Bloom for Girls

It's time to ignite the conversation!
Join us for a one-day seminar on Sunday, July 13th from 10am to 2pm. Lunch included.

Bloom for Girls, LLC, (ages 10–14 years) was created to open dialogue between moms and daughters during a time in our daughters’ lives that doesn’t have to be sad, hopeless, or stressful. It’s a time of new beginnings, fun, and growth.

Our daughters face a number of challenges that include influences on their lives by social media, technology-based “relationships,” their own changing bodies, transitioning to high school, and building friendships.

A report commissioned by Saint Mary’s College, The Status of Girls in Indiana 2013, indicated that, at this age, girls experience feelings of sadness or hopelessness more often than boys.

Bloom is a program for moms and daughters to begin filling our toolboxes with confidence, self awareness, and gratitude for the gift of womanhood we’ve been given.

Join Bloom for a dynamic workshop that will send you forth inspired to embrace your femininity and celebrate the positives of being a woman in today’s society.

We need to keep talking.
We need to keep questioning.
We need to embrace the power we have as women.
It is our time.


Let's Bloom!

She's in Good Hands.

Phones: Camps at Saint Mary’s have a no phone policy in place for all campers. Because this may be the first experience away from home, some campers may experience separation anxiety. The staff, counselors, and instructors are dedicated to making this period of adjustment as comfortable as possible for everyone involved. The phone policy has been established for the welfare of the entire camp program. In an emergency, parents may contact their children through the camp office or the camp director.

Homesickness: Homesickness may be an issue at camp, especially for those campers who are away from home for the first time. Staff members have been trained to react to homesickness with compassion and sympathy. Our counselors will help homesick campers focus on exciting camp activities, making new friends, and the fun atmosphere of the experience.

Residence Halls: Campers stay in residence halls at Saint Mary’s that feature 24-hour desk staff. Counselors are housed in close proximity to their campers and a nighttime supervisor is on call and available from 8 p.m.–8 a.m. Saint Mary’s Security staff is available and accessible at all time. Campers may request specific roommates prior to coming to camp at Saint Mary’s.
