Elementary School Camps

The Perfect Blend of Fun, Active Games, Art Projects and Meaningful Conversations to Empower Girls. With Our Unique Approach Girls Engage, Try New Things, Make New Friends and Walk Away Feeling Good About Themselves.

Camps for girls in Kindergarten through 5th grade.  The focus of each curriculum is building strong character, as well as recognizing and enhancing the strengths of each girl. Everyone is encouraged to move at their own and set realistic goals.  By applauding positive attitudes, effort and improvement, girls feel good about themselves and their accomplishments.  For many activities, we mix the ages and have found it to be a win-win. The older girls feel good about serving as role models, and enjoy taking on leadership positions.  The younger girls are inspired and motivated as they learn and grow from their older peers.  Program Descriptions

Personal Belongings

  • Special items like electronic devices, purses, dolls/stuffed animals, etc. can be a distraction, so we prefer if you keep them home. If you must bring something, it will stay with your child’s belongings and will not be permitted during our program.

Note: When you are registering in the future and would like to apply your credit, please make a note saying, “ Please apply credit from (insert date you missed).”

On the occasion that GAALS must cancel the event, you will be notified via email and all monies will be reimbursed within 2 weeks in the original form of payment. ​
