What Teens Say About Discovery for Teens

What I had learned from this one week course have given me a new direction and perspective towards life. - Mikey

  I Initially didn’t want to go on Discovery because I thought it was going to be a type of boot camp for teens. Boy was I wrong, I told my Mum and Dad when I got home that “It Was The Best Week Of My Life”- Peter

The course taught me how to get along better with my family and taught me the value of respect. Since I’ve been home I feel things have improved within my family with less conflict. I am also working to change my attitude toward school and my teachers.” - Sam

I had the most amazing and life changing experiences at camp” - Morgan

Truly one of the best weeks of my life, having learnt things they don’t teach at school and doing things I never would have dreamed I would do” - Ethan

  The course has completely changed my outlook on life and has made a massive impact on others around me as well - Rebecca

I feel more positive about myself and that they have proved to me that if it’s possible for the world to accomplish, then it’s possible for me. - Eric

“Discovery gave me the opportunity to learn some new skills. I can now get up and speak confidently in front of others, and I learned how to support others in my team. Discovery also challenged me to give everything a go and when you do, to give it 100%.” - Michelle

What I had learned from this one week course have given me a new direction and perspective towards life. - Mikey

“I met lots of new people who made me feel welcome and made me feel part of what was going on. I made some really good friends who I am keeping in contact with by text and facebook. The Team Leaders and staff were amazing and really supportive and were always there to help us.” - Amy

I am now an Industrial Design major at Victoria University in Wellington; I'm getting pretty good grades (somewhere around an A- average) and am living a happy life. Discovery taught me so much about life, about the people that I interact with and about the things that I want to achieve. It was kind of like Inception, how the movie opens with De Caprio asking "What is the most resilient parasite? An Idea. A single idea from the human mind can build cities. An idea can transform and rewrite all the rules." That's what Discovery did for me, it rewrote the rules. - Ben

Before Discovery I wasn’t getting the support of friends or the knowledge on life.”  - Tom
