Girl Power is a place where girls can participate in recreation opportunities, learn about being healthy and boost their self-esteem in a safe and supportive environment. It has recently expanded from an annual conference to a year full events! The additional events will be held throughout the year and will continue to engage girls in being physically active, as well as, provide them with the tools necessary to make informed decisions regarding their overall health and well-being.
An action packed day that features a variety of energizing activities and interactive workshops aimed at helping young women find their passion and follow their dreams. It is a great opportunity for girls to try to new things in a girls-only environment.
The 10th annual Girl Power Conference is happening on Saturday May 11th, 2013 from 9:00am to 4:00pm at Confederation College.
The conference is for girls in grades 5-9 and the projected number of participants is over 150 girls! The event is geared to all abilities and skill levels. It is ‘the’ event of the year for young women and provides them with a safe space to get active, learn new skills, meet new friends and have fun doing so!

We offer a variety of activities and workshops for young women to try, and every year we expand to offer more exciting activities and unique opportunities for girls.
