Training & Support

Camp Directors receive exceptional management training, setting them up to successfully run a fully-developed camp program and obtain future leadership positions. Support includes pre-season weekend retreats, coaching throughout camp, tools for managing camp operations, access to Galileo’s network of prominent educational leaders, and more.

The Camp Director role is a serious commitment but is designed to complement school-year employment or graduate school. Training kicks off with remote, part time work throughout the spring until you’re leading your team and campers full-time June – August.

I’m constantly amazed by the ripple effect Galileo continues to have in my life – I feel like there are lessons I’m still nurturing from my time with Galileo, along with the deeply ingrained ones that are embedded in my work. I’ve yet to have a more thoughtful, skillful and effective professional development support system than what I was provided with at Galileo.”
