I am the Mum to Hayley  who participated in your camp on the weekend. The presentation that you and the other leaders did was fantastic and i was only a second away from getting up and joining the kids on the dance floor. The change that i have seen in Hayley from Friday to Sunday, has been absolutely amazing. She got so much out of being a part of Camp Awakening that i wanted to share it with you and your fabulous team.

Camp Awakenings changed my life, I use to cry all the time and I was so scared of myself and people because I thought no one wanted me and they all just laughed. I use to be the kid that could never stop smiling and then in my teens that changed and that smile that everyone complimented me on was gone. But after my amazing camp experience that smile is back and I’m so confident and I’m happy with myself and I show it in everyday life the bond you make with the other participants and leaders are something you will never lose.

I don’t really know where I’d be without this camp. Even though it was only over a few days, I learnt how to change and fix my thinking to more positive ways, I made some really good friends (Who have actually now helped me make a wide circle of friends) and have the confidence to be myself and try new things a lot more.

Camp was an amazing experience, I met so many amazing people, and it changed my outlook on life.

Thank you so much for all you have done for me and the rest of our camp, you and the team completely changed my life and i would not be here and as happy as i am without you.  :) ♥ xxxx

Thank you for the best experience of my life something I'll cherish forever. I live each lesson I learnt during my time on camp everyday in my life :) I love the continuous support and friendships I've made which will last a life time. Lots of love always ♥

Go team orange :)

I just really wanted to say thank you so much again for putting together such an amazing program and giving lots of teenagers (including me) the opportunity to take part in it. Camp Awakenings was such a great and positive experience, and it really has changed my whole life.

Firstly I want to take this opportunity to thank you for everything you and all the other leaders did for me over those 3 days as it was truly an amazing, life changing weekend that has changed my perspective on everything around me.

I just wanted to say thank you for making that weekend so amazing! I can assure you that it has been the most educated, humerus, crazy weekend and the best 3 days I have ever experienced :) I'm so happy in life now, I try so hard with making sure that all my friends, and family are safe and that they are feeling good about themselves and their lives.

I'd just like to thank you, the leaders and many of the Rotary clubs for making this camp happen and making it one of the best experiences.

Over the past few days I have thought about the camp quite often. Mostly about the people I met, what all of the sessions have taught me and the enjoyment.

I've mostly thought about how it has affected me and how it has turned my life around. Ever since I have left the camp site, all that has come to me has been negativity, I've told myself numerous times to be happy and not let anything get in the way of that, and it has worked every time! Gladly this is one of the many habits I have picked up from camp.

I’d still like to thank you and the others who had made Camp Awakenings possible. For all that you’ve done to myself and those I care about. I give you my loyalty and passion towards you and camp awakenings. (As much as that sounds really cliche or sucking up, ugh.)

I have taken the last few days to evaluate what had occurred in the camp and why it had made such an impact to me. To be honest as much as I tried to deflect the positivity it had grown on me, i’ve never had an experience in my life where such positivity would stream throughout the whole weekend.
