CAMP LIVEGIRL OVERVIEW
“A week-long camp, a life-long perspective”
2017 THEME: Be Yourself. Inspire The World!
WHO: Rising 6th-9th grade girls from across Connecticut & New York
WHAT: Camp LiveGirl will bring together 100 middle school girls from across Fairfield County for a week of leadership development and girl empowerment in a fun, diverse, team-based environment. In the mornings, girls complete “Leaders in Action" and hear from inspiring keynote speakers, including a Silicon Valley VP, a global Chief Financial Officer, a construction management President, and a fashion CEO/entrepreneur. In the afternoons, girls select either multi-sports 🏀 or musical theatre 🎤 and explore new interests, including coding, poetry, yoga, self-defense and more!
Camp LiveGirl is dedicated to giving your girl time and space to reflect on who she wants to be, why, & how to be true to herself!
Girls come away with improved self-confidence, communication skills, and relationship skills. Personalized afternoon schedule includes multi-sports or musical theatre. A camp like no other!!
NEW THIS SUMMER: Girls will select from INSPIRE workshops, including coding, poetry, yoga, self-defense, and more! We will also show the movie HIDDEN FIGURES for an extra special end-of-camp celebration!
WHY: Our research shows that girls feel empowered and more confident to explore new interests and passions in an all girl environment! 😍
HOW: Our high school mentor:camper ratio is 8:1. By using a small team model, all girls immediately feel a positive sense of belonging at camp and form close bonds with their teammates.
CAMP FEE: $350 tax-deductible donation to LiveGirl Inc., includes transportation, t-shirt, backpack, journal, lunch & snacks. (Scholarships & payment plans available.) After you register, you will receive an email with payment instructions.
