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.

Arts Intensive

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.

General Information and Instructions

National Youth

Science Camp

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.



• U.S. applicants must be candidates for high school graduation between July 1, 2012 and June 30, 2013; International applicants must be 16 to 18 years of age during the program.

• Must demonstrate superior academic proficiency, including recognition in mathematics

and/or the sciences;

• Must demonstrate an application of leadership abilities and social maturity through

involvement in school and community activities;

• Must demonstrate skills and achievements outside the realm of science and outside the realm of academic pursuits; and

• Must demonstrate a curiosity and an eagerness to explore many and varied topics.

Application Criteria

A complete application consists of an original and one copy of the following:

1. Delegate Application Cover Sheet (please print or type),

2. A letter detailing your qualifications, how you would benefit from the NYSC experience, and your thoughts on the social impacts of science (must be typed),

3. A resume detailing your academic achievements and extra-curricular activities,

4. A recent academic transcript (including standardized test scores when possible), and

5. A letter of support from a teacher or research mentor emphasizing academic achievements, interest in sciences or mathematics, leadership potential, and well-rounded development.



1. Staple, in order, items 1 - 5, described above, together with one staple in the upper left corner. Do not otherwise bind your application nor place it in a folder.

2. Mail or ship your complete application directly to your selection coordinator so that it is

received no later than February 15, 2013. Contact information for your selection

coordinator is available online at www.nysc.org. Do NOT send your application material

directly to the National Youth Science Foundation.
