Summercampership

The Summer Camp program is a great way to expose girls to a learning experience that builds independence through exposure to outdoor camping activities. The girls full camp tuition is paid for by the generous support of donors like you, company sponsors and the Hunter family.

Girl Power Hour In Stem

The goal of the Girl Power Hour in STEM is to use an outdoor camp experience to introduce girls age 10-15 to environmental sciences. In this program girls will be introduced to the sciences of biologist, environmental research, restoration ecology (helping restore ecosystems damaged by people) and more.
