Summer camp will build leadership qualities in young girls
Girls in first through fourth grade will develop leadership ability in a summer camp offered for the first time this July. The two-week experience is made possible through support from Schreiber Foods and the Green Bay Packers.
The Girls Leadership and Development (G.L.A.D.) Summer Camp is an initiative led by
Deb Kunkel, who is the wife of college president
Tom Kunkel. It will be taught by Wisconsin-certified young women teachers who have been chosen for their ability to be great role models.
Scholarships are available to ensure that girls from disadvantaged backgrounds will be equally able to benefit from the experience.
Kunkel says, “As a mother of four daughters, I am very aware of the challenges and pressures that girls face today. This summer camp is designed to positively impact the participants by building confidence and leadership skills, fostering positive body image, and setting high-reaching goals."
G.L.A.D. will run mornings for two weeks, July 6-17, from 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. All camp activities will take place on the St. Norbert campus. The $175 fee will include a daily snack, a camp T-shirt and a final-day family celebration.
The girls will be separated into groups based on the grade that they will be entering in the fall of 2009.
