This all-new two-week camp offering designed specifically for Lincoln School—and open to all—features Girls Leadership Collaborative’s signature elements including the high and low ropes course, Strengths-Explorer tool, group challenges, and engaging experiences designed to challenge girls to practice self- expression and productive risk-taking. Using brain-based and research-driven micro-sessions, girls learn the neurobiology and drivers of decision-making, risk-taking, and blindspots. This camp welcomes returning girls and those new to Girls Leadership Collaborative (GLC) in Grades 3 through 8.

Girls will enjoy social time, interacting with guest practitioners in yoga and mindfulness exercises to help quiet the mind. In addition, the camp will provide girls with the opportunity to select from a variety of themes that interest them related to leadership such as: public speaking, design-thinking challenges, our signature game-changer speaker series, exploration of political, environmental, or social activism, designing service learning opportunities, and outcome-oriented conflict resolution techniques. With a focus on FUN, we will build critical skills, confidence, and connectedness.

About the Girls Leadership Collaborative

GLC is a strengths-based leadership development organization which serves anyone who identifies with the female experience. We are an inclusive, human development organization that empowers girls, equips educators, and supports parents & caregivers as they guide their daughters to become agents of change in their communities. Using a variety of formats, Girls Leadership Collaborative programs and camps delve into group formation theory to better understand adolescent behaviors and motivations. Through peer-led team building exercises, as well as peer-designed group challenges, games, and activities girls will experience a safe, supportive environment to practice initiating, self-expressing, and changing our relationship with failure and conflict. Our researched-based, individualized curriculum explores leadership behaviors and uncovers personal passions. We make important research in neuroscience accessible while girls uncover their strengths in a fun and highly engaging environment. Ultimately, we provide the space to examine who we are being for, and with, each other.
