About this camp

Empowered Girls

Empowered Girls is pairing up with The Making-Box - Southern Ontario's hub for improv education and live comedy - to offer a Improv Leadership Camp! The mornings will be spent with Katie Higginbottom, PhD, focusing on empowerment, leadership, and wellness activities designed specifically for girls aged 10 to 13. The afternoon will be spent with Hayley Kellett focusing on improvisation games and activities that will solidify leadership lessons from the morning.

Days will be jam-packed with learning, laughter, confidence building and empowerment!

The Our Kids review of Empowered Girls


Katie Higginbottom founded Empowered Girls in the understanding that girls are particularly vulnerable to low self-esteem, negative self-talk, bullying, body dysmorphia and anxiety. The program is based in the research she’s done, including that related to the completion of her doctorate on women’s leadership in education. Empowered Girls is based, in large part, in a mentorship model, bringing young people together to work in consort around a range of activity. The activities are there for what they can promote, rather than as ends in themselves, including a positive sense of engagement based in a core set of values. Being part of the group can in itself, be transformative. Higginbottom, for her part, is an excellent mentor, and is herself a primary draw. A philanthropist, she was a finalist in Chatelaine Magazine’s 2011 “Hot 30 under 30: The Next Generation of Leaders.” She has helped develop a Women in Leadership MBA class at Harvard Business School. All of that experience provides the basis for the Empowered Girls programs.

Director's Message


Katie Higginbottom, Dr.

Some of the most vulnerable ages for female adolescents are 10 - 13 years old. During these years, issues such as peer pressure, bullying, anxiety and body dysmorphia begin to consume our young women, distracting them from becoming all they can be. Up until these ages, girls show equal interest in leadership to boys. It is during this vulnerable time that girls’ interest and confidence in leadership drops off.

I designed Empowered Girls Leadership Day Camp to empower girls with the confidence to realize their true potential & the leadership skills to reach their goals. Using fun, educational activities, Empowered Girls aims to conquer issues such as low self-esteem, negative self-talk, bullying, body dysmorphia & stress/anxiety.

Because empowered girls change the world.
