The single-gender environment offered for girls at Sacajawea Day Camp, including these film and photography programs, creates an inclusive, safe space in which girls are free to explore their potential and take the lead without the distractions or pressures that can be found in a coed environment. For each of these programs, girls spend half their day specializing in an area that’s their passion. During the remainder of the camp day, they participate in traditional camp activities.
All girls in grades kindergarten – 8th grade can participate in this program this week as we explore a different sport every day. We’ll play softball, basketball, soccer and volleyball. This is non-competitive, fun! We’ll spend the mornings playing sports and the afternoon participating in camp activities. On our last day, we will spend time revisiting our favorite sports from earlier in the week.
