What's New with Ladies First

GWP Girls Empowerment Camp 2016

It’s time for SUMMER CAMP!! Ladies First is designing a FREE summer camp in partnership with Tacoma Urban League’s Girls With Purpose (GWP) mentoring program. When you get involved with Girls With Purpose, you join a high-spirited, intergenerational, and multicultural community of women ages 11 and up who are dedicated to building a positive future for themselves and the world.

Tacoma Urban League’s GWP Girls Empowerment Day Camp is offered during two weeks (August 8-12 and August 22-26) and is designed for young women, ages 11-14. In an effort to provide this camp experience to as many girls as possible, we are asking campers to choose one of the two weeks.
