Build Confidence, Motivation & Discipline.
Cooking Camp. Animal Camp. Life Skills Camp.
Fix-It Camp. Legos Camp. Travel Camp. Help People Camp.
Diesel Mechanic Camp. Architect Camp. Engineering Camp.
It doesn’t matter what you call this Camp. It’s designed to do one thing: use your child’s unique skills and passions to build confidence, motivation, and purpose. What are YOUR child’s unique interests and passions? We will build on those and show him or her how to be wildly successful!
You have a child who is bright, but not motivated. Your child probably won’t pursue the traditional path so he falls through the cracks. Trying to fit him into the box or be like other kids causes him to shut down, become angry or apathetic, and lose his confidence.
YOU MUST LISTEN TO THIS PODCAST FIRST: “7 Ways to Motivate Kids.” It will explain the process we use with specific examples. Click here for the podcast.
WHY ARE WE PROVIDING THIS CAMP?
Until now, everyone has spent all their time trying to fix your child’s weaknesses. It only makes your child shut down, become unmotivated or angry, and lose confidence. Especially when they get compared to peers and siblings.
Instead, we are going to accentuate your child’s strengths and show them how to use their natural gifts, talents, and passions to help others through volunteer projects, internships, or running their own business.
WHAT ARE OUR GOALS?
CONFIDENCE | MOTIVATION | PURPOSE | HAPPINESS | JOY
Imagine your kids in a supportive environment where they feel accepted, valued, important, smart, and capable. We will get your kids actually helping us and feeling important. We’ve already placed an order from a Camper to buy her home-made salsa! We’ve got a Camper who’s going to speak a foreign language with my son and plan ways to monetize their love for travel.
As kids get older, they need a mentor. My son, Casey, has a way of connecting with kids because he’s only 24 and has walked in their shoes. Kids look up to him (and not just because he’s 6’2″!) and listen to him. And to be honest, I’ve heard the advice he gives kids and it’s spot-on fantastic.
Before working with 1,500 of these kids like yours, I spent fifteen years learning brand marketing from the best corporations so I can teach your kids brand positioning, marketing strategy, customer insight, product development, pricing, and business lessons you only learn from real world experience. Plus my greatest gift is seeing gifts inside kids and sparking that internal motivation and confidence.
Casey will be teaching your kids practical life skills that they just don’t learn in school. He is going to instill in your kids the qualities of successful people:
Fortitude, resilience, persistence, delayed gratification, self-discipline, initiative, plain old hustle and hard work. Successful people learn from failures, take calculated risks, make no excuses, and are generous with others. I want your kids to become financially savvy. But even more so, I want them to be savvy with decision-making and relationships so they don’t succumb to peer pressure.
Your kids have big hearts so we want to teach them how to use that great quality, whether it’s serving others through a business or a charity/service project. And yes, some want to be millionaires and that’s awesome–because our goal is to donate a million dollars to charity! How cool is that!
Casey will also teach your kids one critical skill that will be worth the entire cost of the Camp: How to create specific, written goals. People with specific, written goals are intentional and accomplish more than others. Your kids will learn how to do this.
This isn’t about teaching your kids to make money. It’s about developing the character traits and confidence that come from building your own business or pursuing your passion. Plus your kids have big hearts so we’ll have use that as motivation.
Your kids don’t have to be budding entrepreneurs. Starting a business or service project is just a tool to get your kids using their particular gifts and passions.
WHAT IS DIFFERENT ABOUT THIS CAMP?
Your kids don’t learn well in classrooms from books so we’re going to learn outside while walking trails. Exercising and eating healthy is an important trait of successful people.
We will visit local businesses and charities to experience firsthand what makes their owners tick and their businesses thrive. I want your kids to feel the passion and hard work it takes to be successful in life, and the satisfaction of giving to others.
This is screen-free time. Nope, your kids won’t have access to their cell phones because we want to instill self-discipline and focus. And we’re going to show them that running their own business and serving others is far more stimulating than a screen.
Parents, I am going to teach you how to raise these kids differently. Because you are going to have to make some tough choices in what you value. Listen to the podcast noted above–this isn’t easy. It will make you uncomfortable.
Your kids will meet other like-minded kids they have something in common with–they’ll be inspired and motivated. And once they have a reason to be motivated and begin building something positive, guess what happens?
Their attitudes improve. Sibling fights fade away. Your kids kids have a reason to care about school and do well. No lectures or consequences will motivate your kids to care about school. You must spark internal motivation first.
* Many of your kids will feel anxious about coming to Camp. It’s new and different. And that always causes anxiety, even in me and I’m 51! Some of your kids are like me, an introvert. So this can be daunting. We know that and will put your kids at ease. My son has a way of connecting with kids that makes them feel comfortable.
WHAT AGE WILL THE KIDS BE?
It depends on the maturity of the child. While this will skew toward kids from 10-17, I know 8-year-olds who are mature and purposeful enough to benefit. If you email Kirk@CelebrateCalm.com with answers to these questions, I will give you an honest assessment of whether this is a good fit or not:
– Why do you think this would appeal to your child?
* SPECIAL NOTE * We have space and time to personally mentor about 20 kids across the country right now. Those spaces will fill quickly. Within a few days of officially announcing the Camps, we have filled half the spots already. The price will go up as demand increases and supply diminishes so reach out to us now.
WHAT DOES BOOTCAMP INCLUDE?
(1) BEFORE. We want to understand your kids inside and out. Upon registering, we will begin the process ASAP. We will email you a discovery document so that we can understand your child’s gifts, talents, struggles, and goals in-depth. We will also learn your goals and then customize a camp experience specifically for your child. So when your child walks into BootCamp, we will know him already. BootCamp begins the day you register. We’ll begin prepping your child for Camp and communicating so we can get a head start.
Most of the kids will come to Camp with a specific mission to help relieve anxiety and show off their gifts. One Camper is going to bring home-made salsa that I have already placed an order for!
(2) DURING. We will spend 11 hours personally mentoring your child:
Saturday 10:00am – 3:00pm
Break to process information and rest.
Saturday dinner together to brainstorm 6:30pm – 8:30pm.
Sunday 10:00am – 2:00pm
*I will pay for lunches and dinner while we are together, taking into account the fact that most of our kids are picky eaters!
(3) AFTER. Kirk will provide a detailed, written Action Plan at the end of BootCamp so that both kids and parents have a plan to continue the growth. Plus we will maintain contact with you and your kids for the rest of the year to help develop your kids’ ideas and answer questions.
BONUS: We will give you these three CD programs for FREE.
* Enjoy Your Strong-Willed Child: Stop Power Struggles
* Straight Talk For Kids
* Motivate Unmotivated Kids
