About the Trip

Some call it fun and some may call it MADNESS!  Make new friends with girls from around the United States who take part in this mad week of adventure. Use Camp Ehawee as your home base as you step out to experience everything the Midwest has to offer.  Adventures include the Mall of America, a Wisconsin Dells waterpark, a Mississippi River cruise on a paddle wheeler, finding your favorite fair food at the Wisconsin State Fair, and challenging your mind at the Minnesota Science Museum. Spend time discovering our local attractions while you connect with the other girls who come to this one-of-a-kind opportunity from far and wide (even internationally).  As part of this experience, you will explore and challenge your own potential as you learn about and speak with inspirational women in a variety of career fields on this incredible 10 day journey.
