Empowerment Day

August 16 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 9:00 am, repeating until August 17, 2021

YWCA Lancaster is offering a FREE day camp for female-identifying children, ages 9-14, titled “Empowerment Day.” The day will focus on self-love and empowerment by building connections with others and exploring one’s own experiences. Throughout the day, children will participate in crafts, discussion, and activities related to topics such as gender roles, self-esteem, body-image, drug and alcohol prevention, relationships, and more. A free lunch will be provided by Blazin’ J’s including chicken sandwiches, salad, and chips. Unfortunately at this time, we are unable to accommodate requests. Children with dietary restrictions or allergies should pack if they are unable to have the lunch provided.

The activities for the day will include:
• Activity and discussion on identity and challenging gender roles with the YWCA Lancaster’s Center for Race and Gender Equity
• Creating art with local artist and muralist, Keisha Finnie, on the topics of self-love and self-expression
• Creating a DIY journal on healthy body-image
• Conversations and activities about topics such as coping skills, drug and alcohol prevention, healthy relationships
• Opportunities to win cool prizes and more!
