Girl Shaped Flames: Skill Development Workshops, Camps and Industry Excursions for Teen Girls in Brisbane
Girl Shaped Flames sees each teenage girl’s potential as a fire in her belly. They help them identify their own passions and potential, and then build their confidence and skills and ‘fan their flames’, preparing them for the best chance of happiness and successful futures.
They do this by connecting teen girls in high school (Grades 7-12) with Extraordinary Women at the top of their fields to provide confidence and skill development opportunities.
Each event and experience is designed to help shape how your daughter thinks, what she strives for, and why she wants it. Girl Shaped Flames believes that your girls are strong enough, passionate enough and determined enough to blaze a trail that leaves the world with no choice but to embrace their extraordinary talents and ideas.
But they also believe that in order to do this successfully your daughters need support and opportunities. The development of tangible, real-world advice and skills passed on from women who have tread the path before and are now doing impressive things in their fields.
Camp Courage – January 2020
Camp Courage is a unique all-girls 3-day experience that provides teen girls (Grades 7-12) the tools to build their own sense of self, confidence, and opinions – and leave with the increased courage and skills to succeed in school, relationships, work and life.
Hosted by Girl Shaped Flames founder, Tanya Meessmann, and Hollywood Stunt Artist Ky Furneaux, participants will:
- Disconnect from the digital world
- Connect with like-minded girls
- Receive 1:1 mentoring from the camp co-hosts
- De-pressurise and refocus on goals and their sense of self
Set in the stunning landscapes of Ivorys Rock, this experience is intimate and life-changing. Strictly limited to 30 girls per camp, over the course of the 3 days attendees will participate in 6 x intensive sessions led by Girl Shaped Flames’ Extraordinary Women that explore six key areas of courage that have been identified to prepare young women to make their impact on the world:
- Physical Courage
- Intellectual Courage
- Social Courage
- Moral Courage
- Emotional Courage
- Courage to pursue your Purpose
The camp is best suited to girls who want to:
- Understand themselves better during this critical stage of development in their lives
- Build a better understanding of their own moral, social and intellectual viewpoints and decision-making
- Increase their confidence and capacity to pursue their goals
- Harness existing confidence to take their ambition to the next level
