The College Offers Summer Programs for Girls of All Ages.
Bay Path College is offering four separate summer programs designed specifically for girls and young women, including GO Girls, It’s MY Business, Science Matters! and Film Matters. Based at the Longmeadow campus, the programs use the College facilities and are led by Bay Path College faculty or staff.
GO Girls, for girls ages five to 12, is a summer discovery program featuring arts, theater, computers, sports and team games. In this fun-filled and action packed program, girls build a sense of confidence and accomplishment that will make this program a lifelong experience. The week concludes with the popular variety show The Big Show, giving each girl the opportunity to be on stage and perform with a group or individually. GO Girls will be offered the weeks of June 23 and July 7.
Now in its second year, It’s MY Business gives young women with an interest in business the opportunity to master the theory and practice of entrepreneurship. This highly creative and interactive program will guide participants through the steps of taking an idea and turning into a reality. Participants will have the opportunity to interact with and learn directly from local entrepreneurs, business people and business faculty members. It’s MY Business is offered the week of July 14.
Science Matters, for girls entering grade seven in the fall of 2008, is a unique, hands-on science discovery program. This interactive program will introduce the beauty and intricacies of science to young girls, guiding learners in an exploration of microbes, plants, paleoecology, the environment, the human body and much more. Utilizing the state-of-the-art science laboratory facility and led by Dr. Gina Semprebon, director of the science programs at Bay Path College, Science Matters will be offered the week of July 21.
New this summer for young women ages 13-15, Film Matters is a one week hands-on workshop focusing on all aspects of video and film production.
