Girls Leadership Collaborative provides a transformational camp experience for girls entering grades 3-8. We offer hands-on individualized leadership development where participants identify personal leadership styles and individual strengths while developing community.
Week 1 welcomes all girls, both new and returning, to the GLC experience. This includes our signature elements like the high and low ropes course, Strengths-Explorer tool, group challenges and engaging experiences designed to challenge girls with self- expression, productive risk-taking, and practice initiating. This camp week will allow returning girls to present and mentor others, as well as model reflection and initiating in group settings. Girls will enjoy social time swimming in the Brown University pool, interacting with guest practitioners in yoga, and mindfulness exercises to help quiet the mind.
Week 2 is designed for girls who have previous experience, but is also open to new participants. Week 2 will include our signature elements such as the Strengths-Explorer/Strengths-Finder facilitation, high and low ropes course, all new group challenges, swimming at the Brown University pool, and our mindfulness programs. In addition, this week will provide girls with the opportunity to select from a variety of themes that interest them related to leadership such as: public speaking, design thinking challenges, designing service learning opportunities, and outcome-oriented conflict resolution techniques.
