Leadership Camp for High School Girls

Whether you are a high school girl or a parent of a teenage girl, you know that one of the biggest opportunities we can give young girls is the chance to see their highest potential.  Let’s face it, we all could use someone cheering us on and making clear to us everything we are capable of.  In this new program, Avid4 Adventure is partnering with MergeLane, a Boulder-based company that invests in and coaches female business leaders. In one week, our goal is to provide you with a transformative experience where you will unlock your strengths and discover your personal leadership style.

You don’t have to be in front of crowds to be a leader. Each of us has unique gifts and character traits that make up our “leadership style”.  We will help you identify your strengths, plan life goals, and work on the communication skills you need to pursue whatever dreams you have for your life.  Avid4 Adventure’s top-notch instructors will also take you to beautiful outdoor settings to climb, bike, and paddle (no experience required!), tapping into new confidence that can’t be found in a classroom.  Each day will be a blend of indoor activities based at the cool downtown location for start up businesses, Galvanize, and outdoor activities at amazing crags, trails, and the Boulder reservoir.  

Surrounded by an encouraging community of girls, business leader coaches, and certified outdoor educators, you should come away from this program energized, confident, and ready to take on the world.

MORNING: Uncovering Strengths & Leadership
AFTERNOON: Adventure Sports

In the mornings you’ll head to downtown Boulder for interactive workshops with your fellow participants led by business coach, Sue Heilbronner, and her team. While activities will change every day, a consistent underpinning will be a supportive group and zero ego. Exercises each day will include activities like uncovering your “Zones of Genius”, the things you excel at most easily, setting a vision for your life, or developing your communication style.  We keep the atmosphere fun and full of conversation. By the end of the week, you’ll have discovered new things about yourself, found your leadership style, and formed great connections with your peers. 


In the afternoons, you’ll pile into a van with your peers and Avid4 Adventure instructors to set off for an outdoor adventure. Each day will be a new sport:  biking, paddling, climbing, and more. Whether you’ve experienced theses sports or not, Avid4 Adventure instructors are skilled at setting up a supportive environment for everyone including beginners, intermediate, and advanced alike. The goal is to have fun, learn new skills, and discover a little more about yourself through the outdoors.  At the end of the day, the van takes everyone back to camp, and the adventure resumes the next day!  




Sue is a CEO, founder, speaker, advisor, investor, mentor, professor, former civil rights attorney, creative visionary, operator, and catalyst. As co-founder and CEO of MergeLane, a fund and accelerator targeting companies with at least one woman in leadership. Sue works closely with high-potential leaders, executive teams, and growth companies on topics including conscious leadership, partner dynamics, and in various growth-focused areas of business. “Sue is PHENOMENAL! She dives in to your strengths to truly understand your style and give the development coaching best suited for you. That alone makes the time spent with her gold.” – Nadya Nguyen, CEO Hidrate

However you describe them, Avid4 Adventure instructors are a breed apart. They’re insatiable outdoors experts with serious safety and skills training.  They get crazy high marks from campers and parents alike. They’re also talented teachers with the rare ability to connect with you, make you feel comfortable, and inspire you to push your limits. 

“Working with Avid4 allowed me to develop my skills and solidify my comfort being outdoors, in the sense that I personally gained crucial skills, but also in the sense that I learned the ins and outs of being a strong and assertive force.” – Sophie Kelly, age 17
