Our unparalleled Girls Create summer camp program ignites the passions and talents of 6th to 10th grade girls in playwriting, comedy, fashion design, and new this year, Artfully Minded. Professionals teach, guest artists share their expertise, and mentors from the community guide and encourage – empowering girls to lead and to affect change in themselves and others through creative learning. Emphasis is placed on the creation process and not the final outcome.

Each week-long program culminates in a showcase 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! 

All camps are $275/week and include all materials and supplies. Lunch is not included; however, a morning and afternoon snack are!  All camps are in person and all camp times are 9am-3pm at the designated locations.  

A limited number of full and partial scholarships are available. There is also a $25 discount available for Artfully Minded for campers who attend another 2023 camp first. Please click here to apply or contact info@athenaprojectarts.org for more details.

Our Girls Write is a theatre and writing immersion camp that empowers girls’ imaginations through their creation of individual short plays. Guest actors and directors bring each story to life in a staged reading at the end of the week. As they develop creative tools for storytelling, girls gain confidence in their unique voices and experience the value of sharing ideas.

Our Girls Stand Up features seasoned mentors and teaching artists providing a fun space for girls to exercise their creative energies through creating comedy sets to boost self-confidence and playfulness. The campers will perform their comedy sets at the end of the week.

Girls Design Fashion will explore inspiration, design, and the world of fashion illustration. Mini dress forms will be provided and the campers will explore sustainable fashion design. A fashion show for friends and family will take place at the end of the week.

Our newest camp, Girls Artfully Minded, creates a brave space for girls to express themselves through creative visual art activities. This wellness camp includes daily creativity + conversation to create an ongoing monthly cohort for healing and artistic expression to continue.

At Girls Create, we believe that “Girl” means many things and can be a complicated term. We recognize that the term “Girl” does not automatically include all aspects of the gender spectrum that is welcome at camp. We want to create a safer space for the expression and growth for all girls, trans and gender-nonconforming individuals. We ask for pronouns because we don’t want to assume anyone’s gender identity! If you are comfortable sharing please do, if not that’s ok too. Knowing your preferred pronoun helps us to address you in the way most comfortable for you.
