#GirlBoss – This week is centered around empowering your girl to take control of her own professional destiny. Campers will have the opportunity to learn hands-on from local women in a variety of different professions, and will be challenged to dream big about the ways in which they can become their own #girlboss one day.
HERstory – From the curiously compelling portraits of Frida Kahlo, to the inspiring bravery of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, we are excited to be celebrating these, and many other, influential women of history. Girls will be invited to partake in games, activities, and field trips that tell the stories of powerful women who have fought for their gender’s equality. We will create a community of girls supporting girls, and learn to appreciate the influential women in our personal lives along the way.
The Artist in You – At Girls Inc, we believe there is a beautiful mind and spirit inside every girl that walks through our doors. This week, your girls will explore a variety of artistic avenues so that they can express themselves in a way that lets this inner beauty shine! Whether it be painting, fashion design, writing or knitting, there is something for everyone to enjoy.
A Week in The Wild – Take a walk on the wild side with us as we get in touch with local experts to learn about the natural world. Campers will embark on adventures in the great outdoors that teach them about animals, plants, camping, and the ways in which we can love and protect our planet.
The Mad Scientist – Messy experiments and computer programming activities result in a week in which your girl can get in touch with the mad scientist inside of herself. With the instruction of local scientists and professionals, campers can test their own hypotheses and create their own discoveries about the world.
All Around the World – Give your girl the opportunity to “travel” around the world without ever having to leave home. Hearing guest speakers from different countries, exploring foods from different cultures, and learning salutations in various world languages sets your girl up for a multicultural experience she will not soon forget.
Be-YOU-tiful – In today’s busy, demanding, and fast-paced world, it is important that girls learn the value of self-care and self-love. This week, girls will participate in activities that promote mental and physical wellness. Practicing yoga classes, understanding healthy eating habits, and professional-led discussions about emotional coping mechanisms are all ways in which your girl will learn to take care of and value herself!
Hometown Heroes – Not all heroes fly around in capes and costumes. Many of them live right here in our hometown! Your girl will interact with teachers, firefighters, police officers and other civil servants to learn what it looks like to serve your community. They will also be able to practice their own hometown hero skills through various community-service based activities throughout the week!
The Big Splash – Did summer ever really happen if there was no big party to prove it? Your girl can end her summer with a BANG as we get messy and have fun during an exciting week filled with water-themed games/activities.
