Girls Can Change the World (July 13-17)

Girls Can Change the World week is about discovering your inner super girl. Your camper will learn about important topics like social justice, climate change, activism, and government from local women officials. It is her chance to focus on what is important to her and how she wants to make a difference in the world. Every girl has a voice to enact change!

Girls Mean Business (July 20-24)

During Girls Mean Business week, campers will use the ideas developed during the previous week to create a business plan that they are passionate about. They will brainstorm how to come up with a product or service that solves a relevant problem in their community, use innovative marketing tools to create an epic sales pitch, and finally launch their very own business in the safest way possible for these unique times. Last year our amazing campers created the Party Tree Company, a company that sold eco-friendly party supplies. The campers created their own products and demonstrations and sold them to the community. We can’t wait to see what this summer has in store for our future entrepreneurs!
