July 8 - 12, 2024
9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Princeton Women's Cultural Center presents Camp Laurelwood, a fun-filled summer day camp for girls entering grades 1-6. We  have the specific aim of encouraging and developing the virtues necessary to become a positive influence with family, friends, and society. Through group activities and counselors talks, our program teaches the virtues of cheerfulness, generosity, personal responsibility, and diligence, promoting genuine femininity while helping each girl to become an authentic leader who serves others. We offer a unique five-day program of character building, arts and crafts, sporting events, games, and skits. The well-rounded, well-organized, fast-paced curriculum is run by a dedicated staff of professional women and students.
