Camps at Power4Teens are based around having fun, getting outside, getting fit, being creative, trying new things while becoming empowered and gaining the tools to develop self understanding and self worth. They are set in a fun, friendly intimate environment where we promote authenticity, individuality and acceptance. We teach kids how to integrate with the world around them in a confident and positive manner. They will be exposed to many different activities and life lessons, but most of all they will laugh and be exhausted by the end of the day with beaming smiles - we are often told this is the best camp EVER from our campers. All our camps include:
Some of our talks include:
The Tween day camp & LIT camps run separately out of the same location (we split by ages, so don't worry, reluctant teens will realize this camp is cool). The Tween & LIT programs are based around similar concepts but vary based on the age of the audience with more emphasis on leadership and creating and presenting ideas for LIT groups. Tweens are generally 8-12 (grouped age 8-10 and 10-12). Teens generally are 13-16 (we move kids into appropriate groups depending on the sign ups of the week.
The week ends on Friday with a pizza party and fun confidence walks (where we incorporate all the lessons of camp. We create a relaxed carefree environment where we can randomly break into dance or run around a field screaming wildly their favourite songs. Basically, we have it all, and we know it, because this is what they asked for and we deliver, and when the requests change, so do we.
Overnight Camp Dates
WEEK 3 :July 13 - July 17, 2020 : Teen Girls Overnight Leadership/Empowerment Camp
WEEK 5 July 27- July 31, 2020 : Tween Girls Overnight Outdoor Active Empowerment Camp
This is NOT your normal fun overnight camp - it is so much more. The Power4Teens overnight experience combines the great outdoors, swimming, SUP'ing, Wakeboarding, campfire songs with a more intimate environment where positivity, empowerment and self understanding is developed.
The focus is on summer activities, enjoyment and freedom where girls also learn real life skills, leadership, group dynamics & compassion for themselves and others. It develops everything the school system forgets and that the culture of today misses - including mindfulness, real connection, acceptance and getting away from technology and social media. We relish in the freedom of Summer while learning what really matters in life and it's fun. Parents (and kids) often say it's been life changing.
We run it like a family, come alone, come with a friend, it doesn't matter because we all become one. Travelling in our small buses with music pumping and getting out and exploring the area we feel more free and independent but still very well cared for. So much more exciting than being stuck on a camp with a thousand people you won't ever know! We refuse to get bigger no matter what the demand for our camps are! We remain authentic and true to our goals.
Our property is 2 beautiful but simple cottages at the end of Long Lake on a sandy beach with access to quiet waters. There is a swim dock and safe waters for paddle boarding and exploring. We have workshops, games and activities held outside on the grass or inside in the living area.
Great healthy food is prepared and cooked in the cottage by our amazing chef Jen (kids sometimes help) . There are plenty of rooms (capacity of cottages is 36.. we are a max group of 24) with the possibility of sleeping in single, double, triple or quad rooms. Girls can choose rooming options or we help them decide when we get there. Because we take 2 12 seater vans up we have trips into Bala for ski shows, ice cream, hiking and rollerskating.
The P4T difference is due to the size of the camp, the quality of the instructors and the philosophy behind the camp. We take a maximum of 19 girls and have 5 leaders.
