Green SuperCamp Bali Raps!

July 16th, 2012

Twelve year old Flynn confidently exited through the International airport departure gate, heading off to a foreign country for an experience of a lifetime at the Green SuperCamp Bali!

Saying goodbye to our son at five in the morning, then watching him leave Australia, knowing that we would not be able to speak to him for over a week, left us with a feeling of tremendous pride… although we were struggling with letting him go.

Focus...

... self confidence...

... determination!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

When Cathy and I learnt about the Green SuperCamp, we immediately knew that it would have tremendous character building benefits for our kids. We wanted to share their experiences on our Enterprise For Kids blog for our readers, as we strongly feel that the skills, values and knowledge that the Green Super Camp instils into kids are the same key attributes that will build future leaders and entrepreneurs.

Here is Flynn’s reflection of his camp in his own words!

Supercamp was an absolutely awesome experience!

 

      

 

 

 

 

 


 

 

Supercamp was an absolutely awesome experience!

The biggest challenge that I faced was going to Bali on my own without my parents. I just knew that I wanted to go on the Green SuperCamp, and to do that I had to go on my own.

I loved trying all the fun activities like mud wrestling, high ropes course, Balinese dancing and seeing all the zoo animals.

              

I became friends with kids from all over the world. There were kids from America, Australia, Bali, Indonesia, London, India, New Zealand and Japan. Everyone there were really nice, they were happy and they persevered with all the challenges. I liked everyone at the Green SuperCamp!

One of my favourite activities was the mud fighting because I learnt self defence and I learnt how to throw people over my back. This activity taught me the importance of perseverance and to never give up.

Learning...

... the key to success!

              

We were taught how to use Quantum strategies to think and learn. As a result my reading has become seven times faster.

The Bali Green SuperCamp was a fantastic experience. I think that everyone should have a chance to go!

Check out this video of our enlightened Flynn the night he arrived home from camp!

As parents we have noted a number of positive changes in Flynn since the camp.

Team Building...

... responsibility and care!

 

 

 

 

At his school, the teachers have commented that Flynn has been making a real effort and that he has been keeping away from any sort of mischief. He has taken to reading books (which is something he normally avoids!), so much so that he has reached this term’s reading goal in only three weeks! He has an air of confidence and purpose with the things he does. This is evident with his responsibility with chores and with his focus and efforts when playing weekend soccer. Flynn has been easy to get along with at home and appears to be very happy with life!

Warriors!

    What a great review, and it sounds like it was a great expereince. I love Flynn’s introductory response to the video, and I hope the momentum is maintained.

      Hey Linda,
      So far Flynn is going great guns. He had such a good time that he is already planning for next year. Amber will be the right age then, so I’m sure we’ll have 4 kids wanting to go in 2013.

      The world IS his oyster! We’ve loved hearing the stories about the Green Super Camp and the friendships he made. Flynn’s learning has accelerated and we hope lots of other children get a chance to experience what Flynn, Kaitlin and Jai have experienced.
      The Green Super Camp truly was an awesome experience.

    Wow Flynn! You have come back super pumped from supercamp! Loved the video and the confidence you showed. It seems the benefits for you have reached into lots of corners of your world. So glad to hear about the reading improvements…after all, being able to access information is very powerful and will stand you in such good stead no matter what you decide to do in life…and I really believe you can do anything you set your mind to!!!!

      Hey Trace,
      Flynn was super pumped. He has made such improvement in all areas, so it’s very cool. We have been showing him all of these comments, so he is finally getting an understanding of how things flow to all corners of the world. Thank you for commenting and encouraging our son. I know he appreciates it too.

      Hi Roma,
      No risk, no gain. We knew we would miss Flynn and as any parents would be, we were a little worried to have him go off without us, but luckily a lovely gentleman was accompanying his daughter to the camp and took Flynn under his wing. He had a great adventure.
