Young girls face a number of challenges in today’s society, from staying in school to grappling with a negative body image and the media’s hyper sexualized portrayal of women. The Girls Inc. Experience summer camp helps girls explore and celebrate their strengths, their voices, and their dreams. It serves as a safe place where girls' interests, opinions, and concerns are valued by adults and other girls. Mentorship and education through fun, interactive activities prepares girls to achieve academically, lead healthy and physically active lives, manage money, navigate media messages, and discover an interest in STEM subjects. Girls Inc. believes in girls' rights and abilities, and wants to ensure that girls grow up strong, smart, and bold.
