Dates:

  • Friday, November 22: GAALS Create It – What Do You Meme?

This fun and silly event kicks off with your daughter being captured on camera with all sorts of poses and expressions. We will then print them all out and work with her to create her own unique captions. She’ll feel empowered when it’s her turn to lead, while others chooses the caption that best suits her photo. Laughs are guaranteed as every girl has a chance to express her creativity.  Each play opens the door to conversations that uncover new things about herself and others, building confidence in communicating and being real!

  • Tuesday, November 26: Unfiltered Photo Shoot 

Our camera will capture all sides of your daughter, as we encourage her to express a wide range of emotions, from joy and surprise, to anger and sadness.  And of course she’ll get a chance to show off her fave features and express herself any way you like. Then, she’ll be encouraged to join in a conversation about becoming more aware of our emotions, expressing our emotions, and accepting (even embracing) our authentic selves.  Lastly, your daughter will then have an opportunity to use the printed photos of herself to create her own artistic masterpiece.

  • Wednesday, November 27: Selfie Scavenger Hunt 

Your daughter will get to decide which will be more fun as she teams up and plays this fast-paced race– trying to solve the witty, tricky questions OR taking wacky, innovative, artistic selfies along the way. While her team racks up points for success in both, she will learn the importance of challenging herself, trying new things, problem solving and competition, all while laughing and having fun along the way.
