PRAISE FOR GET REAL
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
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!
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 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 loved Get Real! It was a great experience for me and it helped me a lot with stress and fears. Get Real was a great change in my life. It was really fun, and a weekend to remember.
