This Girls Boss event will be facilitating a unique leadership camp designed to teach girls between 12-16 how to make a difference in our community. Attendees of the program will design and implement a charity fundraiser for underprivileged youth in Burlington in just one week. Their mission's intent will be to provide much needed food and resources for the ROCK (Reach Out Center for Kids) community centres.
This leadership program incorporates all the necessary skills to design and implement a successful event, be a leader and a solid team player, and appreciate the value of contribution to the lives of others. All of these skills will be taught through fun, interactive and playful activities. Girls will experience Art & Design, Photography, Acting Games, Team Challenges, Mindfulness, Outdoor Activities and just down right fun! Girls will work hard, play hard, and take pride in their achievements.
The first day girls will gain an understanding of the needs of a community, determine what there mission will be, and identify the values they intend to live by for the week. In the afternoon, they will work together to design a fundraiser from scratch. A name, an outcome, purpose, and plan of action will be established using leadership tools, activities and games. On day two, girls will create a solid business plan for implementing their concept with the help of strategic coaching and guest speakers. The day's focus is on developing skills in communication, collaboration, and creativity. Day 3, girls learn how to get their message out to the world using their own voice, talent, and courage. Day 4 is designed to put the concepts into action, and learn more about marketing. This day will help girls strengthen their focus, problem solving, and teamwork skills. Day 5 is event day! Girls pull it all together, learning to stay calm and resourceful while having a blast! The event will close with a group celebration to recognize each girl for their hard work, unique skills, and dedication to the project, and reflect on the fun and friends they made along the way!

Radiant Girls Camps
Our girls programs are designed for the girl who wants to discover how to love and nurture the body, develop inner strength through movement and creativity, and find the courage to follow her passions.
Although each program we run is personally designed for the group, we follow 2 simple principles for empowerment: Everyone has inner wisdom that needs to be heard & trusted, and taking care of your body and emotions is the foundation for wellbeing.Our events focus on these core values: leadership, courage, kindness, gratitude, positive thinking, and self care, all the things that make a girl radiant.
Additional Support Before & After Camp
For most girls attending our camp, this will be the first time with a group of people they don't know. Often times the hardest part of this kind of camp is overcoming the fear of the first day. For this reason we will be providing a tour of the facility and a live group call “meet & greet” to go over the essentials to pack, and prepare for a fabulous week.
It's been our experience, that encouraging healthy eating, and positive lifestyle choices is better received when it comes from an outside source. Once a safe, comfortable environment has been established, young girls tend to open up and be more responsive to us. During camp we encourage self awareness and examining new perspectives. Sometimes changing thinking and behaviours takes time, and support is needed to fully integrate new learnings. If you feel your girl would benefit from private coaching, this can be arranged following our camp experience. These sessions can be done in person, or over live video calls.
Campership Fund & Sponsors
Every year we offer campers a credit of $375 towards a day camp program, and an overnight retreat. Campers requesting this scholarship must send in a request and include an recent experience where they have given back to someone in need in their community. Photos, short video or supporting documents explaining the event and the impact it has had will contribute to who receives this scholarship. The camper and/or a family member should also include some information about why this program is of interest to them.
We regularly have people in our community who want to support us in creating these amazing experiences for girls. These people believe in what we do, and want to be a part of uplifting our girls with us. These special people sponsor a few girls each summer to attend one of our events. If you know a girl who would greatly benefit from our program, but may not have the financial means to attend, please reach out to us. We may be able to send her to camp!
