Why our Kids Wanted to Attend the Green SuperCamp!

July 11th, 2012

We were delighted that our three eldest children were able to attend this year’s Green SuperCamp in Bali. They had amazing life changing experiences that have left them with new understandings and beliefs about themselves that will remain with them forever.

Each of our kids applied for a Green SuperCamp scholarship. The scholarships would help us cover the cost of the camp. Kaitlin, Jai and Flynn each wrote why they wanted to attend the camp.

We are very inspired by the passionate words that they each wrote in their applications. Below we have some words from Kaitlin, and we are very proud of her passion and talent in getting her message across to the organisers of the Supercamp.

Here’s what Kaitlin wrote…

“I am the eldest of seven children in my family. We have been brought up to strive for excellence and to aim as high as we can. My parents have always been determined to give us kids the best opportunities possible to get the best out of life.

This year I have started year 11, and have found it quite difficult. I have been held up by limitations of my time and motivation. I would love to attend the “Green Super Camp” in order to break these barriers. I want a life where I can be a role model and inspiration for my siblings and others. I want to be able to contribute to the world and show so many people a way to be free, but I’m still trying to work out how to get there.

Kaitlin Flying like a fox!

I’m so keen to develop a mindset for success. I want to meet new people from around the world, and absorb their confidence and energy. My goal is to become a school prefect or Head girl and to be accepted into University. To do this I need to \understand and learn about myself. I want to know what it takes to be a leader and to be confident in myself to be one.

If I receive this Scholarship, I would be determined, open and ready, to absorb all the information possible for me to be the best person I can and to motivate others to be the same. This is an experience of a lifetime, and I’m ready for it now.”

You will have to wait for the next blog to discover what each of them learnt from their camp experience! Until then…….

    Awesome Kaitie! You are an inspiration already!!…I know the supercamp gave you the opportunity to discover so much about yourself and to use these insights, to indeed, be the best you can be. The world is at your feet and I know you have it in you, to grab it with both hands. I look forward to watching you continue to grow and blossom. X

      Hey Trace,
      Showed Kaitlin your comments. I think a private smile means she’s chuffed!
      She’s already blossoming, so we too are looking forward to her future endeavours.

      Hi Nan and Pop,
      Kaitlin hopes you are around ’til she has kids, then you can have lots of “great” grandkids keeping you on your toes!

    What a beautiful – responsible letter Kaitlin. You certainly have the right attitude to achieve the things you want. I am sure there would be quite a few adults that could learn from your comments. Well done.
