Women’s Freedom Center offers summer camp for local girls

BRATTLEBORO — The Women's Freedom Center is offering Quest Camp, a free summer camp for all girls entering grades 7-9. This five-day program is designed to empower girls through leadership development and a focus on healthy relationships.

Organizers say the camp provides a fun and supportive space for girls to consider their relationships with friends, dating partners, the media, food, and nature.

Campers also will develop strategies to navigate adolescence and more deliberately create positive change in their immediate lives and in the wider world.

Time is set aside for art projects, media critiques, hiking, swimming, and games.

Quest Camp is offered in Bellows Falls July 29 to Aug. 2, and in Brattleboro Aug. 5 to 9. Both camps meet from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Lunch and snack are provided, and transportation assistance is available.

The Women's Freedom Center is a local organization working to end domestic and sexual violence. Its website (womensfreedomcenter.net) says it is a feminist organization committed to offering support and advocacy to survivors of violence, as well as prevention and educational activities to help create a community in which violence is not tolerated.
