Barbados Camp

COVID-19 Update: Due to continued travel restrictions and concern for community spread, Brescia will not be offering this program as scheduled in July 2020. We are hopeful that we can offer next summer in July 2021.

Girls LEAD Barbados is a leadership camp designed to provide girls with the tools to become exceptional leaders in a fun, supportive and educational environment. Since 2010, Brescia has partnered with alumnae, students and local supporters to make the Girls LEAD Barbados camp a transformational experience for all who participate. 

Objectives

Girls LEAD is designed to create a positive, welcoming and inclusive environment where girls feel free to express themselves and question the world around them. We create a space where girls are encouraged to try new things, be creative and have fun.

Campers have the opportunity to create their own healthy snacks and lunches (based on Brescia’s well-known Foods and Nutrition program), allowing them to learn how to make educated food choices; while incorporating locally sourced foods and culture.

Programming

Programming is divided into three key areas:

  1. Celebrate Yourself
  2. Connect with Others
  3. Make Change
