DAY CAMP IS A MIX OF ROUTINE AND ORGANIC ADVENTURE AS WE ROAM OUR CITY'S NATURAL AREAS LIKE A ROVING BAND OF WONDER. WE'LL MEET UP WITH LOCAL ARTISTS, EXPLORERS, AND LADY HEROES THROUGHOUT THE WEEK, FINDING POWER IN PLACE, AND CONNECTING THROUGH THE GLUE OF SISTERHOOD AND PLAY.

ON THE LAST DAY OF CAMP, PARENTS ARE WELCOME TO COME MIX AND MINGLE AS WE CAP OFF OUR FOUR-DAY POWER BLAST WITH A CULMINATING CELEBRATION FROM 4-5 PM. 

WHY? NOW MORE THAN EVER, WE NEED FEARLESS GIRLS TO BECOME FEARLESS WOMEN. FERAL GIRLS CAMP IS A PLACE FOR GIRLS TO BE THEIR ABSOLUTE, UNHINDERED SELVES.  LET'S TAKE REFUGE FROM A WORLD THAT SOMETIMES FEELS LIMITING, AND REMEMBER WHO WE ARE AND WHO WE CAN BE.   LET'S LET OUR INNER DRAGONS BREATHE FIRE AND GET CHARGED UP FOR BIG LIVES AHEAD.
