Girls Create is a summer camp program for playwriting, stand-up, fashion design and new this year, Girls Artfully Minded. Programs teach girls (6th through 10th grade) various aspects of these art forms in a unique way–we prioritize bringing in professionals from the community to teach the programs, guest artists to share their expertise, and utilize mentors from the community to provide guidance during the creative process. Each week-long program culminates in a final project for the week where we invite the community, including friends and family of the girls, to experience their work. This Friday celebration is a highlight for participants and instructors!
Girls Write is a theatre and writing immersion camp that empowers girls’ imaginations through their creation of individual short plays. Guest actors and directors bring each story to life in a staged reading at the end of the week. As they develop creative tools for storytelling, girls gain confidence in their unique voices and experience the value of sharing ideas.
Girls Stand-Up features seasoned mentors and teaching artists providing a fun space for girls to exercise their creative energies through developing comedy sets to boost self-confidence, spontaneity and playfulness.
Girls Design Fashion unleashes girls’ inner fashionista, providing an exciting creative outlet in the realm of designing clothes that also helps develop key life skills like innovation, focus, planning, and problem-solving.
NEW THIS YEAR: Girls Artfully Minded creates a brave space for girls to feel less isolated and allows them to express themselves through creative visual art activities. This wellness camp will include creativity + conversation on a daily basis to create an ongoing monthly cohort for healing and artistic expression to continue. Girls walk through the acts of self-reflection and self-care through writing.
