THE WALK CAMP
To inspire and empower young girls to love and own they are with confidence. Giving them opportunities to go after their dreams and goals despite their circumstances in life.
In 2013 Stacey Mckenzie, whom saw the need to help young girls from urban communities that she came from created The Walk Camp. The Walk Camp is a 2 week day camp for girls ages 12-16, that takes place in both Toronto, Canada and Kingston, Jamaica every summer. Mentors are chosen to give the girls the real deal story into their lives, learning how they overcame obstacles and made the best of their circumstances. They will be able to relate to the mentors and recognize that they too can be whatever they want to be. The girls will then have the opportunity to learn as well as actively be a part of the Fashion / Design, TV film, Media , Health & Wellness and Music industries from each mentor. From learning to love and own who they are through self esteem building workshops, making an outfit, writing / directing their own movie, they will be inspired and empowered to be their best selves despite their circumstances in life.
“ From the first time I went to the camp, I immediately wanted to go back every year. Auntie Stacey is such a loveable and kind person, I love how she makes us do fun activities where we have to learn how to work together as a team and to love and be kind to ourselves and one another."
