For execs

Over the course of three days, this program will bring leading women corporate executives and entrepreneurs together with teen Girl Scouts to forge relationships and develop leadership skills.

One-on-one adult mentoring is key to the success of this program. Adult role models are paired with a teen Girl Scout during the length of their stay. They will also have many opportunities to interact with the larger group, and can look forward to some adults-only networking time.

For more information or to sign up, contact Jen Nation, jnation@sdgirlscouts.org or (619) 610-0726.

Session example:  Dreaming Your Future

In an informal setting, adult campers share their most profound career experiences and their "Aha!" life lessons with girls.

For teens

If you're accepted to Camp Exec, you’ll join 16 like-minded young women from across San Diego to learn, listen and share your dreams with some of San Diego’s most accomplished women professionals. Throughout the weekend, these top-level women will hold unique, collaborative sessions, then gather with you around the campfire to talk about how they got where they are now. Plus, they’ll hear your hopes for the future and help you map your pathway there.

On Friday, you’ll meet your match: a female professional who shares your interests. Together, you’ll grow leadership and career skills in a camp setting. In addition to one-on-one time with your mentor, you’ll practice social and business etiquette, projecting a positive image, developing a personal brand, and networking, as taught by the pros. Highlights include dressing up for a formal dinner, as well as introducing your mentor to our high ropes course and all your favorite camp activities!
