Summer Camp Operations Coordinator

Galileo Learning - Multiple Locations - Full time

Love the details? Get deep satisfaction from a job well done? Love helping things run smoothly? Find delight in supporting the administrative needs of a team and providing excellent customer service? Obsessed with check lists and office organization?

The Operations Coordinator is the operational heart of each Galileo camp site. This leadership role sets the tone for service mentality and work ethic for every other camp staff member, and role models the flexibility required at camp—there is no job too big or too small. There is a lot of work, and an emergence of anticipated and unanticipated needs. Perfect for detail-oriented administrative masters.

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.

ABOUT GALILEO

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 lot to do and not a lot 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. Our camp staffers bring camp magic to life—for campers, and for themselves.
