Is this camp right for me?
Most likely, yes! This is a space for girls, trans and nonbinary youth aged 10-14 with an interest in creativity. Our goal is to create a safe space where everyone feels welcome. Introverts, extroverts and in between! You do not need to have experience, this camp is more about finding your voice and experimenting with various forms of expression than focusing on the final product.
What about lunch?
We ask that campers bring their own bag lunch everyday, but if that is challenging we can work on a solution to provide your camper a lunch. Just let us know.
Is camp indoors?
Yes, Camp is indoors at the spacious Cottonwood Community Center located in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. However, lunch will take place at McGolrick Park or indoors at Cottonwood if its raining.
Is there A.C.?
Yes! There is air conditioning in the Community Center.
How large will the group of campers be?
The workshop is limited to 12 participants.
What is the ratio of mentors to campers?
The ratio is 1 mentor for every 6 campers. Mentors are counselors/coaches and workshop facilitators.
What is the age range of campers?
The age range of campers is 10-14 years old.
Why aren't boys included?
We wanted to create a unique zone where girls, trans, and non-binary youth are the majority. We hope this helps cultivate a safe space for self expression and risk-taking.
Are cell phones allowed?
We're glad you asked! We ask that you leave your cell phone with us or in your bag and only check messages at lunch. This is to help create a focused environment where everyone can be present with each other in the room. The Camp Councilor and Coach will have a phone on at all times in case of emergencies.
What should I bring everyday? Does it matter what I wear?
During the summer, please bring a water bottle, sunscreen or a hat, and a bag lunch. Wear comfortable clothes you can move in as we will be doing some active group exercises, movement and sitting on the floor. You might want to bring a long sleeved shirt if you tend to get cold in A.C. (during summer session)
Will there be snacks?
Yes! We will provide light individually packaged snacks throughout the day during breaks. We will only include snacks everyone can eat. Please let us know of any allergies or intolerances.
