On the surface, Girls Rock the Ridge Leadership Camp looks like your average summer camp.

But this camp might also change your life with its combination of exploration and personal challenge. You’ll have the space to be silly and play both in camp and while on a short wilderness trip. And you’ll be an integral part of a group of young women who love to explore the world and share ideas about their beliefs and values.

Special leadership camp activities

While adventuring outdoors together, campers will develop greater empathy and self-awareness. They will learn outdoor skills such as fire building, navigation, and Leave-No-Trace canoeing or backpacking techniques during a 3 day/2 night overnight hiking or canoe trip. Traditional crafts and intentional conversations encourage each individual to express their unique points of view and hear those of fellow campers. Develop self-resiliency through solo reflection time.

Community & self-confidence

Camp has a profound impact on campers. It has the power to turn a few weeks of summer into an experience they’ll never forget. Counselors and naturalists will facilitate activities and reflection opportunities where each camper will discover more about themselves than they would think possible. Activities reveal campers’ strengths as they build their knowledge, creativity, interpersonal skills, become a better listener, and a confident leader. The authenticity found at camp has the power to teach each child how to be themselves and accept everyone around them.

Meet personal challenges and grow as a leader

Embrace the opportunity to learn through immersion and exploration. Getting out of our own comfort zones and becoming familiar with other people, locations, and communities leads to new perspectives that even a well-written textbook can’t begin to match. We believe that these hands-on activities combined with an unbelievably beautiful location make our living laboratory the kind of learning experience you can’t get anywhere else.
