Go Girls! is not just a summer camp. It’s a movement.
During the summer of 2014, almost 300 girls declared, “I am a Go Girl!” in 10 sessions in Oakland, Berkeley, San Francisco, Alameda and Hoopa, CA. Imagine what 300 Go Girls! could do!

WHO is Go Girls! Camp for?
For rising 1st-6th grade girls and Middle school girls as part of our Go Girls! Leadership Team (GGLT).
I can’t stress how much the camps you run are terrific! You have a camp that does everything right. They are so thoughtful and creative and one of the few camps that actually follow the child’s lead!”
WHAT do Go Girls! do?
Go Girls! work together to make and perform their own plays that we believe will change the world.
Over the course of 2 weeks, girls engage in theater and expressive arts learning that reinforce social/emotional skills. The camps are led by a team of highly trained and very talented theater teaching artists, expressive artists, and the coolest teen and pre-teen assistants you will ever meet.
Go Girls! Camp day goes from 9am-4pm is intentionally designed to include the perfect balance of facilitated community building time, arts-based instructional time, and plenty of free play. Girls engage with drama/acting, visual arts, creative movement/dance and music. We take time to play outside. We take time to relax and read. The “big show” is performed at 4pm on the last day of the 2 week session and just might be one of the most exciting and original theatrical experiences you will ever attend.
I had so much fun at Go Girls! today. I think it was the best day of my life!”
