Edmond Family Counseling had a blast with GirlStrong Day Camps

Edmond Family Counseling
School has begun, but at EFC we’re still celebrating the wonderful times summer brought us. Our days were filled with space themed GirlStrong Day Camps. Edmond Family Counseling hosted five sessions of the one-week day camp for incoming third through sixth grade girls, and every group was out of this world!
Each group discussed a variety of topics including body image, self-esteem, and decision-making. They learned new ways to deal with negative thoughts, and techniques to calm themselves down when they start to become overwhelmed. The girls did crafts that highlighted their personal strengths and best qualities. They played games that taught problem-solving skills and encouraged teamwork. Above all, GirlStrong was a fun way to introduce new life skills to the girls attending.
All of the counselors that led GirlStrong would like to say thank you to the 66 girls who joined us this year. Exploring the galaxy would be lonely without friends, which is why we are so glad that you joined us on our adventures this summer.
Have an amazing school year, and we hope to see you again soon!
