The last two weeks of summer day camp were filled with bold and inspiring activities. The first two weeks of summer day camp were featured in the July enewsletter.
Week three of summer camp encouraged our girls to be BOLD. The girls participated in Redefining Beauty, Work It Out, and Economic Literacy. In Redefining Beauty, they designed a book to illustrate their confidence and build their self-esteem. In Work It Out, they learned to have empathy for others and to understand the consequences of hurtful behavior.
Economic Literacy was sponsored by First Internet Bank of Indianapolis. With their support, the girls were given the tools to start their own business, create a product, and sell the products to their peers. On July 2nd, the Economic Literacy Carnival was in full swing. Our girls learned about money and the hard work it takes to start a business. Read more about the Economic Literacy Carnival here.
BOLD week’s field trips included the NCAA Hall of Champions and the Lucas Oil Stadium. The A girls (6-8 year olds) toured the NCAA Hall of Champions and learned interesting facts about college sports. During free time, they played soccer on a simulated game and played basketball. The older girls (8-14 year olds) toured the Lucas Oil Stadium where they learned about the stadium and the Indianapolis Colts players. A highlight of the field trip was standing on the football field and seeing what the football players see.
Our final week of summer camp encouraged our girls to be INSPIRED. Throughout the week, the girls worked on their talent show preparations and Hip Hop Dance rehearsals. On the last Thursday of camp, the girls attended the Girls Inc. 2015 “Make Your Mark” Touchstone Awards Luncheon. Week four’s field trips included Indiana State University, Indiana Historical Society, Delta Faucet, and Indy Urban Acres. The Indianapolis Art Center also made an appearance at camp.
Prior to the start of the Touchstone luncheon, the girls displayed exhibits to more than 500 guests to share what they learned at summer camp. During the luncheon, the girls were paired up with another camper and assigned a table to sit with other guests. The 2015 Touchstone Honorees advised the girls to think big, to not be afraid to fail, and to believe they can be anything they want to be. Read more about our Touchstone Awards Luncheon here.
The girls celebrated their last week of summer day camp by performing in a talent show and sharing their summer growth and learning. Our 2015 summer day camp inspired our girls to be strong, smart, and bold.
We look forward to seeing the girls at next year’s summer day camp. Be on the look for more information beginning 2016.
