PRAISE FOR GET REAL
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.
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.
I thought the Get Real weekend was really awesome, I learned a lot about the tools and the process and I really learned how to relax. I thought that all the kids and the coaches were really awesome and supportive. I would really love to come to another Get Real, it really boosted my confidence and made me realise there are others like me.
Leadership Camp has been so fun, I’ve learnt how to deal with emotions and bad things, and how to deal with limiting beliefs.
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.
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
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.
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!
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!
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!
