Adventure Camp (6th-8th grades)

This camp will focus on outdoor adventure, health and wellness by following Girls Inc.'s researched-based Girls enCourage curriculum.  Camp activities will include canoeing, hiking, high and low ropes challenge courses, log rolling, and a 3-day, 2-night overnight camping trip to Lake Farm Park during the last week of camp.

Learn more about Outdoor Adventure Camp

Girls enCourage is designed to sustain girls' interest in sports through adolescence by introducing them to non-traditional activities and adventures that go beyond stereotypes and challenge them to set their own personal goals and create their own definitions of success. Participation in program activities promotes movement skills, team cohesion and health awareness to develop girls' sense of personal power and worth. As they master new physical techniques and learn to take calculated risks, girls build not only physical strength, but also courage, confidence, self-reliance, and other critical life skills.
