"Working at Galena Creek made this summer one of the best of my life"

Working at Galena Creek made this summer one of the best of my life. At first, I was nervous to make the 21 hour flight over from Kenya and considered backing out on numerous occasions, however I am extremely glad I did not. From day one, everyone was inviting and invested at making my time in Galena Creek memorable. Everyone I was living with was really nice and although there was 8 of us in the house it never felt overcrowded or uninviting. Kenny and Gwen took the time to show us around and teach us the basics of what was needed which was great! It was definitely also quite stressful, having to work with kids aged 8-14, five days a week, but we always took time to de-stress and reflect. However, I am grateful for the skills I gained in environmental education and working with children. Reno is also such a great city! There is always something to do at really cheap prices and the location of the house makes it easy to go into Tahoe often. I definitely appreciate everyone who worked with me this summer to make it so enjoyable, and I have made amazing friends from this experience.

"I gained so much experience from the programme"

I’m just writing to thank you for organising my internship in Reno this summer. I had the most amazing time I met some great kids and made friends for life. The work as a camp counselor/ environmental educator was very challenging at times but so rewarding. I gained so much experience from the programme and seen some amazing places at the weekends! Gwen and her team were so professional and accommodating. My summer in Reno is one I will never forget. Thanks again!
