Unfortunately, we will not be able to hold any of the planned Duck Trails camps for summer 2020. We are sorry to not be able to provide our programming for families this summer. For more information on this decision, refunds, and plans for future programming, please see the message on the Duck Trails homepage.

About EmpowerU Camps

EmpowerU is a week long immersion experience where middle school-aged girls are encouraged to step outside of their comfort zone, take healthy risks, and develop self-confidence in a supportive community. While exploring their own identities and values, campers will find their voice and learn skills and strategies to navigate the unique challenges that adolescent girls face. 

Who can attend?

Open to all female-identifying adolescents between eleven and fourteen years old.

When is the camp and how long does it last?

EmpowerU Camps take place during the summer months. Each session lasts five days, unless otherwise specified, and goes from 8:30 a.m.–4:30 p.m., Monday–Friday.

What activities will take place?

Our activities empower young women and help them confidently develop their sense of identity.

  • Team-building challenges
  • Fitness activities
  • Meditation
  • Expressive art
  • Guest speakers
  • Group discussion
