powertogirlsThe Power to Girls Foundation brings together girls of the community and lead them along their journey of self discovery, self confidence and empowers campers to be their best and brightest selves. Power to Girls’ main focus is to teach young girls their worth in a society that sometimes tell them otherwise.

A fun game of Huckle Buckle, it’s all about the team work!

Everyday at Power to Girls each young girl is reminded that they are smart, strong and able to achieve anything they set their mind to. The power of discussion is significant at Power to Girls as the campers have the chance to vocalize their opinions about what it means to be a girl today, as well as hear the opinions of others.

The campers learn about photography from a guest artist

The campers are able to express themselves artistically through activities like making off the shoulder tops and learning photography from a guest artist! The art based camp also allows the campers to experience poetry, digital media, visual art and more. They also have the opportunity to stretch their minds and bodies by playing sports and other fun games.

 

Power to Girls believe every camper deserves to be heard and feel valued in order to recognize the significance of their words and actions.  Needless to say, the campers’ experience at Power to Girls will play a positive and significant part in the impactful individuals they will grow to become.
