Confident Girls Summer Camp for Adolescent Girls


It is so important for young girls to be confident in themselves and develop a healthy body image, especially with the ever-changing societal pressures, social media images, and access to technology.  This “Confident Girls” group for rising 7th, 8th, and 9th graders will assist girls in enhancing their self-esteem and address topics including: expressing feelings, decision-making, conflict resolution (dealing with “mean girls”), body image, friendships, coping strategies, social media, and communication.  Girls at this age tend to struggle more with personal relationships than their male counterparts.  Girls who have high self-esteem feel secure and positive about themselves, confident in their ability to achieve goals, express their feelings, make positive choices, and care about others.  During this weeklong group, girls will learn about, engage in discussions, and practice these skills while interacting with their peers.   A yoga and meditation session will be included one afternoon as well as mindfulness practice. They will also have the opportunity to provide and receive feedback with their peers in a therapeutic setting while earning rewards for prosocial behavior.

Facilitated by Katie Overcash, LCSW and Lynne Beck, LPC who have over 20 combined years experience in the mental health field in various setting such as school, residential, and outpatient.  Both licensed therapists have years experience running these groups/camps and currently own outpatient mental health businesses, Overcash Therapy Services, PLLC and New Journey Counseling respectively.

Participation in the group includes 17.5 hours of direct contact with both licensed therapists and a 30 minute parental consultation at the conclusion of the week with either Katie or Lynne.

Space is limited for more individual attention, so register now!  Cost of the group is $350 with one partial scholarship available.  Contact Katie or Lynne if interested in the partial scholarship.

Confident Girls for Adolescents will be held Monday, July 20th through Friday, July 24th from 1pm to 4:30pm at 1100 South Mint Street, Suite 108, Charlotte, NC  28203.  Click here for Summer Camp Flyer.
