We are committed to creating the right environment for every girl, and your trust that we will do so is very important to us. We keep the participant to trainer ratio low (max. 6:1) to ensure that we have the time and resources to attend to each individual. We'd love to hear more about your daughter's strengths, needs, passions, and any other information you think we should know in order for us to make this an unforgettable summer!
