Girls Link Up Summer Program
The Girls Link Up Summer Camp will support rising 3rd-8th grade girls. Our program supports the social and emotional needs of adolescent girls all while exposing and empowering them to pursue STEAM (science, technology, [entrepreneurship], arts, and math) pathways. We focus on bridging the learning gap by providing academic support in the mornings and cultural enrichment activities in the afternoons. This four week, full-day camp will be jam-packed with hands-on activities, field trips and mentoring.
