"Camp BYLR was the most amazing and memorable experience. My favorite part was everything! Interacting and meeting like minded positive people who want to LIVE a big full life. The endurance challenge pushed me to keep going, not stop or settle. I completed 4 rounds and just kept going to go to the next level for Silver. It was not a question and just did it. I was focused with constant forward movement. I loved learning new things from all of the speakers and that we were able to implement them immediately in real time in the challenge. The group was so kind, positive and inclusive. An amazing group of people and it was an honor to be part of the first BYLR camp experience that I will always remember. The speakers were so good. Can't wait for next year!"
"My main reason for coming to camp was to be inspired to dial up my life and raise my bar and do more and be more. The endurance challenge, ice plunge and Jesse’s words and energy! I’m truly so grateful that he gives his time to do things like this. Speakers were great. Especially the diversity of it. I liked the size of the group. I’ve been to Tony Robbins and this was better in my opinion. "
"The entire weekend was an experience. All of the components, combined with the "adult summer camp" environment and the BYLR community that made Camp BYLR an experience that I can hands down say has been my favorite personal growth event to date! "
"The combination of the speakers showing up with tangible content and being able to apply that immediately was awesome! The synergy of the speakers was off the charts. Each message connected and there was a clear path to integrate that into my life."
