High Rocks for Girls
High Rocks began in 1996 as a residential summer camp on a mountainside to help girls prepare for High School with a positive outlook about themselves and their abilities. . Over 20 years later, we work not only with girls at summer camp, but throughout the year with students and volunteers of all ages at our 200 acres on the mountain and in town with partner organizations with the aim of making our communities stronger, richer more vibrant places to work and live for all of us. AmeriCorps members at High Rocks will recruit students and volunteers, and help with our year-round educational programming for local youth. Our programming is free and we accept girls from all walks of life and all the different tables in the cafeteria.
