The mission of FITGirl, Inc is to empower girls and young women through outdoor, multi-sport adventures to lead healthy, resilient lives.
One in four young people is suffering from depression, while one in five is struggling with anxiety.
Researchers have shown that outdoor play and nature-based activities are important tools to help teenagers cope with major stressors like the COVID-19 pandemic, and other global stressors. Researchers also underscore the mental health implications of restricting outdoor recreation opportunities for adolescents, and the need to increase access to the outdoors.
Our kids are the future…
By age 14, only 1 in 10 girls are doing enough physical activity to benefit their health compared with roughly twice the number of boys of the same age.*
A strong body yields a strong mind. Our monthly community courses and summer camps provide fun, physical fitness activities that give girls something to look forward to each month and in the summer. The classes and camps also provide opportunities for girls to build deep connections with others in a safe, trusting environment allowing them to learn more about themselves and others.
Ultimately, we want our outdoor programs to provide life-long skills, build confidence, increase physical activity, improve mood, and educate girls on how to participate in a variety of outdoor activities safely and independently.
One adventure at a time.
