Spring Break Camp 2021

"Reducing Our Carbon Footprint"

Carbon footprint: A footprint is a mark you leave by walking but the way you live also leaves a mark. Many things we do in life, such as producing energy, driving cars and raising livestock, generate gases that contribute to climate change, and almost all of these gases are carbon compounds. That’s why the effect your life has on climate change is called your carbon footprint.

During this 5-day camp, we'll explore different ways we can reduce our carbon footprint through hands-on activities, discussions, arts and crafts, and problem-solving challenges.

Spring Break activities will include:

  • understanding The Great Pacific Garbage Patch

  • oil spill cleanup simulation

  • upcycled t-shirt tote bags

  • calculating gas use and alternative transportation

  • paper-making

  • nature walk to Laurelhurst park for lunch

  • and more!

Summer Camp 2021

This summer, we'll empower girls to explore new ideas, be active participants in their own education, and think creatively alongside their peers. Each week, we'll cover a range of real-life activities like how to cook on a budget or how to become an active participant in your community, and provide creative free time in our Maker Space. 

Summer activities will include: 

  • creating recipes and shopping on a budget*

  • learning about local nonprofits and organizations  

  • honing problem-solving skills 

  • creating digital designs

  • publishing a zine

  • and more! 

*All recipes will be made vegan and nut free with considerations for allergies and dietary restrictions.

Activities do not repeat!

Spend your summer being empowered with your peers.
