Learn to be a future #LADYBOSS

EmBe’s Girl Ignited™ leadership camp is a unique 4-day summer camp experience that will give girls in grades 6-8 an opportunity to learn what leadership means, and how to be a leader among their peers, at school, and in the community. They’ll be given the opportunity to meet, witness in action, and engage in conversation with women in our community in leadership roles and who have have chosen non-traditional career paths. Girls also will learn leadership and team building skills through a ropes challenge course at the YMCA Leif Ericson campsite. Each girl will participate in the Real Colors Personality Assessment, giving the girls an opportunity to learn about themselves and how to communicate with others around them. Dream boards are created for the girls to set goals and continue working towards those. The girls will also learn from professionals in personal finance, and have opportunities to learn about giving back in community service.

Camp Date:
July 22-25

Camp is held at our Downtown EmBe location from 8:30am-4:30pm.  We will spend a fair amount of time traveling throughout the city of Sioux Falls meeting with many amazing women right here in our own community.  Camp sessions are limited to 14 participants each week.
