    You get to work with amazing staff members to create an amazing summer not only for yourself but also for the campers you'll spend time with. You get to do skits, play games and just hang out with everyone and it just a ton of fun. You can help kids make really cool projects but the coolest thing is that they learn about the GIA innovative mindset an process and at first, it kind of weird and awkward and a little bit forced but soon you'll start integrating it into your own life as well. I feel like I came out of this 8-week experience more confident and ready to chase after my dreams after a summer of fun and supportive staff members.


    Sometimes the hours are very long but I think despite that it still a very worthwhile experience!

    Difficult Interview


    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Galileo Learning.


    There was a group interview which included demonstrating a game or song to other interviewees and then a one on one interview. Questions were very camp-focused so it would help if you have experience as a camper or counselor.
