Girl Scout Camp CEO is a unique mentorship program that matches teen girls with powerful female executives in the Washington, DC area.
The women invited to attend represent a variety of career fields â€” from banking and law to real estate, academia and government. Reston Limousine’s president and CEO Kristina Bouweiri will be attending and mentoring for the first time. This year’s camp will be held Aug. 5-10, 2012 at Girl Scout Camp Winona in Hughesville, MD.
The Camp CEO theme is “Women who should be famous!” The goal is for girls to identify role models who, because of their contributions to the community, should be famous. “This theme will help girls understand themselves and their potential, and help to build their self-esteem,” wrote Lidia Soto-Harmon, CEO of Girl Scout Nation’s Capital.
All campers participate in traditional camp activities, such as cooking over camp fires, kayaking and swimming. There will be a luau, hip-hop dance session and a host of other activities. Throughout the week, the female CEOs will share their life experiences, education, careers and leadership skills with the teen girls.
Other female executives expected to attend: Natalie Givans, senior vice president at Booz Allen Hamilton; Debbie Jarvis, vice president of corporate affairs at PEPCO; Kathleen Mathews, executive vice president of global communications at Marriott International; Jeri Fellerman, senior vice president at Wells Fargo Bank; and about two dozen other professional leaders in their fields.
