Girls can have fun and develop emotionally at a new summer camp for girls 8 to 16 focused on gardening, creativity, and female empowerment.
Campers will be introduced to urban agriculture through participation in a collective garden as well as weekly field trips to places such as the Santropol garden, beehive collectives and more.
Daily consensus circles create a safe space for young women to practice collective decision-making, to bond and to learn to value themselves and others. Additional activities include swimming, eco-friendly arts and crafts and more.
Each of the four, two-week sessions takes place at Co-op le Milieu, 1251 Robin St. in Montreal, which is a collective art studio and café founded by camp directors Kat Ying and Olga Perju. There are subsidies for low-income families.
