Details

Camp GOTR combines everything that makes the Girls on the Run program effective with all the fun of camp! During each session, 3rd – 5th grade 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, Camp GOTR provides a one-of-a-kind opportunity for girls to develop self-confidence, have fun with friends, and learn life skills they can use now and as they grow. Girls are invited to participate in Camp GOTR, regardless of whether or not they have participated in Girls on the Run before.

Themes: 

Girls Have Power: Girls will learn about the power they possess to recognize emotions in themselves and others, and how to express their feelings through fun and interactive activities. 

Girls Have Heart: Girls will have fun exploring friendships with activities designed to discover what makes a good friend and how to be a good friend to others.

Ma fille n’est pas une grande coureuse. Est-ce que ce programme lui conviendra? OU Ma fille est déjà une coureuse expérimentée. Est-ce que ce programme lui conviendra?

My girl isn't a big runner; is this program for her? OR My girl is already a skilled runner. Is this program for her?

Yes! We are much more than a running program, and 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 running at each practice. And know that when we say run, we mean run, walk, skip, roll or push, just as long as you are moving foward!

We can't afford the program registration fee, but our child would love to participate. How does the scholarship program work?

Don't let cost stop you from participating! We are committed to making Girls on the Run accessible to all who want to particpate! Thanks to generous donors and community supporters, program scholarships are available to any family who needs it, and we can also provide appropriate running shoes and attire if necessary. The online registration form will walk you through a few questions to find the fee that is right for your family based on a sliding scale.

Do girls need to attend all practice days in order to register?

Yes! Since most of our teams fill up quickly, if your girl will be unable to attend all the sessions, please save room for a girl who can, and consider joining us in a future season when she can enjoy the entire program.

Is there a way for me to sponsor a participant for a 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. Email us at info@gotrmidmd.org to sponsor a participant this season or learn more!
