Camp WIN is WIN (Women’s Intersport Network) for KC’s flagship youth event and is designed to EMPOWER girls by introducing them to over 16 different sports and fitness activities over four days in a safe and encouraging environment.
Over 200 middle school and high school girls serve as junior and team captains. Instructors and coaches come from local universities, colleges, high schools and other area organizations, including KU, K-State, and UMKC.
Each day features a Life Skills session with speakers on topics such as encouragement, preparation, self-esteem and healthy eating. Camp will include WIN’s award winning LIVE ACTIVE peer mentor program.
The goal of Camp WIN is to introduce girls to sports they have never tried in the hope that they can find something they like and stay active. Girls become more active and are more willing to try new things, especially sports and fitness activities after a session at our camp. We measure this change through post-camp evaluations done by campers, captains and parents.
Increasing a young girl’s physical activity level and her confidence has tremendous long-term effects. Studies have shown that girls that participate in sports are less likely to get pregnant or use drugs, and are more likely to graduate from high school and have higher levels of self-esteem. 96% of all camp participants’ surveyed considered themselves athletes at the end of Camp WIN, only 70% considered themselves athletes before attending camp. When girls believe they are athletes, they are more likely to try new things, have more confidence and become leaders.
