"Our son Darren seems to be naturally drawn to leadership opportunities and is often selected by groups he has participated in as the leader—both by supervising adults and by peers. We thought this camp would help him see and think about what traits are important in being a leader; how to set goals and priorities as he thinks about what he'd like to major in; how to be a great mission companion; and how to function well in work, society, church, family, etc. We thought it seemed like a focus that he would particularly enjoy due to his natural interests and tendencies.
"Darren absolutely loved attending. He doesn't often reread books, but the workbook and materials he got from your camp have stayed on his desk and/or night stand throughout the summer and are often open to different pages. I think he is reading and pondering the material he was given and enjoys the format in which it is presented. That is definitely a change for him, and I'm grateful that he is thinking about the material he received before his senior year as he prepares for his mission. He talks about the camp frequently when we drive past BYU and tells his younger brother that he should definitely plan on attending the camp. This is not how he usually is—so you must have really done an amazing job to have him rave about it and encourage his brother to attend!
"Thanks so much for providing such a wonderful opportunity for our son. He has only had very positive things to say about it! In fact, if he hadn't had to work the rest of the summer he would have gone back again. He loved it!"
