We have seen that girls lay the foundation for leadership at Crestridge. Skilled counselors who understand girls and their learning style can spark a girl's interest in non-traditional areas. They can encourage a young lady to dream outside of the box and pursue their interests.
The comfort level attained at a girls’ camp is excellent, helping girls develop greater self-confidence and decision making ability. It promotes both competition and collaboration at the same time. Girls tend to ignore gender stereotypes and develop their competitive side more fully in a single gender setting while working together with others. There are no boys to impress and a sense of self is cemented during their stay.
The games and activities we provide are focused on girls; each one designed to determine gifts and abilities and exploit them. A program that caters to females has flexibility unavailable to coed systems. In creating program we identify that which connects with girls and build it around their needs. From cheerleading to mountain biking, these skills are taught in a manner that is girl-specific.
During a session, the girls and boys will see each other at least 1-2 times. However, you can see our belief in the tangible benefits of single-gender camping. This has been part of our mission since 1955 and we hope your child will enjoy this environment along with all that Crestridge has to offer.
