Program Highlights

Whether campers are comfortable in their own skin or are trying to break out of their shells, Girls Empowerment is a safe place for them to take risks and find their strength. Possible activities include self-discovery challenges, creative arts projects, community service, a cupcake wars competition, yoga, improv acting and a self-defense workshop.

Please note: This camp is a welcoming space for gender expansive youth. Feel free to reach out if you have questions about whether or not it would be a good fit for your child.
