Company: Galileo Learning
Location: San Mateo
Posted on: June 22, 2018

Job Description:

-- Love working with and having an impact on kids? Have loads of energy and stamina? Interested in education and project-based learning? Ready to take your group management skills to the next level in an amazingly fun summer job? Summer Camp Counselors are the single most consistent presence in the experience of each Camp Galileo camper, and so have the greatest potential impact on each camper---s summer. This responsibility requires careful attention to the physical and emotional safety of each and every individual camper within a team, and to the overall development and formation of the group as a whole. Learn more about this role and working at Galileo in our jobs video gallery. We value having divergent thinkers who bring various experiences and viewpoints to the table at Galileo. We strongly encourage members of underrepresented groups 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 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. Our camp staffers bring camp magic to life---for campers, and for themselves. -- 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. We manage to keep this level of performance expectation high in a relaxed environment; we take our work, but not ourselves, seriously. -- Being a Galilean means jumping into action to bring camp magic to life. Depending on the day, that could mean donning a tutu for a skit, creating a gorgeous sign that highlights the Galileo Innovation Approach, or playing a board game with two campers to build connection. 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. -- SHARED VALUES AND EXPECTATIONS
