PARTIAL & FULL SCHOLARSHIP AVAILABLE IN LIMITED QUANTITY!



The world needs empowered girls; who are leaders, confident and creative. Girls who can solve problems, create innovative solutions, and live fearlessly.

Possibility Camp, July 17-21 2017 for girls between ages of 8 - 13 will include lots of fun, an exploration of Ryerson’s Campus and Telus, and hands on STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and math) activities to help girls to develop their empathy and growth mindset, generate creative ideas, and build self-confidence in group settings.

In March, we tackled the theme of human centred design. Our campers learned a method for practical, creative resolution of problems by seeking first to understand what is meaningful to them and to those around them.

Building on this theme, our July camp will be focused on the Lean Startup method.

This process will teach our girls how to to persevere with an idea and to grow a business through a principled approach to new product development.

At the end of the week long camp, our campers will participate in a pitch presentation to practice their skills!

All are welcome, campers do not have had to have participated in the March Break camp to understand the Lean Startup approach.

Our team of facilitators includes inspiring women, who through their own experiences have developed a mindset of possibility, abundance, and social impact. We are passionate about helping your girls to be the best they can be.

We look forward to an exciting week starting July 17, 2017.
