Girl Power’s Summer STEAM Workforce Training Camp 2021
Central Site – Booker T. Washington High School
by Gabriella Cabrera, Summer Camp Director
Wow! In just a blink of an eye, summer camp is coming to an end. What a successful summer camp we’ve had! Our girls have learned new skills and participated in many activities with our partners Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship (NFTE), Black Girl Magic, and the Institute of Contemporary Art Miami. They engaged in reflective writing, film screenings, identity-based interactive projects, and arts and crafts. Our girls were able to develop new abilities and become better versions of themselves. While COVID-19 continues to linger around, we were still able to pull through and have an awesome summer camp experience while staying safe.
Our summer camp experience included a range of field trips, including a visit to the Frost Science Museum to learn about the history of the Pterosaurs and touring the Everglades at Gator Park. Our girls were also physically active and focused on health and wellness with fun activities like SkyZone and Planet Air. It was a pleasure to watch our girls have fun with huge smiles on their faces, and this makes my work all worth it.
Our students are extremely excited about our End of the Summer Showcase. This will be their opportunity to showcase the work and activities that they've done during the summer, and they're looking forward to showcasing their summer projects and talents to their friends and families. As summer comes to an end, our participants are valuing the last few days spent with their counselors and new friends. This summer has been nothing short of greatness for our girls, and I cannot wait to see what the school year and next summer have in store for us!
