Cupertino / Los Gatos GIRLS Summer Camp
Why A Girls Camp?
According to Google, self-confidence means, "a feeling of trust in one's abilities, qualities, and judgement." Essentially, confidence is believing in yourself and trusting your abilities. The "idea" of confidence sounds easy, when in fact it is what most girls are missing in their lives. Research shows that girls' self-esteem peaks at age nine. Nine years old. That means by 3rd/4th grade, before they even reach double digits, a girls' self-esteem starts to diminish, allowing insecurities and doubts to take hold.
Since confidence is the foundation of a healthy self-image, our goal is to provide a camp where girls learn to trust and believe in themselves. Our camp community is organized to provide girls with leadership opportunities that will help boost their confidence through sports, art and creativity, and intentional social-emotional learning opportunities.
This is a camp for elementary and middle school aged girls (incoming 2nd-8th graders) that emphasizes principals of self-love, personal power, and the beauty that comes from allowing your light to shine from within. During camp, we will explore a variety of themes through sports, art activities, and conversations. Through camper favorite multi-sport team games, thought-provoking crafts and open dialogue around a variety of topics, Girls Camp creates a safe space where girls can honor their individuality while embracing each other's. Daily topics may include: Gratitude * Positive Friendships * Navigating Bullies * Strong Role Models * Being Proud of their Uniqueness * Healthy Choices * Effective Leadership * Believing in Themselves * Managing Emotions & Developing Interpersonal Skills * Positive Self-Talk * More!

Swimming (Cupertino Only)
**1-2 days during the week, all campers will go to Blackberry Farm for a fun day of sports games and swimming. We walk through Monta Vista High School, and cross McClellan Road at a cross walk with crossing guards to walk down Byrne Road on the side walk to Blackberry Farm. Drop off and pick up at Blackberry Farm is also an option for parents if they want to opt out of having their children walk to Blackberry Farm.
**Swimming - Blackberry Farm is equipped with full time life guards and all children have the option to wear a life jacket (provided by Blackberry Farm) if the parents would like. Our staff also supervises full time on the pool edges and in the pool. Campers are required to pass a swim test by Blackberry Farm lifeguards if they want to go down the water slide or go in the deep end of the pool. Swimming is optional and other games will be provided if you do not want your child to swim or kids choose not to swim. Please call Kim Mercer if you have additional questions: 510-207-8943**
