GEMS is a week-long program for girls entering 6th through 8th grade. The program, which is run for and by young women, aims to build confidence necessary for girls to take on new challenges, engage in the community, and grow as young leaders. We’ll host guest speakers, engage in community service, play games, and participate in group activities. The theme for the week is Taking Care; we’ll focus on making positive choices for ourselves, effective communication with others, making change in our communities, forging new paths, and voicing our passions.
GEMS Camp is an opportunity for girls to build friendships, grow their confidence, make positive change in their community, challenge themselves, and have FUN! Girls at camp will experience a range of new things in a fully supported and safe environment. We are busy planning and prepping to make Summer 2018 the best GEMS Camp yet!
Our program is girl-centered and custom-tailored. The ultimate goal is for each GEMStone to take her camp experiences back into the world and use them to be confident, community-minded, brave, and kind. To that end, our week together will be full of opportunity for her to value herself, discover her passions, build relationships, and actively engage in her community.
