Summer Camp Teacher, Science

Galileo Learning - Multiple Locations - Full time

Passionate about working with and having an impact on kids? Believe the world needs innovators? Ready to have a career-defining summer? Have a love for art, science, technology, team-building or education?

Lead Instructors are the staff most well-placed to ignite innovation for campers at Galileo. We believe that our approach to learning isn’t merely a pedagogy—it is a tool that will help shape the worldview of future innovators. Lead Instructors interact with their curriculum—planning ahead, reflecting daily and viewing improvements as opportunities. Lead Instructors bring to life Galileo's curriculum, thoughtfully created by our year-round curriculum design team. Lead Instructors are our ultimate partners in consistently looking for new ways to bring the Galileo Innovation Approach to our campers.

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.
