Black Girls Rock! Queens’ Camp for Teen Girls

Black Girls Rock! presents its Queens’ Camp for teen girls ages 12-17. The overnight camp is a two-week leadership program to help girls from all social and economic backgrounds develop into strong leaders. The camp will be held in Rhinebeck, NY from July 16-30, 2011.

Black Girls Rock! is an organization founded by former model turned-DJ, Beverly Bond, to mentor girls and elevate their self-esteem. Bond believes the Queens’ Camp will encourage a global sisterhood, since the camp is open to girls from across the globe. She explains her goal for the camp, “Our goal is to foster the participants’ intentional pursuit of excellence and integrity. . .so they will be sound leaders.” Some of the focused areas of leadership include academics, creative and performing arts, public service and civic engagement. Camp activities will include sports, hiking, arts & crafts and volunteer programs. In addition, there will be workshops on culinary culture, DJ 101 and spoken word.

All girls accepted to the camp will have a full scholarship to attend. If you have what it takes to “rock” this camp, download an application on the Black Girls Rock! website. The application must be emailed or sent by mail no later than June 3, 2011.

Good Luck!
