This year, our campers aged 12-16 will be able to choose a track of workshops, or themed series. This is an application to propose a track for which you would be the Track Coordinator.
WHEN?Girls Rock! Camp Session 1: July 9th - July 15th, 2018Girls Rock! Camp Session 2: August 6th - August 12th, 2018
WHAT IS A WORKSHOP TRACK??At Girls Rock! Camp this year, some workshops will take place in tracks, a series of workshops that center around 1 theme. A track can be structured like a 4 part series of workshops which you yourself facilitate for the hour each day, OR like a series of 4 different workshops that center around a theme that are taught by different facilitators. This means you are responsible for scheduling a workshop every day, Monday-Thursday. We have a few ideas in mind of tracks that we'd like to happen at camp, but we also have room for your creative and brilliant ideas! Let us know your thoughts! All workshop blocks are 1 hour long.
