Empowerment Camp

Girls face many peculiar challenges and numerous decisions on a daily basis

This camp is designed to build self-esteem in girls aged 11-17 and to impact and influence the decisions that they make. Our founder, DeShawn Snow, believes girls can be empowered and challenged to make a difference in their own lives if they are afforded an opportunity to do so. We have gathered professionals from various fields who are committed to making a difference and who will provide quality instruction to build self-esteem and self-confidence in a fun and exciting environment. Girls who want to take advantage of this unique opportunity to soar should attend this camp!

As our Founder, DeShawn Snow, says:

"Together we can build stepping stones that create success and opportunities for every girl."


"I Can Express Myself" - Communication Through Artistic Expression

This workshop is designed to enhance girls’ self-confidence through various theater exercises. They will focus on voice, diction, stage presence, and character developments, with an emphasis on ensemble work. Campers will have an opportunity to discover the many different ways they can share their self-expression and will be encouraged to showcase their variety of talents in the Night Under the Stars performance. Talents may include spoken word, drama, storytelling, singing, poetry, and dancing. Throughout the week, girls will be able to rehearse under the direction of professionals to allow them to feel comfortable on and off stage.

"I Can Trust Myself" - Making the Right Choices

This workshop is designed to equip girls with the proper tools to become self-aware and self-sufficient. There is nothing more powerful than a young lady who values her self-worth. We will empower the girls by focusing on goal setting, journaling, recognizing and dealing with depression, mother/daughter relationships, and how to effectively deal with peer pressure. We will do so by exploring God’s answers and instructions for dealing with the tough issues they face.
