Summer Camp Kickoff
JACKSONVILLE, FL (May 17, 2010)
Girls Inc. of Jacksonville will open their summer camp doors June 14, 2010. Girls Inc. summer camp is designed to empower girls, ages five to fifteen, to understand and value themselves with originality and enthusiasm.
This summer of fun will kick off at the Girls Inc. Spring Park and Arlington Outreach centers, as well as the brand new Riverside Baptist Church location. Camp will run Monday through Friday, 7:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and will feature a unique theme for each of the nine weeks of camp. Each week will include a field trip that intertwines with that week’s theme.
“Mad Science Week” is one of the many themes the girls will be introduced to that will provide them with hands-on activities filled with adventure and explorations at the Museum of History and Science.
Throughout the weeks of summer camp, girls will also be introduced to an interactive economic literacy program for one hour a day. This program will highlight recognizing and counting money, budgeting and saving and career building.
For more information on the camp’s weekly themes and activities, please contact Lina Skeim at 904-731-9933 or firstname.lastname@example.org. For further questions, visit the Girls Inc. website at www.girlsincjax.org
