OUR CLUB’S MISSION
The purpose of the Lake Wales Breakfast Rotary Club
is to be a service club that focuses
on caring for the youth of our community while
participating in Rotary’s global efforts.
Lake Wales Breakfast Rotary's Girls' Camp
Girls’ Camp and Boys’ Camp are the Lake Wales Breakfast Rotary Club's main community service projects. The Girls’ Camp for fourth and fifth graders has been held annually since 2011.
“Girls Just Want to Have Fun!” by Cindi Lauper could surely be the theme for our annual Girls’ Camp. It’ a free weekend for 64 girls jammed pack with activities and experiences at Lake Aurora Christian Camp. The girls are chosen by their schools because they are team players, cooperative, respectful, and all-around good citizens. We want to include some lifelong lessons at our Girls’ Camp such as:
- respect for their environment,
- encourage exercise and creativity,
- increase confidence and self-esteem,
- promote social skills and making new friends,
- encourage independence and love of adventure, and
- reconnect with nature, while unplugging from technology and tv.
The counselors are highly motivated, successful, mature young ladies who dedicate their time and energy to provide a memory-filled weekend for the campers. Activities include hay rides, drumming, art, campfires with s’mores and singing, team-building, archery, outside games, ax throwing, paddle boats, Zipline, glamour night and dancing.
Each team also works on a short skit that is performed in front of all the campers on the last day. Our weekend revolves around the theme of “I AM IMPORTANT, BEAUTIFUL, UNIQUE, SMART, AND FUN!” The counselors and Rotarians reinforce these characteristics throughout their weekend with the girls.
Girls’ Camp is an amazing “give back” to our community through fundraising efforts, corporate sponsorships, and grants. The smiles on everyone’s faces throughout our weekend makes this camp so worthwhile!
