#GFACfortheGIRLS #CampDiva

Activities in five areas:

  • Life Skills
  • Leadership
  • Health and Wellness
  • Social Change
  • Cultural Enrichment

Our Summer Academy is a rites of passage camp for girls 11-15 years old (girls entering grades 6-10 in the fall). It is the only program in the Richmond Metropolitan area geared toward the growth and development of African-American teen girls.

This fun, life-changing experience is designed to help teen and pre-teen girls gain personal power and self-confidence, and balance the mind, body, and spirit, while creating and developing deep and lasting friendships and memories. Activities during the camp include field trips, including a trip to a day spa and an overnight retreat, workshops focusing on issues teen and pre-teen girls face, journaling, team-building, cultural enrichment, and various hands-on activities.

Girls will also participate in traditional camp activities such as swimming, art/crafts, sports, and dance. In addition, each week has its own theme. The staff retention rate for Camp Diva Summer Academy is nearly 100%, so as many of our campers return year to year, they are greeted and cared for by people they know who are wholeheartedly dedicated to helping them grow into fine young women and productive citizens.


  • Top Focus Areas: Cultural Enrichment/Life Skills, Fitness/Nutrition, STEM, Community Service & Fashion with Special Guest Speakers and Field Trips scheduled each week
  • Field Trips: College tours, Slave Walk, Agriculture and Gardening, S.T.E.M. Labs and a Spa Day

  • Lunch Time: $6 per day or Bring a bag lunch

  • Activities Include: Junior Achievement, Virginia League for Planned Parenthood, Child Shield, Richmond Peace Education Center, Low Ropes Challenge Course, Team Building and Critical Thinking Skills, Swimming, Body Movement, and Yoga.
