July 23-July 27, 2018
Who should join? Campers are girls age 5 -11 who enjoy Creative Problem-Solving, Crafts, & Clowning Around. This is a program that promotes “Girl power.” What’s “girl Power?” It’s all about encouraging, role-modeling & motivating girls to make the most of their lives.It’s seeing & being our very best & doing the same for our girl friends! At girl’s club, we work on developing our positive communication & friendship skills, in the supportive environment of an all-girls Creativity Club. We try new things; build one another up in a world that tests our resolve. We grow creatively and it’s fun!
Camper activities: Girls will be encouraged to work with their minds, hands, & hearts as they explore performing & visual arts. Sessions on clowning may include simple juggling, theater games, clown make-up, mime, & more. Crafts may include: beaded jewelry, rubber stamp art, communal sculpture creation, card assemblage, mask making, etc. Projects change thanks to the girls’ input!
Adolescent’s Leadership: Girls age 12 & 13 may serve as Counselors in Training (C.I.Ts.). This leadership component is as central to the Girl’s Club process as the camper experience. Counselors in Training serve as helpers & role models. They have direct & indirect instruction & grow. First year C.I.Ts. pay full price to attend. Second year C.I.Ts pay half price. Creativity Club girls age 14 & older are invited to apply to be counselors to earn a stipend that increases every year. Most of the staff gear their summer plans around this experience & return year after year.
