Our initiatives and programs are organized around four intersecting and overlapping areas of wellness: Physical Health, Mental Health, Sexual Health, and Economics of Health. While the SuperCamp Philadelphia pilot was only two weeks, the program incorporated the essential elements of the SuperCamp curriculum.
GrassROOTS’ Super Camp program had a major expansion this year with the addition of SuperCamp Philadelphia site. With two themes and one mission, GrassROOTS’ SuperCamp implemented a culturally rich summer program directed at improving black girls’ leadership skills and guided by the core principles of Maat.
SuperCamp is a family-based camp for girls of African descent. Our camp is based on psychological theories that recognize the relationship between positive racial and social identity development for children’s well-being. As a supplement to children’s educational experience, we focus on areas of African and African American history not typically included in standard school curricula. SuperGirls explore and learn the histories of cultural icons and heroes that reflect their own biographies.
