YWCA Corpus Christi is on a mission to teach young girls the importance of staying in school, the value of strong relationships, the skills to overcome bullying behaviors, and techniques for improving their personal self-image.
How better to accomplish that during the summer months than with camps for 5th and 6th girls?
YWCA Leadership Camps are four-day camps which take place from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. each day at the YWCA Corpus Christi (4601 Corona Drive).
During the course of the camp, girls learn friend-making, teamwork, decision-making and more, while meeting community role models in a variety of careers. Plus, each day includes swimming along with a variety of other activities.
According to camp organizers, girls leave after just one four-day session with higher self-confidence, greater interest in school, better friend making and keeping skills, more respect and acceptance of others and a clearer ability to set and attain goals.
The cost of the camp is $110, with some scholarships available.
Camp sessions that still have openings, include:
- July 8-11
- July 15-18
- July 22-25
- July 29-August 1
- August 5-8
- August 12-15
- August 16 Movie and swim night open to all summer camp participants.
Healthy lunches and snacks are provided, and each girl should bring a swimsuit and a towel each day.
