Girls TAASC is an opportunity for girls to create a safe and welcoming environment where they can grow through discovery and development of their strengths.
Through games and problem solving activities, art, reflection, and instruction of adventure outdoor skills, we talk about how girls perceive themselves and women in society. We examine how girls and women are often seen and heard and how this reality can affect their leadership style.
The program aims to build community, develop leadership, and foster individual growth, as well as build close relationships among group members. Students will develop their inner and outer strength in an all-female environment where they can discover courage and abilities they didn’t know were there. Mindfulness, compassion and caring will also be explored.
Mostly though, this program will create the opportunity for a new generation of female leaders to learn, grow and develop in an outdoor setting in a way that is best for them.
Girls TAASC will be run by several of the amazing women in our community: Lucy McGregor, Becky Kluge and Beth Hockman. All of these ladies have worked for Outward Bound and bring deep experience in various educational backgrounds. We are all very lucky to have their energy, wisdom and magic to be shared with young girls from our community.
