Girls Summer Leadership Camps
MOVING LEADERS FORWARD℠ At Moving Leaders Forward it is our mission to create self-confident and strong future leaders. We currently offer campers a choice of two different camp experiences for both middle and high school girls:
First our Day Camp, held at Derby Academy in Hingham, MA is a unique five-day experience for girls entering 8th & 9th grades. During these five days, girls will be exposed to guest-speakers, team and leadership building activities, public speaking, journaling, meditation, and various forms of physical movement, including self-defense. Our five-day leadership camp strives to aid in building on girls' understanding and appreciation of the importance of a strong mind-body connection.
Our second option is a Weekend Overnight Retreat, in collaboration with Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health in Stockbridge, MA. This experience is geared toward rising, 10th, 11th and 12 grade girls. The goal of this program is to equip campers with leadership skills, knowledge, and the self-confidence needed to help them to develop into strong future leaders.
