Summer Program Director

Receive excellent professional development and staff management experience as you create and lead your own hub of innovation while impacting your community this summer!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.Most Camp Directors have full-time jobs during the school year, and commit ~15 hours each week (mostly remotely) to their role pre-camp (February-May/June), with 1-2 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 Camp Director yearly timeline, and hear directly from past and current Camp Directors by checking out our website.A first year California Camp Director typically earns $12,000-$15,000, with up to 20-40% annual increases in subsequent years. In addition, we offer free camp or significant camp discounts to all Galileo staff.
