Wings to Fly Camp for Girls
Parents who want their daughters to do more than snap selfies this summer will be happy to know applications opened this week for the Girls Rule Foundation’s leadership summer camp.
“Wings to Fly” isn’t a typical summer camp.
Sure, there will be horseback riding, ropes courses and plenty of time spent around the campfire, buttrained camp coaches will also lead participants in empowering breakout sessions – from STEM classes with a side of breakfast to lessons in financial, physical and emotional confidence. Girls Rule Foundation prides itself on its 3:1 ratio of camper to coach.
What: Girls Rule Foundation Wings to Fly camp
When: June 11 to 18, 2016
Where: Chauncey Ranch, 18970 E. Old Sycamore Rd., Mayer, Ariz.
Who: Girls in 7th to 12 grades
Price: $499 (scholarships available)
“Wings to Fly is for girls who know they were made to do great things and have big dreams and, with the right tools, resources, education and mentorship they will succeed in a bright future,” says CEO and co-founder Dena Patton.
The camp is hosted every summer for an intimate group of teenage girls between 7th and 12th grades. From dozens of applications, 18 girls are selected to attend a week of horseback riding, a ropes course, pool and learn skills to help them succeed.
Wings to Fly takes place June 11 to 18 at Chauncey Ranch in Mayer, Ariz. (90 minutes north of Phoenix). Interested participants can apply at girlsruleleadershipcamp.org. There is a refundable $50 application deposit and tuition costs $499 if selected.
Girls Rule Foundation, a 501c3 nonprofit founded in 2007, plans to award four camp scholarships. Recipients will be decided during the selection process. Applications close May 1 or until all available spots are filled.
