Great Taste Design has been investing in girl power since 2009 with its Fashion Camps, which is in partnership with New Castle County Summer Camps. Fashion Camp takes a unique approach to supporting the girls power revolution as it mixes the love for art and design with building self-efficacy. Participants learn goal-setting and project planning skills as they develop the “Yes I Can” attitude. It teaches sewing, design, leadership and life skills in an all-girl format. Campers will design and produce several take-home projects. The program, for ages 7-13, is $175 per camper, and runs from July 22-26. For more information, call 357-9521.
