ability to express ones self through music can be powerful and cathartic.

Self Reflective Art Projects
In the spirit of encouraging creativity through art, the GirlSing camp includes individual and collaborative art projects (indoor and outdoor). Each art project gives the girls and opportunity to express and describe what makes them unique and allows them to share the special gifts they have to give to the world. Some art projects will also give the girls the opportunity to illustrate their connection to a favorite song learned in the Camp!
Indoor & Outdoor Singing, Games, Fun & Field Trips!
In addition to singing indoors, we also spend time singing, journaling and writing lyrics in nature (e.g., along sourdough creek). When the spirit moves us, we bring smiles to people's faces when the girls share a spontaneous, joyful song while out and about. It's important to note that singing in front of and for people is always a "choice." The GirlSing camp emphasizes the joyful gift of sharing a song and a beautiful message with others and isn't focused on "performing" or "perfection."
