Girls Leadership Institute
When you enroll in GLI you are preparing to change your life. This program is for you if you want expertise in relationships, communication and conflict, an understanding of the complex terms of femininity, and some amazing friendships. This program asks you to look at yourself, your strengths, your leadership style and your challenges and habits–the habits you love and the habits you want to change. GLI challenges you to be vulnerable and to take personal risks in order to build new approaches to making mistakes, receiving criticism and being assertive. You will be free to be your silly, crazy, authentic self and your amazing GLI friends will love you for just being you.
Life at GLI
We appreciate that you’ve chosen to take part in GLI. In return, we will give you choices. For example, you can choose your afternoon art project and you can choose what kind of fitness you are in the mood for or evening activity. Life here is definitely different from spending the summer at home; you get up early, go all day, leave your cell phone behind, share stories and opinions, and live with other girls. It is an intense, fun and transformative three weeks that makes you want to come back next year and do it all over again.
These workshops are designed to meet the needs and the interests of our oldest campers. This program also asks you to think deeply about what influences you, and the kind of relationships you really want for yourself. We will ask you to reflect on your choices and then push yourself to look at the emotions and thoughts behind those choices. Workshops include: Increasing Your Emotional Intelligence, Ending Blame, Three Reactions To Criticism, Overcoming Assumptions, Good Girl vs. Great Leader, Taking Charge of Your Internal Voice and more.
Guided by teaching artists, campers play, improvise and create unique works of art. Last summer’s projects included photography, Girls Make Movies, theater and improvisation, creative writing, sculpture and more.
Trips and Events
There are both challenging trips and just-for-fun days. We test our teamwork skills on the low-ropes course and face our own fears on the high ropes. There are river crossing and raft building challenges to try out the communication and collaboration skills we’ve been practicing in workshops.
For fun, we head to a lake to relax and enjoy magazines, music and a bag of Twizzlers. We may walk into town for ice cream or to enjoy a matinee at a local theater.
You’re creative, brilliant and ready to explore your experiences in exciting ways. We get that. So we’ve invited local artists, writers, and performers to guide you on a three-day weekend-long arts intensive. The arts intensive projects allow you to recognize, honor and communicate your authentic voice through creative media. The projects all culminate in a public celebration of artwork for your supportive camp community.
The Teen Leaders Program at the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore is a unique service-learning experience that will allow high school juniors and seniors to come to the Zoo for nine Saturdays over the school year to learn about careers in the non-profit sector. With a format that will combine group discussion, hands-on learning activities and group service projects, the program will introduce teens to how the Zoo functions as a model of non-profit management. Through this program, teens will be better educated on the careers in the non-profit sector and options for post-secondary education. They will learn how to write resumes and prepare for job interviews. Participants will also have the opportunity to compete for a paid summer work experience at the Zoo.
The Zoo will except up to 20 students for participation in the program. Prospective candidates will be required to complete an on-line application and participate in an interview with Zoo staff. Applications are due January 10, 2013.
Teen Leaders will come to the Zoo for nine 4-hour sessions from February 2 through April 6, 2013 from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm. The program will include a general understanding the non-profit world (mission, governance, funding, types of non-profits, etc.). During the sessions, teens will meet with speakers who are employees at the Zoo in a wide-range of departments (marketing, fundraising, finance, volunteer management, event planning, hospitality, education, animal collections management, security, etc.). (Please note that this is not a program solely about animal care, zookeeping, or veterinary science.) Each speaker will talk about the type of work that he or she does, how one would train for a career in his or her field, and why the job is important. Hands-on activities and service projects will allow the students to experience the work of the speakers. Participants will volunteer at the Bunny BonanZOO event in March 2013.

General Information and Instructions
The National Youth Science Camp (NYSC) is a residential science education program that honors and challenges two graduating high school science students from each state and others from selected countries around the world. Scientists from across the nation present lectures and hands-on science seminars and linger to interact informally with student delegates. Delegates are challenged to explore new areas in the biological and physical sciences, art, and music with resident staff members. Opportunities are provided for delegates to present seminars covering their own areas of interest and research. A visit to Washington D.C. permits delegates to visit some of the nation’s premier scientific, governmental, and cultural facilities. The NYSC experience includes overnight excursions into the Monongahela National Forest, featuring backpacking, rock-climbing, caving, mountain biking, and kayaking opportunities. Delegates
are required to participate in the camp program for its entirety, as the fast-paced activities and remote location make travel to and from the NYSC very difficult. More information is available online at www.nysc.org.
Location of the NYSC
The NYSC will be held at a facility located in the Monongahela National Forest near Bartow in the eastern mountains of West Virginia.
Dates of the NYSC
Delegates MUST be able to attend the entire NYSC program. Delegates arrive in Charleston,
West Virginia, on Wednesday, June 26, 2013, and depart on Saturday, July 20, 2013.
Cost The National Youth Science Camp is offered at NO COST to its participants so that selected delegates may attend regardless of their financial status. All educational and recreational
programming, as well as meals, lodging, and round-trip air passage on scheduled airlines are
provided free of charge to the delegates.
