Girl nature camp set for June 17-22

Special to the Daily

EAGLE — What kind of woman do you want your daughter to become? Strong, resilient, courageous, confident and self-aware — it’s what we all want for our girls.

That’s the purpose of the Chrysalis Circle from Women’s Empowerment Workshop — to give girls the tools to reach their full potential as women.

This six-day nature adventure empowerment camp for girls in middle and high school is based in Eagle and takes place June 17-22. The camp includes rafting, rock climbing, horseback riding, hiking, yoga, communication and listening skills, stress relief and self-awareness skills. It’s a whole lot of fun while giving girls lifelong tools.

Chrysalis Circle gives girls an opportunity to explore their transition into womanhood. The outdoor activities guide young women on a journey to find their authentic voice, gain confidence and integrate mind, body and spirit by connecting to nature.

Led by certified counselors, coaches and wilderness guides, the program integrates activities in nature, creative arts, leadership and communication skills and time for introspection. The girls meet from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. with one overnight on June 21.

“Chrysalis helped me be more aware of who I am and what I want to be as a person,” said Zoe Thrasher, who participated for two years during high school and now attends Wellesley College.

Another past participant said, “Chrysalis has made me more in touch with myself and everyone around me.”

Chrysalis Circle is offered by Women’s Empowerment Workshop, which was founded five years ago by Susie Kincade, a coach, teacher, mentor, and transformational wilderness guide.

Kincade raised two daughters and two stepdaughters and is committed to helping girls and women navigate their various transitions in life. Women’s Empowerment Workshop empowers women and girls to nourish mind, body and spirit by connecting to the natural world in enriching and transformational ways. The guided nature adventure retreats for girls and women rejuvenate, revitalize and renew personal strength, awareness and confidence.

Cost of Chrysalis Circle is $450 before June 7, and $500 after. Limited scholarships are available and Kincade is offering a $50 “Bring a Friend” discount. The group size is limited to ensure individual attention. For information and registration, contact Susie Kincade 970-328-5472 or visit
