Send your girl on an adventure that she’ll remember for the rest of her life! Resident camp gives girls the unique opportunity to make new friends, bond with and learn from different adults, discover their strengths, develop leadership skills, try new activities, and seek challenges all while having lots of fun!
Girls can choose specialty camps like archery, horseback riding, sailing, and science, or enjoy a classic summer camp experience (that has a little bit of everything!). Look for sessions such as Art Explosion, Summer Camp Classic, “Girl on Fire,” Outdoors & Smore’s, and more.
Our camps are safe, hands-on, and inspiring, and our locations will acquaint girls with our region’s landscape, from woods and wetlands to prairies and rolling hills. Girls will find fun, courage, and purpose—and best of all, they’ll find themselves.
