  • New friendships, fun and confidence!

My child isn't a big runner; is this program for her? OR My girl is already a skilled runner. Is this program for her?

Yes! We are much more than a running program, and every participant can benefit from the experience of building confidence through accomplishment while participating in our rich, curriculum-based, age-appropriate, interactive lessons. Expect lots of games, talking, laughing and processing in addition to running at each practice. And know that when we say run, we mean run, walk, skip, roll or push, just as long as you are moving foward!

What does the camp registration fee include?

Your camp program registration fee includes all lesson materials, including Camp GOTR curriculum and journals, a Camp GOTR t-shirt, a re-useable water bottle and a healthy snack each day.

We can't afford the camp registration fee, but our child would love to participate. How does the scholarship program work?

Don't let cost stop you from participating! We are committed to making Girls on the Run programming accessible to all who want to particpate! Thanks to generous donors and community supporters, program scholarships are available to any family who needs it. The online registration form will walk you through a few questions to find the fee that is right for your family based on a sliding scale.

Do girls need to attend every day of camp in order to participate?

Yes! Since space is limited, if your girl will be unable to attend all days of her camp week, please save room for a girl who can, and consider joining us in a future season when she can enjoy the entire camp experience.

Is there a way for me to sponsor a participant for camp?

Yes! As a mission-driven 501(c)3, Girls on the Run relies on generous donors in order to provide more than $30,000 in program scholarships for families in need. Click here to sponsor a participant for camp.
