Welcome to Florence Summer Camp 2017!

Girls University camps are centered around improving the well-being of girls. We believe in each girl’s individuality and intentionally focus on three key areas:
CREATIVITY,  EDUCATION,  PASSION

We work to create a safe, interactive and hands on environment that allows girls freedom to:
– Learn and master skills that nurture their passions, talents and potential.
– Bond with new friends and positive staff role models to create lasting memories.
– Know they belong so they feel welcome and free to express who they are.

WHAT DO WE OFFER? We offer a number of camps throughout the summer for girls! We have something for every girl, all summer long!

Locations: Florence SC and Hartsville SC (Coker College)
