Job Description

Excited to flex your creative muscles by running your own educational program for kids? Great at managing details and building relationships?

Imagine spending your summer as an Extended Care Coordinator, bringing to life a program as dynamic as our campers, ensuring they all find a space to feel at home and ensuring an experience parents feel great about. Extended Care Coordinators are responsible for ensuring a high level of camper safety, strong program delivery, and quality staff, camper, and parent experience at the end of the traditional camp day.

We value divergent thinkers who bring various experiences and viewpoints to the table at Galileo. We strongly encourage members of underrepresented groups to apply.

The camp environment is demanding, requiring intense dedication and work ethic from each staff member. Depending on the time of summer or the specific week or day, the needs of camp and resulting staff hours may vary. We seek and make offers to staff who we believe are capable of thriving in this environment and contributing to camp’s success.

The camp day runs, on average, 8 hours for Extended Care Coordinators. Extended Care Coordinators typically work 10am-6:30pm. Extended Care Coordinators may work with the Camp Director on prep prior to training and set-up days; this time may total up to 24 hours of prep time, no more than 8 hours in a day.

• Participate in two mandatory training and setup days in the days before camp starts

• Staff will be compensated at a different hourly training rate for online training and on-site setup/training
• Overtime will be paid at 1.5x the regular hourly rate in accordance with state and federal requirements

• Support Camp Director in managing all aspects of the Extended Care & lunch programs
• Support the Operations Coordinator to prepare and manage lunch, Extended Care capacity, paperwork and rosters, and more
• Work to improve Extended Care and lunch programs or accommodate specific campers, making changes as necessary

• Check in with Camp Director and other staff frequently to communicate staff, camper, and family needs
• Contribute to and participate in daily camp ceremonies and all-camp activities as necessary
