clean, valid Driver's License

This is a great position for someone who has daytime hours free.

BENEFITS and WAGES: Competitive wage and paid professional training. After 2 week paid trial period, hourly wages start at $17.00. Depending on performance, wage can increase to $20.00/hour after successful completion of training and introductory period. Extra income possible with overnight care after successful completion of introduction period and completion of our dog walker certification program.

We are a happy, hard working team who share the common goal of making sure our pack is exercised, trained and returned to their parents better than they were going out. We look forward to hearing from you.
