About this Program

Embark on a nature-inspired journey with "Girls Who Lead: Curious Critters - Nature Exploration," a summer experience designed exclusively for young girls eager to learn about the world around them. In this experience, participants will not only explore the flora and fauna around them but also develop leadership skills through hands-on activities, scientific discovery, and outdoor adventures. Program Highlights: 1. Curious Critters Studies: Embark on a fascinating exploration of curious critters, from insects and butterflies to small mammals and feathered friends. Through observation participants will gain a deeper understanding of the role these critters play in their ecosystems. 2. Nature Journaling: Foster creativity and self-expression through nature journaling. Participants will document their observations, sketches, and reflections, creating a personal record of their nature exploration journey. 3. Leadership Development: Cultivate leadership skills through team-building exercises, collaborative projects, and challenges. Participants will develop confidence, communication, and decision-making skills in a supportive and empowering environment. 4. Conservation Awareness: Gain insight into the importance of conservation and environmental stewardship. Through discussions and activities, participants will explore ways to contribute to the well-being of the planet and its diverse ecosystems. 5. Showcase: The experience will conclude with a showcase, where participants will share their knowledge to friends, family, and fellow nature explorers. Celebrate the achievements and innovation of each explorer.
