Camp Rosie & YW Strive 2022
June 20th – 24th | July 11th – 15th | July 25th – 29th
Camp Rosie is a week-long summer camp designed to empower and educate girls and those who identify with female development entering grades 6th-9th in Glendale, Pasadena, Burbank, and surrounding school districts. Workshops and activities will focus on STEAM education, arts and culture, life skills and healthy relationships, and leadership and civic engagement. By promoting assertive self-expression, teaching important life skills, and fostering the practice of leadership in a variety of settings, this unique and transformational pre-high school summer program inspires girls to reach their full potential. Every girl will receive a supply package to support their camp activities. Girls who complete their one-week session will receive a $50 gift card.
This year, in the YW Strive for Teens workshop series, girls will prepare for the future and deepen their leadership and digital skills, tools for success, and financial literacy through activities that value identity and diversity. The workshops will include diverse women guest speakers, entrepreneurship, civic engagement, career exploration, and connections to higher education. Campers that complete YW Strive will be awarded a Certificate of Completion in recognition of their pathways to success.
Camp Rosie and YW Strive will take place at YWCA Glendale and Pasadena, located at 735 E. Lexington Dr., Glendale, CA 91202.
Camp Rosie will give local girls a chance to attend summer camp despite financial difficulties, thanks to our continued partnership with Las Candelas, Kiwanis of Glendale, National Charity League – Glendale, and support from individual donors, and private and corporate foundations.
YW Strive for Teens is supported in part by the Starbucks Foundation.
