camps for girls coming summer of 2019

Our first camp in August 2018 was awesome! It is amazing to watch these kids become empowered and increase their Emotional Intelligence right before our eyes!

Dates: Summer 2019 (exact dates to come)
Age Levels:
Elementary Aged (must be entering 2nd grade)
Middle School

OUR PURPOSE

Is to proactively plant the seeds of self-confidence and self-care for young kids at an early age - by supporting them with social and emotional wellness, and increasing Emotional Intelligence (EQ), specifically in areas that girls are typically challenged.

WHAT IS IT?

Similar to the EQ it UP! Uplifting After School Workshop, the Uplifting Camp for Girls™ will support young girls with uplifting themselves and others through self, social, and emotional wellness. Utilizing the EQ it UP!™ Curriculum, the intention is to support them with increasing their emotional intelligence through Education, Practice, Reinforcement, and Engagement, within themselves and among their peers...truly creating a Girl Uplifters Team™.

Each age level will focus on situations and experiences that happen at that stage of development.
