YMCA CAMP BURGESS & HAYWARD

You Grow Girl

Mission Statement

The You Grow Girl Program empowers young women to become active stewards of themselves, their communities, and the environment by developing skills in leadership, communication, collaboration, and self confidence in the context of responsible and sustainable agriculture.

About YGG

The You Grow Girl Program includes leadership and skill building opportunities in addition to a new garden at Camp Hayward. Located outside the Hayward office, the raised bed garden will provide veggies for the Camp Hayward salad bar as well as programming opportunities for cabins and interest group activities throughout the summer. With limited spots, this program has a brief application process.
