10 Reasons Why Girls Create is the Ultimate Summer Camp
By Athena Project
Now in its 7th year, our unparalleled Girls Create summer camp program ignites the passions and talents of 6th to 10th grade girls in fashion design, stand-up and playwriting. Beginning in June, camps are in-person from 9 am – 3 pm MST. Professionals teach, guest artists share their expertise, and mentors guide and encourage during the creative process.
Each week-long camp culminates in a final project where we invite the community, including friends and family of the girls, to see their work. This Friday celebration is a highlight for participants and instructors!
Consider these top 10 reasons to attend the ultimate summer camp experience:
- Opportunity to spark creativity!
