A specific character development camp has been developed based on, the best-selling book and film by Jim Stovall, called The Ultimate Gift. It tells the story of twenty-four-year-old Jason Stevens and the life lessons he gets taught the hard way. When Jason receives word that his billionaire great uncle, Red Stevens, has passed away, he eagerly awaits his portion of the fortune. Like his other greedy, unappreciative relatives, Jason seems to only care about his financial gain. When it is finally Jason’s turn to collect his inheritance, Mr. Hamilton, Red Steven’s lawyer and best friend, provides him with a very different fate. Prior to his death, Red recorded a series of video messages, describing twelve tasks that Jason must complete in order to receive his ultimate gift. Through a year long journey, Jason discovers life-changing lessons, forges meaningful relationships that he never knew could exist, and learns to give back to others in need.
