Garryn, Camp Graduate 2019
Camp Girl Boss gave me opportunities that no other camp has. It allowed me to make new friends, learn new things, and be able to teach others the things I learned at the camp. It sparked new ideas and made me want to become an entrepreneur myself. I wouldn’t have the courage and opportunities I have today if it wasn’t for Camp Girl Boss.
Lamonda, Camp Parent 2019
Camp girl boss gave my daughter the opportunity to combine her leadership skills and creativity to design an effective business model driven by her passions. She gained in-depth knowledge about becoming an entrepreneur which led her to create her very own successful tutoring business! This program gives young girls the confidence to set goals and take the steps to reach them.
Zonta Club of Franklin NC, Camp Host 2019
We hosted Camp Girl Boss for 14 girls last summer in Franklin, NC. Introducing an entrepreneurial experience combined with a business mindset taught the CGB attendees invaluable skills. Watching the “campers” transition during the week as they gained knowledge, skills, and confidence was amazing. CGB set the foundation for them to be a step ahead as they continue their educational journey.
