Summer Camp registrations are filling up!
Each day is designed to address the unique challenges girls are facing in response to coronavirus directives, such as confidence building activities, cyber-bullying and safety activities and emotional support. As always, the groundwork of our activities are physical fitness & nutrition, stress management, STEM education, media messaging, financial literacy and leadership and community action.

Girls Inc. Allies in Action
With girls experiencing aggression, fearfulness, violence, and cyberbullying as an all too common experience, Allies in Action offers tools to navigate difficult social situations. Through communication skills, peer supports, and identifying negative behaviours early, build self-esteem, focus on stress management and healthy relationships.
Girls Inc. Operation Smart
Through this broad approach for all our Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) programs, girls are encouraged to explore their interests in STEM, learning to identify key topics in STEM throughout their daily lives. They are also exposed to a variety of careers and model roles in STEM fields.
Girls Inc. Mind+Body
Mind+Body supports and promotes the whole health of girls ages 6 to 18, using a philosophy which recognizes that many factors, including physical and mental wellness, contribute to girls’ health. Consequently, the Initiative focuses on four critical content areas; physical activity, body image, stress management and nutrition.
With girls facing media messages constantly, lessons in media literacy encourage girls to think critically about what they see in magazines, online, and in movies. This awareness minimizes the negative impact on girls and increases knowledge in marketing, media literacy, and social media safety.
GirlStart Literacy program.
“GirlStart” is a program to increase literacy skills, self-esteem and success for girls age 6-8. Rather than simply replicate school-day strategies, we provide opportunities for girls to learn how to enjoy books, writing, and playing with language. Offering fun and engaging activities that help girls build relationships, practice decision-making skills and build a love for reading.
Girls Inc. Economic Literacy
By building on basic economic and financial concepts, Girls Inc. girls become familiar with money management, investment, and global economics, including gender equity in income and business.
Leadership and Community Action
Through the Leadership and Community Actions program, girls build leadership skills and create lasting social change through community action projects. Girls learn also how to identify needs in the community and how to gain community support for solutions.
