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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
This was awesome! I loved it! I really feel like a Leader now and that is great!
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!
It’s a great experience full of adventure and excitement, a place to make friends with new people and be yourself.
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!
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.
