Adventure Girls

Join us for four weeks of EPIC opportunities, engaging workshops, and ADVENTURE trips!

The BCYF Adventure Girls program is for Boston girls ages 9-12. Adventure Girls 2018 begins July 23 and runs Monday through Thursday, from 11 a.m. - 3 p.m. for four weeks.

Girls go outdoors and experience new adventures across Boston. They also learn and talk about relevant topics. Participants attend workshops Monday through Wednesday facilitated by YW Boston. On Thursdays, we go on adventure trips to build strength, confidence, and teamwork skills.
