GIRLS University Summer Camp
We are a 7-8 week summer camp program for all girls. We have a variety of activities and learning experiences for our girls. We have a week of college tours that have included trips to Lincoln University, UMSL, Harris Stowe State University, SIUE and Washington University. Some of weekly activities include swimming, cooking, photography, jewelry making, drawing, yoga, chess, dance, financial literacy, creative writing, book publishing and more.
We expose our girls to entrepreneurship, arts, and more. Our girls are introduce to people that own and operate their our businesses and work with them on ways to start their own business. Our girls are also exposed to life learning experience. In 2017, our girls took a trip to Memphis to experience the historical museum and history in Memphis.
All our staff volunteer their time and talents to share with the girls. Our photographer have been with us for 2 years, our dance and jewelry instructor have been with us for 3 years, our financial literacy instructor has been with us 2 years and our cooking instructor has been with us for 2 years.
