Girls Lead Campers on the front steps of Ursuline Hall at Brescia

Brescia University College’s Girls LEAD (Leadership, Education, and Development) camp has become a choice program for parents and guardians seeking an empowering, inspirational, and holistic experience for the girls in their lives. Since its launch in 2008, it has become an integral part of Brescia’s leadership initiatives, while providing outreach to our local community and fostering unique relationships with various valued partners. This camp program promotes and embodies Brescia’s mission to empower girls to “choose to lead.”

What makes Girls LEAD a program of excellence is three important components:
  1. The leadership curriculum rooted in the Social Change Model of Leadership.
  2. A daily “Lunch n’ Learn” nutrition program promoting food literacy and healthy body image.
  3. One hour of physical activity per day through swimming and indoor/outdoor games.

The Girls LEAD staff are committed to creating an inclusive, creative, and fun learning environment in which girls can celebrate their individuality, explore new ideas, and gain a stronger sense of self-awareness while amid a culture of friendship and community.
