Here's what participants are saying about their camp experience

“I have always been interested in the 7 Habits and I love meeting new people, so it was a win-win.”

“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.”

“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 loved the speed that the material was covered in the classes, also the switch of teachers and the relaxed classroom was really good.”

“Overall this camp was great. I enjoyed the freedom we were given, so long as we act sensible. I also enjoyed not being forced to participate, but being kindly encouraged instead.”

“I did not expect everyone to be so fun and for me to learn so much; the camp exceeded my expectations.”

“I loved what I learned, the friends I made, and how everyone was so friendly and tried to get to know everyone.”

“I like all the social activities and enjoy how we all get to know people better and basically become a family.”

“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 really like the atmosphere at the camp and how everyone was not afraid of trying the Habits in and out of class situations.”

Here's how the camp experience has motivated participants

“These habits are going to help me improve my relationship with my mom. She tries hard to convince me to unplug, but I don't always see that.”

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

“I am going to work on doing first things first since I love planning and getting stuff done. But as much as I hate to admit it, I usually save the most important things for last, which leads to procrastination and bad grades.”

“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.”

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

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

“The habits are going to improve my relationship with myself. Before I came to this camp, I beat myself up a lot and I was really down on myself.”
