Girls Empowered: American Girl Camp

Girls will have fun doing themed crafts, games, fitness activities and role playing games using the stories of the American Girl Dolls.  We will watch a little of the movie each day.  We will examine how Gabriela used poetry to help her overcome her stutter.   We will explore Nanea’s stories that teach kokua — doing good deeds and giving selflessly — sometimes require sacrifice.   Like the American girl characters’, campers will learn about following their passions, dreams and expressing themselves through art, poetry and songs.  In addition to crafts and role-playing games, this American Girl Camp will include yoga and dance.  Girls also will learn how to handle mean girl situations using “Chrissa Stands Strong.” Campers are encouraged to bring their American Girl Doll or another doll! Campers should bring a nut free snack and beverage in a reusable container to camp each day.

Using the Star Wars movies as a guiding force, boys will learn to use the force to awaken their inner Jedi. Boys will have fun playing Star Wars-themed games and role-playing games, while learning about their inner strength. Boys will learn they can use their powers for good -- to solve problems, to work though conflict, to stand-up for themselves and to stand up for others.  The week includes fun, mindfulness activities, games, role-playing and making their own light saber. Campers should bring a nut-free snack and beverage in a reusable container to camp each day. Don’t miss out on this week of fun or let your camper be the last Jedi!
