Girls' Leadership Weekend

Join other girls (Grade 6-12) for a weekend of fun while building leadership skills at our beautiful 264-acre Blairstown Campus located near the Delaware Water Gap National Recreational Area in New Jersey.  Learn to build your confidence, overcome your fears, take healthy risks, work cooperatively, and creatively solve problems as a team while you complete our challenge course elements, successfully navigate high ropes elements, rappel down a 35 foot dam, build rafts, and go canoeing!

The cost per person is $100 and includes five professionally-prepared, healthy meals plus snacks, all programming costs, and lodging in rustic log cabins complete with bunk beds and wood stoves.  Nearby wash houses provide clean, modern facilities with hot water and showers. Space is limited to the first 60 participants.  Contact Meredith Murray at mmurray@princetonblairstown.org for more information or to register.

Impacts of Today's Political Climate on Vulnerable Children and Families

Since Inauguration Day, a flurry of executive orders and cabinet appointments, along with the Republican majority in Congress, foreshadows dramatic changes that will  impact vulnerable children and their families in significantly negative ways.  Parental deportations, immigration bans, cutbacks in free and reduced price meals,  Medicaid cuts, education vouchers that reduce funds available for public schools,  reduced affordable housing, limited access to healthcare, and an increase in xenophobia are some of these challenges. What does it mean for vulnerable families and how can average citizens be supportive and engaged to help those in need?
