Scholarships available to girls in 3rd to 8th grade interested in summer sports camps.
There are a number of Girls Sports Camps available this summer which build confidence and relationship skills. The local nonprofit Girls With GRIT has a 2023 summer sports camp program which includes soccer, track, volleyball and basketball. The sports camps are available to girls entering 3rd to 8th grade in the 2023/24 school year. Discounts are offered when you register 2 or more girls, and scholarship opportunities are available for low income families.
Each sport has a 2 or 3 day weekend clinic that is on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, or just Saturday and Sunday. Following the clinic there are at least two additional sessions scheduled to help the girls work on their skills in even smaller groups. The available clinics are as follows:
