Summer Program Director, Seattle Area, (2023)

Galileo Learning, LLC

This is a Full-time position in Seattle, WA posted January 26, 2023.

Galileo is looking for Program Directors to lead Camp Galileo sites for the 2023 season. Summer Program Directors (aka “Camp Directors”) are outstanding leaders who assume overall leadership of one summer day camp location, including staff management for a team 10-50+ employees, day-to-day operations, and creating a joy-filled summer camp culture. 

Galileo Learning brings best-in-class educational programs to tens of thousands of kids each year through in-person summer day camps across the country and after-school programs for low-income students in the San Francisco Bay Area. We believe the world needs innovators and that innovation can be taught. 

We value divergent thinkers who bring various experiences and viewpoints to the table at Galileo. Research shows that while men apply to jobs when they meet an average of 60% of the requirements, women and other underrepresented people tend to only apply when they match all criteria. Even if you don’t necessarily meet every checkbox in the job description, but you think you have what it takes, we encourage you to still apply.

  • Demonstrated leadership experience (management experience a plus) and ability to work collaboratively
  • Openness to feedback and a desire to grow professionally
  • Ability to work part-time in winter and spring (8-12 hours per week), and full-time in summer
  • Ability to maintain an excellent work ethic, a high level of energy, and exceptional enthusiasm each day
  • Flexibility to meet changing needs and demands while balancing multiple tasks efficiently
