Girls Create Summer Camps 2024

July 11 @ 9:00 am

$275

Girls Create is a summer camp program for playwriting, stand-up, fashion design, and self-expression through art. The program teaches girls and non-binary youth (6th through 10th grade) various aspects of these art forms in a unique way–we prioritize bringing in professionals from the community to teach the programs, guest artists to share their expertise, and utilize mentors from the community to provide guidance during the creative process. Each week-long program culminates in a final weekly project for the community, including friends and family of the girls and non-binary youth, to experience their work. All Girls Create camps will be held in-person from 9am-3pm MT Monday-Friday at various locations in Metro Denver.

The mission of Girls Create is to empower girls and non-binary youth to lead and effect change in themselves and others through creative learning. Girls Stand-Up, Girls Write, Girls Design Fashion, and Girls Artfully Minded seek to encourage girls and non-binary youth to tap into their creativity, gain confidence, and do what they love.

Girls Design Fashion takes our campers behind the scenes of the fashion world. They will explore what fashion design can be with various guest artists who will introduce campers to sources of inspiration, design techniques, easy ways to upcycle and the importance of sustainability. This camp not only provides a fun creative outlet, but also helps develop key life skills like innovation, focus, planning, and problem-solving.
A fashion show for family and friends will top off this week of confidence and community building!
