Here's how the camp experience has motivated participants

“I'm going to focus on improving my relationship with ALL my family—parents, uncles, cousins, grandparents, siblings, etc. I have a long way to go, but because of the 7 Habits, I know which route I'm going to take.”

“I have learned to be positive and proactive and have used this all week. Whenever I think something mean, now I stop myself.”

“Habit 5 (seek first to understand, then to be understood) has helped me so much. Me and my dad don't listen to each other. I will try now.”

“I'm most excited to start living Habit #2 (begin with the end in mind). I'm ready to start planning my future.”

“Living the habits is going to improve my relationship with my parents. They see the potential in me, and I owe it to them to be nicer and more productive.”

“I want to incorporate first things first into my life because I know that my family, my school work, and my personal progress are important, but sometimes I don't treat them that way.”

“I'm going to incorporate first things first into my life because I need a better short term way of setting and keeping goals. Time to change five plus hours of computer games every day.”

“These habits are going to improve my relationship with my parents. Ultimately they are my most important relationship right now. My parents have achieved and they want me to achieve too.”

“I'm excited to be able to communicate better and realize that I can control my feelings.”

“I was bad at prioritizing before this camp, and I've learned a lot I plan to incorporate in my life.”
