The Women's Giving Circle of Howard County is accepting applications for its residential summer camp, Journey 2015. The camp will include 25 girls entering 8th or 9th grade in the fall of 2015.
Journey will run from July 12 to July 18, 2015, at Washington College in Chestertown. The girls will live in the college dorms, eat in the college cafeteria and experience a collegiate atmosphere during the week-long program.
The program includes:
Workshops on empowerment and motivation, communication, decision-making skills, group dynamics, self awareness, goal setting, and conflict resolution.
Small and large group projects focusing on leadership and interpersonal skills.
One-on-one interactions between staff and girls to address specific areas of growth for the individual and identify an action plan for post-site implementation.
Recreational activities such as swimming, athletics and team building activities, including a Confidence Course.
Applicants should have some previous experience in leading peers, a willingness to try new experiences in a safe environment and a desire to serve the community.
The camp will be restricted to girls who are living in Howard County and now attending seventh and eighth grade. The cost of the camp is $730 if paying by check, $755 if paying by credit card. Applications can be obtained at http://www.mlw.org and will also be available in guidance offices at local middle schools. Limited financial assistance is available. Applications are due March 15, 2015. For further information, contact the MLW office at 301-444-8623 or email@example.com
