For girls

Girlblazers Summer Camp is a special program that takes place for one-week in June.   

At the Girlblazers Summer Camp girls will learn the skills they need to become leaders in their school and community and will meet women who have blazed a trail for them.  The girls will have hands-on leadership experiences in group projects and individual activities.  The camp will begin with an introduction to Alice Paul and basic definitions of leadership.  Following this introduction, each camp session will contain an activity corresponding to both historic and contemporary women leaders.  The girls will take away from the camp an understanding of leadership in action and how that understanding can apply to their own lives.
