“This is a place where girls learn extremely important life skills including, how to develop friendship skills, value themselves, and be happy to be who they are.”

Summer Parent

A Summer Camp Like No Other

Our internationally-recognized residential summer program, founded in 2001 by girl experts and social entrepreneurs Rachel Simmons and Simone Marean, is a summer camp experience for girls like no other.

Nestled on the beautiful Cate School campus in Carpinteria, CA, 11 miles from Santa Barbara our Summer Program combines the best of traditional summer camp – amazing friendships, fun games and evening activities, a powerhouse team of extraordinary staff – with something no other camp offers: fun, life-changing workshops that equip girls with the skills to exercise the power of their voice.
