Joy Delivered Summer Camp

Camp Overview

The purpose of Joy Delivered’s “Girls Can Too!” summer camps is to empower girls ages 8-10 and 11-14 by teaching them trade skills such as building, fixing, creating, designing, painting, and gardening in order to create confidence and independence. Every week will feature a new skill that will be put into practice on projects that each girl will get to take home throughout the summer. Additionally, the girls will be combining their efforts on a group project that will benefit the community.

New for 2022 is the addition of our “mini” camp for girls ages 8-10. The purpose of this camp is to give girls a head start on learning the trades. The skills taught will prepare them for our 11-14yo camp. Most skills will use hand tools, but we will be on the lookout for girls who may be ready to try power tools. In addition to trade skills, we will also be focusing on leadership, teamwork, creativity, and friendship.

Location

Arts @ Large has been a Joy Delivered client and partner for over two years. Their mission — to activate Milwaukee’s communities to build environments that support arts-rich, lifelong learning — is the perfect backdrop to host our camp. The facilities at Arts @ Large include a full workshop and art studio, which we will be utilizing, along with nearby Paliafito Eco-Arts Park. Arts @ Large is located at 1100 S 5th St, Milwaukee, WI 53204.

Projects

Ages 11-14: Each week, the girls will make and take home these fun projects: Tiered Hanging Sign, Stool, Shadow Box with Hidden Jewerly Holder, Clock, and Raised Garden Planters. We will also be making birdhouses as our community give-back project. Week 3 will be a field trip to Milwaukee Blacksmith!

Ages 8-10: Each girl will make and take home these fun projects: Tiered Hanging Sign, Clock, and Birdhouse. July 14 will be a field trip to Milwaukee Blacksmith with the older girls!

Staff

Our summer camp is staffed by our amazing team of Jen, Joe, Barb, and Chris. We each have girls of various ages, so we can especially relate to our campers. In addition to our regular staff, we will also be joined by our summer staff of Samantha and Lucy; both helped with camp last year and are excited to join again this year.
