Julia Morgan School for Girls – Girls Summer Camp

Dates: Jun 15, 2020 – Jun 26, 2020
Registration: Click to register »

JMSG Girls Summer Camp offers unique programming for girls entering 3rd/4th grades and for girls entering 5th/6th grades.

The 3rd/4th program focuses on building community and empowering girls to express themselves authentically through art and movement.

The 5th/6th program invites inspirational guests to share about their careers and lead workshops with the girls, with the aim of encouraging girls to imagine themselves in professions where women are traditionally underrepresented.

Each session of Camp is one week long and will have a variety of activities as well as a project theme. Girls may choose to enroll in one or both sessions. Every day the girls will engage in activities that are planned by JMSG faculty and designed to serve all learning styles. Most activities include a creative component, group work, and opportunity for self-reflection. Activities may include: learning dances, playing music, writing and performing poetry, exploring science, making nature-inspired art, practicing yoga, and playing sports or games. The community time between activities is led by JMSG alum who volunteer to be teaching assistants in the summer program.

A significant number of campers return each year and many ultimately apply to JMSG for the academic school year: JMSG Girls Summer Camp is the perfect way to experience the magic of an all-girls setting and our fun, confidence-building culture in a few weeks of summer.
