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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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!

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.

My experience here has been great!  I have really enjoyed it.  It’s something new and I’m definitely coming back!! ☺  My process was my first and it was really intense.  It covered something I thought wasn’t an issue anymore… but it obviously was.  I’ve realised a lot about myself.  There was a lot of self pity and self judgement and negativity towards myself and the way I think about myself it was SO surreal!  I am truly inspired and will most definitely continue on forever and ever and ever!  For sure!

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.
