ABOUT GALILEOGalileos mission is to develop innovators who envision and create a better world. We know its bold. We also know that we cant achieve it without asking staff to be role models of an innovators mindsetvisionary, courageous, collaborative, determined and reflective. Its not always easy. Camp staffers work hard. Very hard. You can expect days in which theres a ton to get done and not a ton of time to do it.
