Summer Camp
Circle Camp is a residential summer camp located on Spectacle Pond in Groton, New Hampshire. There, during a three-week session, the girls learn to connect with their peers and be a part of a community. The camp curriculum is structured to promote leadership, team-building, healthy relationships, communication and responsibility.

 
 

Core Program
The girls who participate in the Circle Program are enrolled as they enter the fifth grade. They include girls from the ages of nine through eleven who have been referred to our organization by teachers, school nurses, guidance counselors and social service agencies. The girls have demonstrated great potential, and the Circle Program offers them new opportunities and additional resources to develop their potential.

 
 

Mentor Program
After Circle Camp, each girl is paired with a woman volunteer from her community. The woman mentors the girl while serving as a positive role model in her life. The mentor meets with the girl at least twice a month throughout the school year to share fun activities. The girls develop their social skills through this on-going, supportive relationship. Every other month, all the girls and mentors get together for a group activity such as a field trip or community service project

 
 

Teen Program
After two years in the program, the girls are invited to join our Teen Program. Teens participate as part of a group of women mentors and girls who get together regularly throughout the year for field trips, community service projects, and group activities. Junior high school teens may continue to attend Teen Circle Camp for a three-week session. High school age teens are invited to be part of TAP, a new Teen Adventure Program, which offers them an opportunity to stretch their abilities and challenge their skills at a higher level. TAP participants will plan their own off-site camping or outdoor adventures while developing leadership skills; self-confidence and self-respect; trust; sense of responsibility for self, the community, and the environment; teamwork experience; decision-making skills; and camp-craft skills.



 

 

Our Mission: to provide socially and economically disadvantaged New Hampshire girls with the skills, courage and confidence they need to handle the challenges in their lives. We do this by providing the girls with a unique combination of adult and peer support delivered through residential summer camp and year-round mentoring.
