EmpowHer Camp is a fun and exciting one year program for youth* with disabilities ages 13-18. EmpowHer Camp starts with one week of adventurous camping in the Adirondacks where we explore nature, make friends, and laugh around the campfire. We also connect with mentors who will help us set goals and achieve them! After our camping trip is over, you’ll go home and work on a project that interests you and you’ll talk with your mentor every month! Next summer, Young Leaders (what we call our participants) and their mentors go on a trip to Washington, D.C.! In D.C. you will reunite with your friends and mentor, present your project, and explore our nation’s capital!
*For the purpose of this program, the terminology “youth”, “young women”, and “girls” include cis or trans girls or other feminine aligned people.
