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

“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 like the closeness you get when the classes are smaller and there is more opportunities to share.”

“The classes were all really great and the activities were BOMBIN'. Like seriously, SO fun. The friending thing was GREAT.”

“This has been really effective, surprisingly.”

“I really enjoyed everyone's enthusiasm throughout each day. It made the camp great.”

“The speakers have been really interesting, so yeah, that was amazing.”

Here's how the camp experience has motivated participants

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

“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.”

“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.”

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

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

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