She Can Summer Camp! 2024

She Can! is taking what we do best in our core programs and turning them into a full day, full week summer camp program that will help to raise funds to support the sustainability of our FREE programs throughout the year!  

She Can! Summer Camp is girl-centred and designed to empower and uplift girls in our community. Just as She Can! core programs foster strength, leadership and resilience, She Can Summer Camp! Provides girls and gender-diverse youth an opportunity to explore a variety of topics and themes that are top of mind for young girls and to arm them with the skills and confidence they need to navigate through challenges that life throws at them.  

Each week revolves around our core program topics where facilitators will design hands-on activities to provoke thinking, push problem-solving, and create opportunities for social connection 

Sign up for one week or every week and be a part of the She Can! movement to support girls empowerment.
