Girls' Outdoor Leadership

Session

Girls need the Outdoors and the Outdoors needs Girls.

Rooted in leadership and focused on the natural environment, our Girls Outdoor Leadership program is both an exploration of the Lowcountry and an opportunity for self empowerment.

Designed for young women* ages 11 to 15, this after school program is a unique experience that brings girls from around the Lowcountry that share a common love for the outdoors and self improvement.

Led by Kyndra Luce, an experienced outdoor leader, camp director, and literal embodiment of "pretty and strong," she brings decades of experience to the program.  Kyndra teaches leadership through action, kindness, and an attitude of openness.

This course is meant to be a holistic program; much like joining a sports team, participants are expected to attend the scheduled events in order to maximize their growth and experience.
