By promoting assertive self-expression, teaching important life skills, and allowing the practice of leadership in a variety of setting, this unique and transformational pre-high school summer program inspires girls to reach their full potential.
Program Areas of Focus:
Our Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics (STEAM) workshops are designed to engage and inspire girls to pursue interests and careers in STEAM, a field that currently has 24% female representation in California. STEAM trainers provide hands-on summer camp activities, lead engaging presentations on their areas of expertise, and create a space for girls to ask questions about their journeys in STEAM.
The whole girl experience is valued and uplifted at Camp Rosie. In addition to STEAM education, campers receive workshops on building healthy relationships, bystander intervention, and stress reduction techniques including yoga, journaling, and breathing exercises. Each camper participates in Safe Dates, a violence prevention curriculum used throughout the week of camp, which aims to challenge attitudes and beliefs related to violence, while promoting new skills that support girls’ safety and empowerment.
Through art and culture workshops and group processing sessions, campers learn about different cultures and experiences through an affirming social justice lens. Campers participate in poetry, journaling, photography, and art workshops, using different mediums to express themselves and to connect with their camp cohort. Each day, campers check in as a group to process different topics that promote connection and community.
Camp Rosie helps girls prepare for their future by providing them with learning opportunities, skill building activities, and engagement with role models as they explore their own leadership pathways. Campers are provided with training on their legal rights as youth, participate in college tours, create business plans through financial planning workshops, and hear from women who have stepped into leadership roles in the public and private sectors.
