Girls will change the world.

Every person's future should be determined by their talents, dreams and hard work - not their gender. But girls face a confusing set of messages about their looks, their voices, their behaviour and their ambitions. Too often, those who show early signs of leadership are shut down and called "bossy".

Spice! day camps help preteen and teenage girls* find the tools to smash through their self-doubt - and through the glass ceiling.

Each participant discovers her own passions and strengths, then builds the skills that will make her a more confident, effective leader. In the process, she develops a network of ambitious girls who will inspire and support her as she grows into her leadership potential.


Topics include:

  • setting goals and making plans to achieve them
  • good work habits
  • teamwork
  • communication skills
  • media literacy
  • managing money
  • history and government
  • public speaking
  • healthy living and body image
