Girls Empowerment Camp
Girls Empowerment Camp…. empowering young women through watersports and adventure
For the past two years, we have been hosting a couple of weeks of paddleboard and surf camp, just for pre-teen and teen girls. These camps have been so much fun and rewarding and we can’t wait to do them again.
Girl’s Empowerment Camp Schedule 2017:
June 12th-16th at Turtle Beach at Siesta Key
July 10-14th at Lido Beach
Camps run from 8:30 am-3:30 pm.
Our coaches have developed a surf and paddleboard camp centered around giving girls an experience that will challenge them out of their comfort zones in a safe way. They will leave camp feeling empowered by setting goals, taking on challenges and completing them successfully. After a week of camp girls will become more self-confident in the water and this will translate to their outside life.
Our camps will empower girls by discussing topics such as goal setting, leadership, courage and mindfulness. And because we have the beach as our classroom, girls will be active! By working together, they will learn to recognize their potential as young leaders and role models.
Each week, coaches will teach the basics of paddleboarding and then help girls progress beyond the basics and cover turns, racing starts, maneuvering and more. If the conditions are such that we have surf to play in, the girls will surf. Girls will start by being pushed into waves and will work on catching their own waves, understand timing of waves and staying safe in the ocean, and challenging ourselves to take that next step with surfing. Coaches will also teach yoga, paddleboard yoga and other beach fitness during the course of the day. Guest speakers, including experts in racing, nutrition and fitness will be coming to visit the girls each week. During down time of camp, girls will have journaling and craft activities as well as directed discussion and fun games.
If you have a girl between the ages of 11-17, this is the camp for your daughter! Our amazing coaches, the beauty of our local beaches and learning new skills is the perfect combination to make some great memories this summer.
Sign up today–each camp is limited to 10 participants.
