HOW WE PLAY
Get Real addresses the challenges of young people today & empowers the carers & professionals who work with them. It’s practical, emotional empowerment that changes lives.
Some of the organisations we have worked with…
PRAISE FOR GET REAL
The Get Real experience has been an awesome, even though it was my first time I still felt like I fit in with all the other participants. For all those struggling with emotional dilemmas I highly recommend attending.
I think that Get Real is great for kids, teens and adults. I felt like I could trust everyone and they would keep everything confidential. I loved letting my emotions go by painting, drawing and talking. In Get Real you make lots of friends – We had a lot of fun!
It was easily 100 times better than I expected, it was an awesome weekend and I’m looking forward to the next one… thanks for the weekend
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.
It’s a great experience full of adventure and excitement, a place to make friends with new people and be yourself.
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.
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.
What I got out of Get Real was to let your emotions be free. Don’t bottle them up because you will slowly crumble from the pressure. Let them be free, trust me you will feel a lot better.
Coming to Get Real has changed my life. The first time I came to these camps I was a troubled child and learning these tools has helped me change the way I see things and act. It has helped me stand up for who I am. It is because of Tam and Get Real that I am like I am today…. It wasn’t them that changed me, but it allowed me to change myself.
My mum really wanted me to go to Leadership Camp and she thought it would be good for me. I wasn’t convinced, I was so scared to meet new people. I went anyway thinking it would be really bad, but I’m so happy I did decide to go because I met some amazing people. It’s nothing like school at all, they are all really nice.
