PRAISE FOR GET REAL
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.
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
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.
It’s a great experience full of adventure and excitement, a place to make friends with new people and be yourself.
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!
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.
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.
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!
I’m so glad I came to the Get Real camp. I learned how to deal with my emotions really well. It was very fun, thank-you.
