What is the Girls Media Summer Camp?

The Girls Media Summer Camp is a free media-making and mentorship program for girls aged 9-18. Older girls (13-18) mentor younger girls (9-13) in order to create a supportive space through activities, trips, discussions, and digital media making. Snacks are provided at each session. This program is funded by the Canadian Women’s Foundation.

The purpose of this camp is to equip girls with the critical thinking and technical skills to produce their own media, such as podcasts, websites and short films. Our goal is for participants to gain a sense of pride, increase their self-esteem and develop a meaningful connection to other girls in their community.

Online registration can be found in the description above; click 'REGISTER NOW'. 

Registration forms must be fully completed, up to date, and returned to staff in order to attend any trips or do any special activities. If any information changes, staff must be notified as soon as possible.

The camp runs every Tuesday and Thursday 12pm-4pm in the ANC Office (109 Lotherton Pathway) from July 11 – August 18 unless otherwise stated on the calendar. Every other Wednesday (July 19, August 2, August 16) will be a trip. Each camp participant is expected to come on time. If you will be absent on any day, staff must be notified a day in advance.
