3-day Empowerment Camp for Girls
Each September, Smoothies runs a 3-day Empowerment Camp for Girls aged 9-14. We recognize that girls are vulnerable in terms of how society judges them, and girls need tools and support to help guide them through some pretty tough years.
What camp looks like:
Campers arrive on Friday and we get settled into our cabins with mentors (aged 15-18)
We have team building activities and campers get to know each other's names with ice-breakers. After dinner we have a fire and read form our workbooks ("When Being Me Doesn't Feel Like Enough" - by Kiki Rozema)
There is open discussion on fears, bullying, girl friendships, experiences etc. This is our first night together and we create bonds very quickly in a safe, trusting and respectful space.
On Saturday we have a yoga class with discussion on ways to de-escalate anxiety and the girls are introduced to breathing exercises to alleviate stress
We have an afternoon of physical group activities that range in availability (rope courses, climbing wall, hiking, etc)
Sunday is our last day but it's filled with a guest speaker, Smoothies Olympics and awards ceremony.
It's the best time we could stuff into 3 days!
** We sell out a year in advance for our camp
