Rebuilt to F.L.Y.

To Build

Through key partnerships that include The Nashville Predators Foundation, Youth For Christ and several other community partners, the Rebuilt to F.L.Y., or Forever Love Yourself, summer experience provides key programming centered around building relationships with peers, family/community and themselves. Our F.L.Y. Girls experience a process that incorporates social-emotional learning through crucial conversations, weekly field trips, creative activities, and character development workshops.

To heal

Additionally, through a partnership with the Metro Nashville Police Department, participants get the opportunity to go through a week-long, one of a kind experience aimed directly at girls, the Youth Citizens Police Academy. This portion of the experience directly addresses strained relationships with law enforcement and girls in urban communities. This component provides youth and police the opportunity to answer tough questions head-on and take a closer look at each other's worlds.

It's Not Just a camp...It's an experience!
