We also think kids who learn to explore and fail without fear:the essence of innovation:are happier, more creative and more confident when faced with lifes challenges. And we think kids with these skills are more likely to change our world and be the masters of their own.
It takes a village to bring best:in:class, ever:evolving camp programs to over 30,000 campers each summer. At HQ, we believe that we are Galileo; through the work of each contributor and team, we bring our values to life, and constantly make our company and culture better. Because here, values arent just lip service : we aim to be more visionary, courageous, collaborative, determined and reflective each day, and back that effort up with structure to ensure our success. People who work hard, seek feedback to improve their work and themselves, feel deeply accountable for excellent work product, and play very, very well with others tend to thrive in our culture. Complainers dont.
