Where do you see yourself in 5 years? Whether you’re working towards a career as a principal, starting your own business, founding a school, or working with an international NGO, becoming a Galileo Camp Director can be an invaluable component of your professional development. As a Camp Director, you’re at the center of your own buzzing hive of innovation, hiring your staff, managing their professional development, overseeing camp operations, building relationships with parents and members of the community, and inspiring campers from preschool to middle school to explore and fail without fear. Plus, you’ll develop your camp’s own personal flavor, creating the traditions and culture that make your slice of Galileo one of a kind.
