In 2022, we hosted virtual and in-person IDEA Camps for girls local to Chicago and all over the country to participate! In 2023, our new and improved Female Strong Camp will focus on self-discovery, developing curiosity and confidence, hands on activities, and lively group and small chats with our guest speakers. Join us for a program filled with exciting activities, crafts, and guest speakers!
Let’s Talk About You!
Come meet your fellow campers by participating in ice breakers. Then, our friends at Paper Source show us how to turn your passions into ideas though the creation of vision boards!
Let’s Talk About Your Passion!
Start the session with a fun icebreaker, then we will have a guest speaker to talk about how your unique personality influences your passions. We will discuss how to ‘Create and Feed’ your own unique ‘Spark’ and you will get to share your ideas and learn from other girls your age.
Let’s Talk About Confidence!
Learn about what we can do to build our confidence and why it is so important to focus on creating a commitment to confidence! We will engage with both a guest speaker and a YEA! Girl to hear ways to grow and foster confidence, and we will end with a fun activity to reflect on our own confidence level.
Let’s Talk About Turning Passion Into Action!
In this session, we will brainstorm strategies to turn your passion into a vision first, and then break down the elements of action that we can take. We will have the opportunity to hear from both college-aged and high school aged girls who have walked in your shoes and turned their ideas into ACTION! We will start to put together simple action plans to create a way to tell the world about your idea or passion.
Let’s Tell the World!
To conclude camp, we will have the opportunity to share our mood boards and our action plans – and this is YOUR opportunity to take the floor! We will create a safe and fun environment to encourage idea-sharing and build our confidence as a team. We will end with creating an accountability plan to put your passion into action!
We know you do not want to miss out on an experience like this one. We can’t wait to see you there!
