Connections | June 2014
Every Woman's Place for Support, Connections and Community.
Girl Power is back!
It's time for Girl Power summer camps again at the Women's Centre! Girl Power provides opportunities for girls to share their stories, connect with other girls, participate in a variety of fun activities and learn about issues that are important to girls like self-esteem, healthy relationships, and activism in a safe, supportive, girls-only environment.

The week-long day camps are open to all girls ages 10-12, and will take place on the weeks of July 14-18, July 21-25 and August 11-15.
Camps are free of charge and are offered Monday to Thursday: 9am-4pm and Friday: 9am - 12:30pm. All supplies, snacks and lunches are provided. Bus tickets are also available if needed.

Registration is now open for all three camps. Priority will be given to girls who haven't attended Girl Power in the past.
To register, please email Linda or call us at 
403-264-1155. More information about the camps here.
