2019 Empower Camp Registration

2019 Camp Scholarships

Need-based scholarships are back!

image38

Empower Camp was recently gifted a generous donation which allows us to provide need-based scholarships to our campers again for the 2019 season. We believe that if a young woman wants to attend camp, she should have the opportunity to do so!

Empower Camp is open to all interested young women, ages 13-18, who are interested in making new friends with other empowered women...because that’s kind of our thing! 


Join us for new Empower Camp memories this August 10 - 13, 2019. We heard the feedback loud and clear from our campers last summer that camp needed to be longer which is why we’ve added a whole day to camp for more laughs, more memories and more power in our souls!

Duffield Camp & Retreat Center

The Property

image43

Duffield Camp & Retreat Center is a beautiful 137 acre campground located in Delevan, NY (one hour south of Buffalo) that serves as a camp, conference center and retreat space.


Since 1950, Duffield has been welcoming campers of all ages to experience the beauty of nature and to provide the perfect setting to create ridiculously fun camp memories.  


Empower Camp is excited to be returning to Camp Duffield for our second year. 

The Lodging

image44

Campers will stay in modern cabins with bunk beds, electricity and bathrooms. These cabins totally qualify as "glamping"... AKA glamorous camping.


Each cabin will have two counselors with approximately eight gals per cabin. Cabins will be assigned based on age groups. 


An important part of cabin life is tribe spirit! Each cabin will be assigned a team name, and a part of the Empower Camp Chant. Campers will build strong relationships with their cabin mates throughout camp.

Dining

image45

We will eat together at the Dining Hall, Janeway, where delicious food is aplenty (Thanks to our amazing volunteer kitchen staff led by the infamous Chef Pam!). Nutritious and delicious - each main course will leave your belly full and happy.


You will never go hungry at Empower Camp with mid-day snack deliveries and as many second helpings as your heart desires. 


Hydration will be top of mind and we ensure water is available at every snack, meal and available throughout each day. (H2O is the way to go!)


Have a food allergy or special consideration? Not a problem, our team is happy to discuss with you to accommodate!
