Why Girls First!? Because being a girl is AWESOME. Girls First! is a summer camp like no other. Created for girls entering grades 7-10, we combine three great things close to Washington, DC:

  • A fun academic learning environment where girls gain new skills in class via hands-on activities and projects. Without the pressure of grades or homework, girls really delve into exciting topics and have plenty of time to practice new skills.
  • A daily girl-centered program that encourages girls to be who they are, learn from those around them, and become more confident as they learn about themselves.
  • A traditional sleep-away camp with many activity choices like swimming, arts and crafts, self-defense, zip line adventure, and field trips.
