Camp CEO

Camp CEO is an invitation-only Girl Scout leadership program that sends 70 high-school girls from underserved communities to the Stanislaus National Forest with some of the most successful executive women from the Bay Area as mentors and role-models.

Rather than have girls and mentors formally assigned to each other for the entire duration of the camp, girls and mentors will have the opportunity to interact with each other during a series of activities. This gives girls and mentors the chance to meet and engage with several people from different backgrounds.  Over the course of 3 days, these campers and mentors tackle the ropes course, organic gardening, hiking, and some hands-on lessons about growth mindset and goal setting. Positive results come as no surprise to those who are familiar with the benefits of outdoor learning. Benefits like…
