Camp Helps Young Women Be Their Best

Camp Helps Young Women Be Their Best

THOMSON, GA (WFXG) - Cher's Sisters Only Club hosted the first session of Camp Be Your Best on June 30th in Thomson.

This is the 11th year the event has been put on.

The one-day camp lasts for 8 hours. It's a free event for girls and young women ages 11 to 18.

The girls have a day filled with age appropriate group chats, games, and lessons.

Everything that is taught is meant to help these young ladies succeed as they grow older.

They learn everything from personal hygiene to money management to how to develop healthy relationships socially and mentally.

Some campers come for the camp each year.

Steviana McCoy, a second year camper, said, "It made me more goal driver, and if it could do it for me, it could do it for a lot of other girls."

McCoy just graduated high school and is moving off to college in the fall.

This program helped her gain a mentor in the field she wants to work in.

There will be two more camp sessions available in Aiken and Augusta.

The Aiken camp will be held Saturday, July 14th, and the Augusta camp will be held Saturday, July 28th.

For the Aiken camp, you can contact Tonya Geter at (706) 495-2071, and for the Augusta camp, you can contact DeAngela Walker at (762) 333-4404.
