Summer Camp

Join the fun each summer as Girls Inc. transforms into a full-service summer camp experience. Each week, girls will experience a structured and themed atmosphere that inspires our girls to be Strong, Smart, and Bold.

Who Attends Camp?

The camp experience begins for girls entering kindergarten all the way through the teenage years. Activities are designed to spark their interests, build on their skills, help them to explore a world of possibilities, be confident and most importantly have fun!

How Does It Work?

Girls will be placed in units that are based on the grade they are entering in the fall. Each unit will rotate through various activities/specialty areas throughout the day like art and crafts, structured pool time, and SSB FUN (Strong, Smart and Bold Fun) where girls participate in science, economic literacy, media literacy and games activities.

When campers are not in specialty programming they will have unit time, where they will continue to have fun doing all kinds of projects and activities based on the weekly theme.

Every other week we will invite parents and family to attend a camp-wide show where the girls will strut their stuff on stage to music that goes with the weekly theme.

When is Camp Held?

Camp hours are Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. We offer extended morning and afternoon care for an additional fee. 

What Are the Fees?

Camp fees are as follows:

  • Camp: $150.00 per week
  • Morning care: an additional $35 per week
  • Afternoon care: an additional $55 per week

Discount of $10 if you register for camp +AM and PM care.
