Happy summer! We hope you have fantastic plans as things start to open up after a summer of staying at home during 2020.

There are great opportunities to get your kids engaged and empowered! GirlSpring is offering SHEcamp, where participants will enjoy sisterhood, humor, and empowerment. Gross Out Camp teaches your kids about science in a fun and engaging way. Using self-directed activities, the camp helps develop critical thinking skills.
