About the program

Finding Your Voice is a safe place to provide adolescent girls with the opportunity to foster self-esteem, self-expression and self-efficacy by engaging in outdoor recreational activities and educational health seminars. It's a weekend camp open to girls in grades six to eight. This camp is free and includes meals and activities such as yoga, kayaking, self-defense and high ropes.
