Adventure Girls

BCYF Adventure Girls registration is full. We have a waitlist available.

Join us for four weeks of EPIC opportunities, engaging workshops, and a summer of Adventure!

The BCYF Adventure Girls program is for Boston girls ages 9 - 12. Adventure Girls 2020 begins July 20 and runs Monday through Friday for four weeks. It will take place virtually.

The program will operate differently this summer than it has in past summers. But, participants will still have the opportunity to take part in a series of workshops and online activities. These events will tie into outdoor adventures while promoting teamwork and building self-esteem and leadership skills.
