Launching Girl Leaders
“Getting What You Want” Summer Day Camp
THE MOST IMPORTANT DECISIONS OF YOUR LIFE
The most important decisions of our lives are made between the ages of 14-22. Think about it….during those years you decide where to go to college, what to major in, who to live with, whether to have sex, use a condom, drink and drive, text and drive, use drugs, text your boyfriend that photo, max out your credit card, get a tattoo….you name it, it happens during these years! Yet the frontal lobes (the part of the brain that predicts the consequences of your actions) isn’t fully formed until 25!
SO WHAT DO WE DO?
Talk till we’re blue in the face (even if they roll their eyes!)? Cross your fingers and hope for the best? Tell them the world is scary and they should be afraid? Keep them away from bad influences (peers, TV, movies, snap chat, cell phones, you tube, advertising)? OR……
SEND THEM TO TORIE’S “GETTING WHAT YOU WANT” LEADERSHIP CAMP!
Now is the time to give girls the information they need to make good decisions and teach them how to listen to their own inner GPS. This camp will encourage your child to be the expert on themselves and understand their influencers, motivations, and values. “Just be yourself” and “listen to your gut” are confusing for girls this age. But teaching them what their inner wisdom sounds like, when to know if something is right for them, how to manage their mind and make it work to their benefit, these are the tools we all need to make healthy decisions that last a lifetime.
WHAT WILL THEY LEARN?
How to get what they want out of life & how to know what it is they really want! How to tell the truth from a lie. How to tune in to their internal GPS and let it guide them towards a fun and fabulous life specifically designed for by their highest self. Understand values, instincts and intuition and how to use them to make decisions. How to resolve peer conflicts in self-respecting ways and quiet the mean-girl voice in our heads. We’ll learn the difference between good fear and bad fear. How to spot crazy coming down the street, and AVOID it! How to make annoying people fun! How to fail brilliantly and quit successfully. All taught through interactive games, art and fun activities.
Here’s what the girls had to say:
“This camp is an easy way to find answers to questions you’ve been asking about yourself.”
“I really liked this camp because no one is judging you here. Everyone is appreciated.”
“I learned the power of myself and my mind.”
“I learned about my essential self and how to stay true to it.”
“I learned what I do is normal.”
“I learned I am important in the world.”
“I was surprised to learn that other girls can help me discover and reach my goals.”
