Love doing whatever it takes, and performing a variety of tasks? Want the best summer job? Ever?

Galileo interns have a positive, solution-oriented attitude, initiative, flexibility, and exceptional service mentality.

Galileo’s mission is to develop innovators who envision and create a better world. We know it’s bold. We also know that we can’t achieve it without asking staff to be role models of an innovator’s mindset—visionary, courageous, collaborative, determined and reflective. It’s not always easy. Camp staffers work hard. Very hard. You can expect days in which there’s a ton to get done and not a ton of time to do it. But part of what makes our culture great is that no one is too proud to complete any task that needs doing. This isn’t your average summer recreation gig. Galileans are expected to take ownership of their own performance and make this place better every day. People with a can-do attitude thrive here and those with a victim mentality don't. And we manage to keep this level of performance expectation high in a relaxed environment; we take our work, but not ourselves, seriously. You don’t have to be an actor, musician, or know stupid human tricks to work for us. But you have to be willing to jump into a skit or song or dance at a variety show. You’ve got to know what it means to be a vital part of a team. You’ve got to want to grow. You’ve got to like to have fun at work. You have to smile – a lot – and you have to like to laugh. After all, we run summer camps. You get the point.
