Hardy G*rls is excited to restart our in-person programming with a FREE Waterville-area summer camp for girls and gender-expansive youth.
Camp Brilliance is focused on art, activism, coalition building, and
celebrating youth brilliance.
Over the course of the week, camp attendees will develop a social action project, learn about ways to make a positive change in their community, and get messy making art. Camp Brilliance will be led by HGHW staff, members of our G*rls Advisory Board, and trained adult volunteers.
Camp Brilliance is open to girls and gender-expansive youth entering grades 5-10 in Central Maine*, and it is free of charge to all attendees.
Camp Brilliance will be held Monday August 16 through Friday August 20, from 9 am to 3 pm daily. It will be located in Waterville.
* There are no geographic requirements for camp attendees, but campers must be dropped off and picked up from camp each day in Waterville. HGHW does not provide transportation to/from camp.
Online Registration for Camp Brilliance is available below and will be open until August 8 or until we have 30 confirmed attendees, whichever comes first. Registration is FREE.
We’re able to hold Camp Brilliance in person because of our use of pooled Covid-19 testing, supported by the Maine Department of Education. During registration, guardians will have the option to opt into pooled testing, which will be conducted the first day of camp. A positive pooled test will result in individual BinaxNOW antigen tests for campers that have been opted into testing, provided free of charge at camp. You can learn more about the pooled testing program HERE.
All camp attendees will be required to wear masks while doing indoor activities. Masks will not be required for outdoor activities, but are always respected.

Our website and digital forms are secure and responses are only viewable to HGHW staff.
Hardy G*rls Healthy Wom*n takes girls and gender expansive youth seriously and puts the power in their hands to challenge a society that ignores their brilliance.
We dare adult allies to join us.
