OVERVIEW/JOB DESCRIPTION/GENERAL DESCRIPTION

Passionate about working with and having an impact on kids? Believe the world needs innovators, now more than ever? Ready to get outdoors, and have a career-defining summer learning the high-demand skill of hands-on program development? Have a love for art, science, outdoor play, team-building or education? Consider a role at our newly redesigned, COVID-safe camp—same joyful Galileo vibe, with thoughtful new safety precautions for all.

 

Group Instructors are the most consistent presence in the experience of each Camp Galileo camper. They spend the entire camp day supporting their group of campers and providing instruction for fun, engaging projects and activities. They’re responsible for bringing the GIA to life, and have the greatest potential impact on each camper’s summer. This responsibility requires partnering with Summer Interns and the Camp Director to bring careful attention to the physical and emotional safety of each and every camper within a team, and to the overall development and formation of the group as a whole.


Group Instructors come from a wide variety of academic and professional backgrounds. Great group instructors are: elementary and middle school teachers drawn to STEM/STE(a)M; college students looking for education-oriented professional development opportunities and classroom experience; youth development specialists and counselors seeking mission-driven work with students; informal educators, coaches, artists, scientists and makers who are excited to share their passions with kids. We welcome your application, even if you do not feel you meet all of the requirements listed below.


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