Bold Summer: Leadership Camp for High School Girls

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!

While no outdoor adventure is totally risk-free, we work hard to keep your kids safe. Every activity starts with a discussion about the risks involved -- what they are, how to prevent them, how to respond if something goes wrong -- so kids learn how to approach challenges with intelligence and skill.
