Girl Power Day

Girl Power Day is a fun action packed day for girls 10-14 years old to develop high self-esteem, confidence and self-knowledge through creative activities. Girl Power Day focuses on issues important to girls like friendship, positive thinking, body image, healthy eating, relaxation skills, and movement; and embraces a holistic approach of mind body and spirit.

What happens in Girl Power Day?

  • Positive Self Image and the Media: Girls learn the importance of having positive thoughts about themselves and their bodies.  They will learn how to change downward spiraling thoughts into upward spiraling thoughts.  We will also address the media’s influence on girls’ self image.


  • Healthy Friendships and Cybersafety: Friendship is essential to girls but often there are conflicts and friction.  Also, more and more communication is happening in the cyber world and girls need to learn how to keep themselves safe both physically and emotionally online; and how to respect others too.
  • Healthy Cooking: Girls will prepare and cook a healthy vegetarian lunch as well as learn about nutrition and importance of healthy eating
  • Wisdom from Within: Girls often have stress over homework, tests and friendships.  It is so important for girls to learn techniques like meditation, breathing, and creative visualizations to learn to self calm and feel good.
  • Movement and Dance: Girls will have fun learning to belly dance, as exercise and movement makes girls feel great and empowered.
