Young women from all around the world share meaningful experiences and gain confidence at Deluxe Life Skills Camp.
Confidence Building Camp
How often do we experience transformative events that leave us saying: “I remember when…”? Once a year, 20 young women experience a life-changing week at the Inn on the River, mastering comprehensive skills they will use for a lifetime.
Deluxe Life Skills is not just another camp! Deborah King and a team of image, etiquette, and communication experts deliver unparalleled instruction targeted to address the unique needs of each participant at this powerful program. This modern day finishing school focused on leadership development covers everything from Introductions to Handshaking, Nonverbal Communication to Networking, Time Management to Electronic Etiquette, and Wardrobe Building to Posture. Deluxe Life Skills delivers practical tools that every woman should have in her arsenal.
The women who attend Deluxe Life Skills come from a wide range of backgrounds all around the world. Despite their diversity, the women come together seeking one thing: increased confidence. A few attendees come with a friend or relative, but most arrive at the program alone. Each young woman arrives with slightly different expectations (and fears!), but—without fail—each woman leaves this incredible week having made new friends, often establishing relationships that will last a lifetime.

Deluxe Life Skills Camp Testimonials
“The week at Final Touch is more than words. Each girl brings a story to tell and instills a part of life to focus on with each other. I will forever be grateful for each conversation, and for each session. The week reminds you of your worth, and brings to attention a much needed focus on etiquette and class. Thank you again for the days at the Inn on the River.”
“You have profoundly and permanently changed every aspect of my life for the better, and I will forever be grateful for it. What you accomplish in the course of a week is truly miraculous!”
“So often we are told to be confident, and yet we aren’t taught how. Here we learned how to boost our power and be taken seriously without giving up our warmth and approachability. How to hold our chin level with the ground and still smile. This week was about so much more than changing how other people see us, it was about changing how we see ourselves, and how we can take everything we have learned and walk back into the world and navigate it with civility at the heart of everything we do. We learned dining etiquette and how to boost our authority and appearance through our wardrobe. We learned the importance of dressing for our body type, the power of a first impression, and how to make a good and lasting one. We learned how to hold ourselves both visually and in our own esteem. Entering into this experience, I wouldn’t have thought that a week could change a person with any level of depth or permanence. Yet that it what I saw happen in every woman at this camp including myself. Not only has Final Touch given me the beginnings of a myriad of skills, it has instilled in me a desire to keep developing those skills and inspired me to work towards not just a career or a family or a certain social standing but towards becoming the woman I want to be.”
“You and your wisdom continue to bless our family. Just this past week we were trying to explain to our 7-year-old the apparent dichotomy of ‘do not worry about what other people think of you, be true to yourself’ and ‘having good manners, because of how other people will feel around you.’ Our daughter who attended Deluxe Life Skills, was able to explain it clearly, ‘Deborah King taught us….’ and then she explained about avoiding drawing attention to oneself (and why!) and various methods for including others, keeping your own integrity intact and so on. It was a very powerful thing. Her dad and I agree that the money we spent this past summer was one of the best investments ever made in her future as well as in our own family’s well-being.”
“I thoroughly enjoyed all the information I learned, and I enjoyed meeting you and all the other amazing woman this past week. Now that I am back in Chicago I find myself non-stop talking about the program and using the information I learned in my day to day life and during my days as an intern. Without a doubt, attending your school was one of the best things to happen to me. It is extremely hard to put into words just how great you are and how informational the class was. Like I mentioned to you, I told my dad I did not want to ever leave. Regards and a BIG thank you!”
“I am delighted to report what a positive difference Deluxe Life Skills has made in the life of my daughter, as well as, the impact on our family dynamics. You were truly able to touch the heart of my daughter and enabled her to see her challenges in a different light, resulting in greater confidence and a brighter outlook all together. For that, I am indebted and so grateful! [My daughter was] willing to engage in conversation and appeared certain she has something to contribute and a readiness to enjoy what others might share without losing herself. What a nugget of gold! Thank you for reaching our daughter in a way we have not been able to as her parents. Of course, mom, dad and siblings enjoyed learning some of the proper behaviors at the dinner table, too. Our family was definitely positively affected upon our daughter’s return and I am so very grateful for you and your program!”
“Thank you for such a wonderful week. I learned so much about having poise and confidence with everything I do. There is so much more than walking and talking that goes into being a lady. It takes thinking differently to change one’s behavior, so when we encounter conflict and roadblocks we will be able to grow around it and keep our eyes fixed ahead, not on our past. After all, our scars tell a story. I really appreciated having the opportunity to learn everything you taught us this past week. I met so many lovely ladies at Deluxe Life Skills camp and would highly recommend it to everyone. Thank you again for such an amazing experience.”
