Community Building

Learn more about others, affirm your values, and discover what it means to be part of the Magnificat community through daily “get to know you” activities. Art and gardening projects during the second week will incorporate prayer, service, knowledge, creativity, and fun! 

Health and Wellness

Caring for our health and wellness is a lifelong journey. Magnificat’s experienced counseling team will share proactive strategies for young women to manage stress and maintain a positive outlook in everyday life and in the face of challenges. Yoga, meditation, time management, communication, problem solving, and use of positive affirmations are among the tools we’ll explore together.

STEM

Discover the intriguing interactions between science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM)! In the first week we'll learn about stop motion animation by creating flip books and bringing “inanimate” objects like tape dispensers and cookie cutters to life. Next we'll explore physics and chain reactions through Rube Goldberg Machines, and then in Week 3 we'll delve into the three states of matter (plus slime) as we take a closer look at molecular structure through engaging, hands-on experiments!

Leadership

Magnificat alumnae have gone on to succeed and lead in a wide range of careers. Each day participants will hear from leaders in various professions who will share their experiences, answer questions, and give advice to the next generation of women making a difference in the world.
