ONE DIME AT A TIME CAMPAIGN
Dear Friends and Community Partners,
We! Made! It! With great privilege, excitement and honor, we embark on hosting our 10th Annual Dear Girls Camp! Since 2009 Dear Girls Camp has provided thousands of girls with the ultimate girls experience, and we say “thank you’ to each of you being a part of the village to make this possible!
Dear Girls Camp is an enrichment sleepaway summer camp for teen girls, preparing girls who are underserved and girls who are directly affected by domestic violence, homelessness or poverty to break the cycle. Our curriculum is intertwined with creative writing, life skills, the arts, health and wellness, and a whole lot of fun to educate and inspire girls to be incredible!
Our campers have opportunities to participate in team building activities, Zumba, swimming, canoeing, yoga, art class, campfire and smores, fitness activities, life skills classes, dance, DIY workshops, self-defense classes, college prep and numerous interactive camp activities. In addition, our topics range from self-worth, self-image and peer pressure to decision making, healthy relationships, grief and so much more.
Our common thread is adversities, perseverance and joy and together we are educating, preparing, and inspiring girls to not only be incredible, but to also live life rising above expectations. Our philosophy; regardless of our role we can all make a difference because it takes a village to create change.
This is where you come in.
For 100 days we are collecting dimes to send girls to Dear Girls Camp “one dime at a time.”! Here’s our BIG ASK. Help us fill empty 16 ounce water bottles with dimes? From January 10th through April 20th we are collecting as many dimes as possible.
To join The One Dime At A Time Campaign, you can register as an individual, team, business or family.
Thank you for helping is celebrate ten years of service!
