Play Like A Girl Offers 2018 Spring Break Camp

Camp Based Program Includes Sports Activities, STEM, and Computer Coding

Nashville, Tenn. – Play Like a Girl (PLAG) is hosting a Spring Break Camp starting on Monday, April 2 through Friday April 6, 2018 at Oliver Middle School.Staffed by certified teachers, corporate professionals, athletes and volunteers, the week-long program will focus on a variety of activities specially designed to motivate girls both mentally and physically.

Each day campers will participate in sports, games and physical activities. They also will have the opportunity to benefit from STEM education and financial literacy delivered by Wells Fargo employees, as well as engage in a variety of arts and crafts and esteem-building exercises structured around PLAG’s 10 Girl-Powered Principles. The camp experience is intended to help participating girls find their spark for athletic, creative and developmental opportunities.

PLAG President/CEO Dr. Kimberly Clay set out to deliver a program that encompasses a wide variety of activities that will allow campers to learn and grow in a group setting. “It is important for girls to attend a Spring Break program like ours because this camp is a good connector for young people,” explained Dr. Clay. “Girls will have the opportunity to bond together through sports and education in a way that is unique to the Play Like a Girl camp experience.”

Because the PLAG community believes that ‘Giving is a team sport’, for every paid registration they have donated one camp registration to a student from an underserved community. This is a continued part of PLAG’s commitment to level the playing field for all girls in Nashville.

In addition to exploring their own growth as business owners, participants will experience weekly guest speakers who will enrich the conversation by teaching from their own entrepreneurship experiences.

The Academy Nashville was launched in 2016 as collaborative and action-driven way to help small businesses grow. “We know what it feels like to have a dream without a clear path, and a desire for a community of support to get your back,” explained Corner To Corner Cofounder Will Acuff. “Our goal is to give those in the community the tools and support needed to launch a business by learning from each other.”

Students who enroll will be side by side with other entrepreneurs who have the drive and commitment to turn their dream into a business reality. Participants will learn:
