Girls Leadership Collaborative
P.O. Box 854
North Kingstown, RI 02852 401-265-2089
GLC's 2 camp offerings are designed for our partnership with Lincoln School and features GLC’s signature elements including the high and low ropes course, Gallup’s Strengths-Explorer tool, group challenges and engaging experiences designed to challenge girls to practice self- expression and productive risk-taking. Girls will spend time in leadership lab groups (10-12 girls), two per division; rising 3rd-5th and 6th-8th. We partner among the divisions using a big-sister/little sister pairing for modeling, and every participant will have a buddy we call “mirror” in her lab group for debriefing and for specific activities. Using brain-based research-driven short micro-sessions, girls learn the neurobiology and drivers of decision-making, risk-taking, and blindspots. This camp welcomes returning girls and those new to GLC in grades 3 through 8. Girls will enjoy social time, interacting with guest practitioners in yoga and mindfulness exercises to help quiet the mind. In addition, the camp will provide girls with the opportunity to select from a variety of themes that interest them related to leadership such as: public speaking, design-thinking challenges, our signature game-changer speaker series, exploration of political, environmental, or social activism, designing service learning opportunities, and outcome-oriented conflict resolution techniques. With a focus on FUN, we will build critical skills, confidence, and connectedness. Grades 3-5 & 6-8 Location: Lincoln School 9:00 am - 3:00 pm M-F. Week1: July 24-28 & July 31-Aug 4, 2023.
