Our camp is an affordable four-week program that focuses on the words in our mission statement – strong, smart, bold, and inspire. It is designed to inspire girls, ages 6-14, by challenging them mentally, enhancing their physical ability, promoting creativity, and encouraging them to take risks. Summer camp includes hands-on activities in a friendly all-girl environment.

The camp will take place June 11 to July 6, Monday through Friday, from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. at the Vision Academy. Girls Inc. Day Camp will be closed on July 4. A typical day for campers will include breakfast, three activity sessions, lunch and recess, three afternoon activities, a reflection period, and snack time.

Our camp is split into four weeks, each with a different theme:

STRONG week focuses on healthy relationships, personal safety, fitness, and nutrition. The programming builds girls’ athletic abilities, teaches them safety tips and techniques, and  fun ways to exercise. Activities for this week will include martial arts and Girls Inc. programs Work It Out, which focuses on healthy relationships, and Project BOLD, which focuses on self-defense.

SMART week focuses on career readiness and encourages girls to discover their inner scientist. They will explore careers and opportunities in the technology field and participate in a hands-on service project. Activities for this week might include STEM activities, and Girls Inc. programs like Economic Literacy. Older girls will also have a chance to go on a college tour!

BOLD week teaches the girls to discover their inner beauty and boost their self-esteem by emphasizing positive messaging. Girls will learn how to define beauty on their own terms and participate in creative projects. Girls will also attend our annual Touchstone Awards luncheon, a celebration honoring local female leaders, this week.

INSPIRE week exhibits the girls’ personal talents and showcases their inner beauty.  They will learn about various forms of art and participate in fun activities like dance lessons.
