About Transformations Camp
Regina Malveaux, previous CEO of YWCA Spokane, began the Transformations Camp program in 2014 in response to a growing request for support with self-esteem and identity issues from young women of color. The camp grew with success each year until 2019. After taking a two year break due to the pandemic, we were proud to bring this camp back in 2022 through a new partnership with Jaime Stacy and SWAG (Strong Women Achieving Greatness).
What To Expect
Participants will gather in a safe environment, build confidence, identify their own strengths, and build healthy relationships. The camp provides workshops on what to do when bullied, how to celebrate personal uniqueness, healthy discussions about body image, and how to resolve conflict. This camp provides young people with a chance to develop lasting connections with their cohort members and is a springboard for leadership opportunities moving forward.
This Camp is free for participants and includes a progressive curriculum with a certificate upon completion. Breakfast, lunch, and snacks will be provided. Participants will receive goodie bags that include branded t-shirts and a gift card for participation.
