A caring community offering great adventures for girls and the support to achieve success. Girls improve their confidence and learn how to work together through activities offered on picturesque Candlewood Lake. While facing the low ropes challenge course, girls gain experience in problem solving and feel the pride of their accomplishment.

Girls grades 4 and up registered for a two-week program have the opportunity for an optional overnight on specific dates for a additional $15 fee.
