Self.I.E Camp | July 16-20

Self.I.E. (Self Inspiration and Empowerment), is a specialty camp for girls entering grade 5 and 6. Led by highschoolers, our camp includes activities and reflections designed to build a strong sense of self and skills to navigate the pre-teen world. In a relaxed and inclusive environment, each day of the camp centers around one of five themes: self-care, self-acceptance, self-expression, self-defence, and self-to-others. Activities include: mindful yoga, art, baking, media awareness and self-defence, and concludes with a service project. The goal is to help girls in this age-group, appreciate and understand themselves, allowing them to flourish, so they can give back and support other girls.
Max 16 participants
