At Girls Who Run Ireland we teach self respect, respect for ones self, self discipline humility, honesty, values and acceptance. We provide a toolkit for young girls that will assist them navigating the turbulent teen years. The program is designed to combine a holistic active wellbeing camp for young girls with lessons that teach actual life skills. We challenge the girls by asking them to ask themselves -Why am I polite? Because I have value and respect for others. Why do I exercise? Because I have self respect. First we learn to love ourselves and love our strengths. The only person whom we have control over is ourselves. We have no control over other people, places and things but we do have control over how we perceive them.

A nutritionist has shared insight and delicious recipes that can be enjoyed by the whole family. Our camp coordinators bring a wealth of knowledge from running a successful award winning business and marathon runner. Both our camp coordinators have been Garda vetted and are committed to safeguarding children and young ladies during their time at camp and in their care. We are mothers to Ryan age 24, Hannah age 11 and Kai age 17, Mischa age 9.
