Leadership Camp for High School Girls

High school is a critical time for girls to develop leadership skills, self-awareness, and confidence. For this unique program, Avid4 Adventure is partnering with MergeLane, a leader in accelerating the growth potential of female leaders. Featured in Forbes, Inc. Magazine, and on MSNBC, MergeLane is a Boulder-based accelerator that invests in and supports female-led businesses.

At Leadership Camp, girls will ask challenging, introspective questions to develop a personal brand of leadership, hone communication skills, and plan life goals.  They will also stretch their limits through outdoor adventure sports designed to refine their teamwork skills and grow their confidence.  Each day will be a blend of indoor activities based at entrepreneurial incubator, Galvanize, and outdoor activities at beautiful crags, trails, and the Boulder reservoir.  

Surrounded by an encouraging community of girls, expert executive coaches, and certified outdoor educators, participants will come away from this program energized, confident, and ready to take on the world.
