Rosie’s Girls Summer Program Helps Build Strong, Confident Girls

Rosie’s Girls Summer Program is an exciting day camp that helps girls – ages 11-13 – develop and strengthen their capacities and confidence while exposing them to a range of educational and career opportunities they may never have considered. Rosie’s Girls takes its name from Rosie the Riveter, the fictional World War II icon who represented the women who went to work in shipyards and factories to fill shortages while men fought overseas.

Rosie’s Girls Summer Program will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., June 21 to July 9 at Lorain County Community College.  It’s for girls ages 11-13 who will be entering the 6th-8th grades in fall of 2010. Cost of the three-week camp is $75 per girl, but it will be refunded at the end of the camp upon successful completion of the program. Before and aftercare is available.

“Rosie’s Girls campers have a chance to get their hands dirty, express themselves creatively and explore what the world has to offer them — and what they have to offer the world,” said Kelly Zelesnik, dean of LCCC’s Engineering Technologies division. “Combining hands-on instruction in the skilled trades with lots of arts activities and games, the program supports girls in finding their own strength, power and confidence in a fun, positive atmosphere.”

The program includes:

  • Building and Exploration
    Learn and apply basic carpentry skills including measuring, cutting, hammering and tool safety.  Explore other nontraditional career fields for women such as welding, firefighting, and automotive technology.
        
  • Arts and Creative Expression
    Express yourself through arts activities that include mask making, jewelry making, mosaics, dance
    and yoga.
        
  • Physical Challenges and Games
    Participate in a ropes course, self-defense, swimming, and rock wall climbing
        
  • A Girl’s World
    Engage in thought-provoking activities that examine the messages we receive about the role of women and girls in our society and explore who you are and what you can be.
        

Rosie’s Girls is made possible by generous support from individuals, corporations and foundations.  For a complete listing, visit www.hardhattedwomen.org
