Summer in Memphis may mean slowing down, but for Girls Inc. girls, it definitely DOESN'T mean stopping.
Just like the veggies being harvested by our farmers at the GIrls Inc. Youth farm in Frayser, girls in our summer programs are always growing--body, mind and spirit.
At our South Park and LDT Centers, our BOLD camp sessions are under way. During the just-ended STRONG and SMART sessions, girls built solar cars, took part in fitness challenges and heard from the Gang Unit from the Memphis Police Department--among many other fun and meaningful activities.
Farmers at the Youth Farm have been busy working the fields, harvesting and selling their crops (like the ones in the photo below) at the Memphis Farmers Market. They also hosted a "Memphis United - Know Your Rights" workshop presented by the Mid-South Peace and Justice Center.
And on July 1, all our summer program participants gathered for Unity Day for mini-Olympics, field sports, arts and crafts, an inflatable obstacle course--your basic fun, food and fellowship.
So you can see - summer's no time for slouching for a Girls Inc. girl. With that out of the way, it's time for a friendly reminder - REGISTRATION is now OPEN for fall programming at our centers! Register today at LDT Center (686 N. Seventh St.) or South Park Center (1568 Robin Hood Ln)!
Get it out of the way - so you can relax for the rest of the summer!
