Camp GOTR by Girls on the Run provides an intensive, one-of-a-kind opportunity for girls entering or exiting 3rd – 5th grades to develop self-confidence, learn life skills, and have fun.  Girls will enjoy building friendships in a fun and inclusive setting that includes interactive games, being physically active, and expressing creativity through arts and crafts and storytelling. Led by caring and qualified Girls on the Run coaches, this camp combines the best of the Girls on the Run program with all the fun of camp for two magical weeks.

How Does Camp GOTR compare to regular Girls on the Run?

Camp GOTR is an intensive experience - all the fun and impact of a 10-week, 20-lesson program, squished into one week during the summer! Girls who have participated in GOTR before and girls who are brand new to Girls on the Run will enjoy the Camp GOTR activities, games and themes. Up to 45 girls can participate in one Camp GOTR location, though they’ll split into small groups of 10-15 for many activities.

Who can participate in Camp GOTR?

Camp GOTR is for girls entering or exiting 3rd-5th grades. We serve kids of all abilities and warmmly welcome kid who identify as non-binary or gender expansive.

My child isn't a big runner. Is this program for them? OR My child is already a skilled runner. Is this program for them?

Yes! We are much more than a running program. Every participant can benefit from the experience of building confidence through accomplishment while participating in our rich, curriculum-based, age-appropriate, interactive lessons. Expect lots of games, talking, laughing, and processing in addition to physcial activity and running games. And know that when we say run, we mean run, walk, skip, roll, or push — just as long as you are moving foward!

Is there a way for me to sponsor a participant for a GOTR season?

Yes! As a mission-driven 501(c)3, Girls on the Run relies on generous donors in order to provide more than $30,000 in program scholarships for families in need. Click here to donate to our scholarship fund.
