Girls Day Camp
The Centre is committed to creating inclusive spaces for girls to find their own voices and be empowered. Our girls day camps and International Day of the Girl celebrations offer activities focused on self-esteem, personal development and empowerment. Camps typically offered during the summer and March Break at various locations throughout Pictou County.
Groups offer women an unique opportunity to come together and find their your own voices. Being in a group can help break down isolation and create safe spaces to talk about shared concerns.
Self Esteem and empowerment are central themes in all of the Centre’s group programs.
