Our goal is to create a camp environment where every child thrives in a 10:1 ratio. In order to achieve this, we ensure that our greatest asset is our enthusiastic, experienced staff. Our staff is the #1 reason, Girls Rock! Camp has been growing in numbers and philosophy. Each GRC location is overseen by a Guardian Angel who is a certified teacher and/or child & youth worker who shares her knowledge, skill, creativity and maturity with campers, staff & parents. We are SO lucky to have these professional women at the helm.
Along with our Guardian Angels, we have a trio of Angels at each site who help to deliver our GRC program with an exorbitant amount of energy and enthusiasm. These Angels are senior high school students or university students and they come with a plethora of gifts and talents (dance, cheer, sport, vocal, art, drama, culinary, and so on and so on and so on) waiting to be shared.
