Here's what participants are saying about their camp experience

“The teachers were amazing and the subjects were intriguing. Loved it!!”

“The camp is way chill and offers a lot of freedom. You can get to know people better because of smaller groups.”

“I loved that there were so many chances to participate and express yourself and a lot of time to mingle and get close to other people.”

“The most effective learning experience for me has been with other campers share experiences that I can relate to.”

“I've realized that habits are the best and easiest way to live life because it's a lot harder to use will power to make every decision, but if I have good habits then good choices are so much easier to make.”

“I loved the pens, backpacks, and books that you gave us. I like how it wasn't about church—it was actually about goals and setting them. I liked the games, and the counselors are really nice, and we're on a first name basis with them.”

“The classes were fun, inspiring, and insightful. I loved the hike! Normally, I hate hiking but I decided to have a proactive attitude and had the best time.”

“I felt like the hike was a physical and tangible representation of the journey I'm trying to take. The whole way I was thinking about my goals and thinking, ‘If I can finish this hike, I can finish anything I want!’”

“I enjoyed when our team split off on our own and our leaders gave us a lesson and background. It really got me thinking about my priorities.”

“I learned a lot! I already notice how it's affecting my life and how it will down the road.”

Here's how the camp experience has motivated participants

“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.”

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

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

“I want to be proactive. I stress out a lot, and being proactive will help me think “win-win.” I want to stop competing with everybody.”

“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.”

“I want to use the habits to improve my relationship with my little brother. We don't get along very well, but I've been inspired by the stories of change that I've heard from my group members.”

“I'm most excited to live the very first habit (be proactive) because I used to be a complainer, but now I'm going to be able to make more friends.”

“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.”

“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.”
