PRAISE FOR GET REAL
At first I didn’t want to go to Leadership Camp but when I got there, I was so happy I went. There’s nothing like it, everybody there is so amazingly different. It also helped me in life to really get real.
I am so grateful for the weekend I have spent on the Get Real camp, you have helped me become me and not just something my friends want me to be. This would have to be the best gift anyone can give to someone like me. I am honored to have spent the time together that we had. You have helped me so much in the three days in which you showed me the world and who I am.
It’s a great experience full of adventure and excitement, a place to make friends with new people and be yourself.
This weekend was AWESOME!!! When I came to this camp I was stressed out a lot and wasn’t connected with my inner self very well. I hid my true self under layers of insecurity. Now I have ripped these layers away and have realised what sort of person I really am and that what I have been doing wasn’t really being myself. I loved this experience in all ways the only thing I could improve on was myself. I have been told that I’m beautiful, innocent, fun, persistent, loving, and a courageous, strong person. I have sorted out some issues that will really help me in life.
Originally I was sceptical about how Get Real would effect me. But after attending the weekend I met some amazing people who I hope will remain my life-long friends. I feel the weekend has given me an excellent feeling of self-worth and increased self-esteem, as I had to cope with issues and environments significantly outside the boundaries of my comfort zone. Thank you so much for this amazing experience which I will carry with me for my whole life!
Get Real has been a blessing for me. It has been an experience that has enlightened me about emotions, thoughts and actions. I am now a better person and I am ready to face the world with any challenge because I know that I will be able to face it. All because of Tam, Sarah, Brett, Dex and Angel. It has been a gift for me and an experience that I will keep in my heart.
The weekend has made me feel free and safe with everyone I meet. The coaches are such good examples and have helped me set goals for my life.
I loved the weekend! It gave me the chance to make friends with people from another country and also I finally got to find the real me. My favourite part about it was the campfire night because it was cool to burn away all the fake beliefs the group had… And we got to roast marshmellows! ☺ Doing the processes with the other teenagers was really good because it gives you help and guidance, but you feel like you are helping and motivating your partner. Hearing all the positive comments people gave me was so inspiring and it gave me the self confidence I needed. All the coaches and Tamsyn were all beautiful people that helped me through any difficulties I faced. I love you guys ☺ Thank you so much.
Before Get Real I was self harming and hating life. I now have the realisation that I am better than that. I’m not just my body, I am not my thoughts. I have Tam to thank, she does everything gracefully and with love.
My experiences of this weekend were truly wonderful and I had the most fun time I’ve had in a long time. I love it, it just makes you feel so great and light and worthy and that you can do anything. I love all of you here at Get Real you are all so true and real and I love you all! My process was awesome it got so much stuff off me and most of it wasn’t even mine. I went into my power centre very well and I coped with the situation really well. The things I realised this weekend was that I can do anything and that I am awesome also that I am successful and can do anything… it’s awesome! I can do it, and I love these camps!
