Categories: Archival, Programs


(June 19, 2018) From July 16th though August 10th, the YWCA Pasadena-Foothill Valley will hold its Girls Rise Leadership Camp. This unique, all-girls summer camp is based at the YWCA Pasadena offices, located at 50 N. Hill Ave, Suite 301, Pasadena, CA 91106. It will run Monday through Friday, 8:30 am to 4:30 pm.

This exciting summer program emphasizes girls’ empowerment through workshops and team-building exercises, along with technology and art projects. The camp teaches life skills such as healthy relationships, nutrition, self-defense, and physical fitness. It also incorporates the value of culture through workshops and field trips to the Huntington Library & Gardens, Olvera Street, and Griffith Observatory. Additionally,  girls prepare for the future through the camps’ diverse female guest speakers, tours of Caltech, Cal Poly Pomona, and Pasadena City College, as well as learning entrepreneurship and civic engagement.

The YWCA Pasadena also partners with the Huntington Library and Gardens to undertake a diverse set of workshops. Participants will explore  female artists’ art, learn plant science, participate in art workshops and lessons in the gardens, and learn about conservation.
