Your Best You

What does it mean to be a young female today? We will spend five mornings learning about ourselves as individuals and as members of a community. Each day's topic will give us a new way to consider how our traits (self, strength, mind, voice, connection) come together to make our best selves. We'll spend time outdoors and in creative spaces that help us reflect and focus. Activities will incorporate journals, colorful projects, mindfulness, yoga, nutrition, health and special guest speakers. Click here to download the sign-up form.
