This past summer, we launched a pilot, weeklong summer camp called Finding the Fabulous…In Me, for girls, ages 8-12. Our goal is to use that foundation to expand this year and in the years to come. Though we had amazing, committed volunteers last year, we would now like to focus on building a more permanent team that would take more of an active role in planning the camp as we begin to branch out and expand our venture. Including us, we had 7 full-time counselors between the ages of thirteen and twenty-one and eight additional volunteers who donated their time throughout the week. In addition, we would like to focus our efforts on advertising to make more families aware of what is being offered in their community. For the coming year we would like to advertise through the town that our facility is located in by hanging banners and putting an ad on the town’s television station, as well as distribute flyers in the surrounding middle and elementary schools. Now that we have an idea of what obstacles we may encounter, we will be better equipped in our preparations. Because we received such positive feedback from girls, parents, and volunteers who participated in our pilot, an eventual goal would also be to extend the camp for longer than one week. This month we also hosted our first outreach program with a Girls Scout troop. The girls responded really well and we have been invited back to host another event in May.
