The mission of Girls Inc. of Greater Houston is to inspire all girls to be strong, smart, and bold.
Girls Inc. identifies STRONG to healthy living. Health and Wellness programs teach girls to be STRONG enough to take care of and understand their bodies. Empowerment & Anti-Bullying programs strengthen girls to fight against societal pressures.
Girls Inc. program activities and experiences provide the knowledge, skills and encouragement to develop and sustain a healthy lifestyle leading to:
- an improved body image
- increased level of physical activity
- improved nutritional habits and healthy diets
- awareness of the dangers of unhealthy choices
During Camp Smart, the summer day camp for ages 7-12, girls learned about and put healthy living in to practice. Learning the importance of self-care and good nutrition, girls took part in yoga, krav maga, golf, nature walks, soccer drills (with the Houston Dash), and made their own healthy snacks.
You can help us inspire girls to be strong by becoming a partner of Girls Inc. of Greater Houston today. For this holiday season consider the Gift of Camp for the Holidays. We offer camp scholarships to girls who want to attend our spring break and summer day camps but have limited resources. For many girls, this scholarship fund is the only way for them to attend camp. While any amount is welcomed and will help send girls to camp, a gift of $500 will fund a whole camp experience for one girl.
