The girls begin talking about this weekend early in the summer, looking forward to the opportunity to build on the relationships with both their peers and the mentors they have come to call friends. The weekend consists of a trip to the spa, camp fires,  “iron chef” competition with the best judges in the world, hiking, laughs, stories and just hanging out. Last year 10 girls attended the adventure along with three amazing mentors, this year GSTA will have16 girls and  3 mentors attend this epic weekend.  Our program continues to grow and we want to thank  Boulder Crest Retreat for their continued support of our Girls Retreat weekend.  On of the girl’s favorite things about the weekend is Boulder Crest Retreat, it is a relaxing, quiet, peaceful, and absolutely stunning getaway.  Thanks to BCR we have already secured our date for 2017.
