Summit Sisters

January – June, 2020 

Summit Sisters

Summit Sisters is a five-month leadership, fitness and empowerment program for high school girls in Lee and Collier County. Girls will meet twice weekly. The first meeting of the week alternates between leadership training and integrated fitness. The Thursday meeting is a workout. 

The program will begin the week of January 13, 2020 and culminate with a 7-day backpacking expedition to Southwest Montana. Girls can apply for either our Naples program or our Ft. Myers program. The two groups will travel to Montana together as one “Super Group”. Please select which program you are applying for on the application. 

The multi-day expedition will focus on teaching girls fundamental outdoor skills such as cooking, camping and navigation while developing leadership skills as an individual and as a member of an expeditionary group. Participants will be challenged physically and mentally while hiking most days with heavy packs in a changing alpine environment. While navigating through mountain terrain, girls will engage in lessons about Leave No Trace® camping principles and learn how to work as a team to accomplish common expedition goals.
