SUMMER CAMP LEARNING PROGRAM

Girls Inc. of Jacksonville’s Summer Camp Learning Program

Every summer, Girls Inc. of Jacksonville hosts a Summer Camp Learning Program. We offer Summer Camp for girls in elementary middle and high school. We provide comprehensive and fun programming during the summer months to combat summer learning loss and expose girls to different experiences. Summer camp activities include field trips and special programming from community partners.

When I first started Girls Inc. I didn’t think I was smart. I got tired of not making good grades and not knowing the answers to questions in class. Girls Inc. taught me to be responsible and accountable which are the most valuable life lessons I could have ever learned. When I started doing these things my entire life changed; I have seen a huge improvement in my grades and my self-confidence has increased in well. I now believe in myself and I know that the sky is the limit!
