The YWTeens Leadership Camps are intensive, four-day workshops designed to teach group dynamics, leadership skills and multi-cultural communication skills. During the summer months of June and July the camps provide girls the opportunity to express their own creativity; open their eyes to their personal strengths, qualities and values; be a leader in a tough world; explore continuing education choices and career options; and establish short and long-term goals and the steps it takes to be successful in achieving their goals.

Camp participants get to visit with a variety of guest speakers and community leaders during the workshop. Many of the guest speakers have overcome the same obstacles that today’s young girls face, and they enjoy sharing their stories. The speakers introduce new ideas about higher education and future career choices and encourage the girls to reach higher with greater confidence.

The workshop ends with a graduation ceremony to acknowledge the strengths and accomplishments of each girl. With a certificate, new friends, and hilarious memories, the girls leave the camp with new goals and the confidence to go out and achieve those goals.

The camp has been funded by friends of the YWCA, so there is no cost for girls. The camps are open to all girls who will be entering the 5th and 6th grades in the fall of 2022. Girls may select any one of the seven four-day camps offered throughout the summer.  Due to a high demand, we will open the camp to girls entering the 7th and 8th grades in the fall if we have at least 15 sign up for the same week.  If you will be entering the 7th or 8th grade in the fall, consider registering for the week of July 11-14, 2022.

Holiday Camps are scheduled for Spring Break, Thanksgiving, and Christmas break. Summer Leadership Camps are scheduled for June and July. Check for availability. All Leadership Camps take place at YWCA, 4601 Corona. To register, complete the form. For more information, contact the YWTeen Program Director at (361) 857-5661, ext. 106 or ywtdirywca@ywcacc.org.
