Go Girls! is not just a summer camp. It’s a movement.
Our mission is to ignite a compassion revolution by putting girls center stage. An internationally recognized social innovation, Go Girls! re-imagines the way we educate, nurture, and empower girls. In Go Girls! Camp, 6-11 year olds make and perform their very own play that we believe will change the world.
Every Go Girls! Camp is a chance for girls to be in an all-girl community. Older girls become big sisters to the younger ones, practicing leadership, empathy and remembering how to play. Younger girls get to see what kind of 5th grader they might grow up and be one day. This intergenerational environment is rounded out by our Go Girls! Leadership Team (GGLT), our young Assistant Teachers, and our adult teaching staff. Magic happens when girls and women come together across ages.
Equally important is the opportunity for girls to be met right where they are at. Go Girls! also spend plenty of time in groups with other girls their own age so that they can build skills, go deep, be challenged and feel safe among their peers.
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!”
Over the course of 2 weeks, girls work together to create and perform their own plays 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!”
