Registration for Girls Inc. of Greater Indianapolis Summer Camp is open!

Girls Inc. Summer Camp is a four-week experience with a new theme each week – strong, smart, bold, and inspired. We challenge girls, ages 6-14, to think independently, enhance their physical abilities, promote creativity, and take bold risks in a welcoming all-girl environment.

Camp will take place June 10 – July 5, Monday through Friday, from 7:30am to 5:30pm at the Vision Academy on the west side of Indianapolis. Camp is closed on July 4. A typical day for campers will include breakfast, five activity sessions, lunch and recess, a reflection and independent exploration period, and snack time.

STRONG week focuses on healthy minds and bodies. Activates include yoga classes, cooking experiences, physical fitness with Energy Krazed, and several Girls Inc. programs. Work it Out focuses on healthy relationships, in Project BOLD they learn self-defense, and Redefining Beauty emphases the value of internal beauty.

SMART week encourages girls to discover their inner scientist and engineer while growing their entrepreneurial spirit. Activities include STEM experiences like coding and engineering, and older girls will visit the IUPUI campus. Girls will spend time preparing for the Economic Literacy Carnival which takes place during BOLD week and participate in other Girls Inc. programs include Economic Literacy and She Votes. Girls will also attend our annual Touchstone Awards luncheon, a celebration honoring local female leaders, this week.

BOLD week focuses on boosting self-confidence by exploring inner beauty and emphasizing positive messaging. Girls will give back by participating in a community service experience, learn more about themselves through a spoken word poetry workshop, and build their leadership skills during the Economic Literacy fair. Girls Inc. programs featured this week are Healthy Relationships and Media Literacy.

INSPIRED week exhibits the girls’ personal talents and showcases their inner beauty. They will dance, make art, and prepare for the Talent Show on Wednesday, July 3.
