Spring Break Programs
Five unforgettable days of sisterhood and self
"We all trusted each other. I could say anything without being judged."
"I signed up for Fire & Flower just as something to do but it ended up helping me through some emotions that I didn't know I needed help with. And it wasn't in a sudden way like just addressing it. It was through time and being in touch with myself."
At Fire & Flower, we create a space of radical acceptance for girls to know, feel, see and express how amazing they are, just as they are, because they are! This is LGBTQ2SIAP+ inclusive and welcoming space.
In this time of big changes, we also involve adult caregivers to promote connection and communication in these special relationships. We invite one parent/caregiver/special adult to join us on Friday afternoon for special activities. 12:30-3pm for our 10-12 program; 1-4pm for our 12-14 program.
*Program themes include:
- Sisterhood – Celebrating the many ways we are unified as girls and unique as individuals
- Body Love – Examining media’s portrayal of women and seeing the real beauty in diversity
- Our Awesome Bodies – Menstruation, emotional shifts and physical developments, sexual attraction
- Staying Connected to Parents – Communication and quality-time with our caregivers
In addition, our 10-12 program explores friendship and power dynamics, and empowers girls to create cultures of sisterhood and dignity for all. Our 12-14 program includes healthy intimate relationships, teaching a model that balances values, emotions, knowledge and the body. We also dive deeper into sex & sexuality, navigating self- and shared pleasure, consent and social media.
