"As a mother of four daughters, I am very aware of the challenges and pressures that girls face today. We believe (GLAD Camp) will be a transformative experience for the girls, instilling a can-do spirit and confidence that will stay with them as they mature into young women prepared to make good choices." – Deb Kunkel, wife of SNC president Thomas Kunkel.

GLAD™ Camp: Helping Girls Set Their Sights on a Limitless Future

Each summer, GLAD Camp engages girls in grades one through eight in fun, exciting, esteem-building activities. Taught by Wisconsin-certified female teachers chosen for their ability to serve as positive role models, GLAD Camp builds confidence and leadership skills, fosters positive body image, and encourages girls to set high-reaching goals.

GLAD Camp Goals & Objectives
GLAD Camp’s exceptional program goals are based on developing girls’ confidence and positive self-image by:

  • Proving opportunities for young girls of all backgrounds to interact in a safe, small-group environment.
  • Enhancing appreciation of diversity and respect for others.
  • Developing a sense of self-worth and self-esteem.
  • Developing a sense of independence and self-reliance.
  • Recognizing and building healthy relationships.
  • Identifying, expressing and respecting emotions.
  • Developing respect and knowledge of their individual gifts and talents.
  • Promoting healthy life choices through nutrition and physical fitness.
  • Gaining knowledge and confidence in math, science and technology.


All camp activities take place on the beautiful campus of St. Norbert College. The registration fee includes lunch, a daily snack, a camp T-shirt and an end-of-camp family celebration. A limited number of scholarships are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

GLAD Camp has been filled to capacity every year since its founding!
