Smart-Girl is an activity-based program that empowers girls to become confident, capable, self-reliant young women who make healthy choices. In a small-group format, girls establish a safe environment in which they can learn and practice new skills while developing a greater sense of self. Smart-Girl guides girls to develop leadership ability, group and social skills, further develop their problem solving and critical thinking skills, self-worth, and social/emotional intelligence. Smart-Girl Leadership Summer Camp is a great opportunity for pre-teens and teens to meet other girls, have fun and talk about the issues teen girls face every day. Our camps offer an inclusive experience for girls from diverse backgrounds in a welcoming environment.
Cost: $300/camper. Must pay with credit card at time of registration. Need based scholarships are available. Space will not be reserved until full payment is received.
Scholarship: If you would like to inquire about a scholarship, please Contact Us and we will walk you through our easy application process.
