Donated towards $317.00 Goal
July 18, 2017
Camp LiveGirl (July 24-28 at New Canaan High School) will bring together 100 local middle school girls from across Fairfield County for a week of leadership development and girl empowerment in a fun, diverse, team-based environment.
In the mornings, girls complete “Leaders in Action” and hear from inspiring keynote speakers, including a Silicon Valley VP, a global Chief Financial Officer, a construction management President, and a fashion CEO/entrepreneur. In the afternoons, girls select either multi-sports or musical theatre and explore new interests, including coding, poetry, yoga, self-defense and more! To date, we have been able to extend more than 50 full scholarships based upon financial need for girls to attend Camp LiveGirl. Unfortunately, we still have a waitlist of 13 girls who qualify for financial aid and need a scholarship to attend camp.
Every person who donates to this crowdfunding campaign will receive a framed art square and handwritten thank you letter from a scholarship recipient.

I also learned to be bold, curious, and embrace my wacky, weird self.” (Ahhsha Crooks, Stamford Boys & Girls Club, 2016 Scholarship Recipient)
