Our Midwest Summer Camp is perfect for building your girl’s confidence

At Camp Weloki, we encourage girls to bond with their peers through empathy and understanding, which helps build the foundation for strong friendships. Positive social interactions at summer camps have been shown to help develop a better sense of belonging and acceptance, which are both great for building your girl’s confidence. Our summer camps and overnight retreats bring together girls from different backgrounds and allow for social interaction in a supportive environment.

The staff at Camp Weloki are committed to helping girls and teens develop a positive self image. Our camp counselors and leaders are uniquely qualified to offer girls invaluable life skills they can use to manage the many challenges of life in healthy ways. It is essential to create an emotionally supportive and relaxed environment where girls can be heard. With this emotional support, we promote a safe space for girls to express themselves genuinely, helping them develop a positive self image.

We support this development through group discussions, sharing circles, and giving plenty of opportunities for girls to express their thoughts and feelings. Camp Weloki also promotes teamwork through group activities and shared experiences so girls can learn valuable social skills such as communication, cooperation, and conflict resolution. Once a girl is given these tools to manage life’s challenges, she will always be able to rely on them as she grows older.

Camps also allow girls and teens to safely step outside of their comfort zone, which is shown to strengthen and develop independence. Our summer camp offers a wide range of activities, and our counselors continually motivate girls to try new activities they have never done. As girls continue to grow up, life will bring them new challenges. Encouraging campers to take on new activities and obstacles provides an opportunity for the girls to gain a sense of personal strength and develop key personal skills like resilience and perseverance. Navigating these challenges will give girls new confidence in their ability to overcome obstacles, which only enhances their self esteem.

Today, girls are constantly surrounded by technology and social media, which affects their lives in many ways. Overusing technology and social media often leads to weakened interpersonal communication skills, lower academic grades, feelings of insecurity, and lowered self esteem. Overnight retreats and summer camps give adolescent girls and teens a perfect opportunity to disconnect from technology and experience what nature has to offer. When girls step away from digital distractions, they engage their peers in meaningful interaction, connect with their surroundings, and focus on personal growth. At Camp Weloki, we love taking a break from technology to enjoy nature. 

Overall, summer camps and overnight retreats are great experiences to help a girl’s journey of self discovery and independence. Here at Camp Weloki, girls strengthen their confidence, boost their self image, are positively encouraged to face challenges, and accomplish tasks independently in a safe and healthy environment. Our camp counselors help campers discover their interests, strengths, and talents while also engaging in new activities and having fun along the way. Camp Weloki is the perfect start to help your girls build life skills and competence, ultimately leading to a sense of self achievement and positive self worth.
