Two girls

We had a successful and super fun Camp Girls on the Run the two summers. Our staff and coaches have been thrilled with all the ways the campers built new friends, used new vocabulary to describe feelings and friendship qualities, and showed excitement for being active and creative. We were also so impressed by how supportive, kind and helpful everyone was. All coaches and campers let their unique skills shine!

Camp GOTR in 2024 will be at:  

  • TBD Summer 2024: New Bedford Public Schools
  • August 12-16. 2024:Friend's Academy, Dartmouth MA

Registration Fees

Building confidence and a healthy lifestyle is PRICELESS! However, there are real costs associated with operating a non-profit organization and delivering CAMP GOTR program to each location.

  • 3 to 4 hour morning session conducted by certified GOTR volunteer coaches
  • Curriculum and lesson materials
  • Official GOTR Water Bottle 
  • Offical GOTR Camp Bracelet
  • Camp Supplies

My girl isn't a big runner; is this program for her? OR My girl is already a skilled runner. Is this program for her?

Yes! We are much more than a running program, and every participant can benefit from the experience of building confidence through accomplishment while participating in our rich, curriculum-based, age-appropriate, interactive lessons. Expect lots of games, talking, laughing and processing in addition to running at each practice. And know that when we say run, we mean run, walk, skip, roll or push, just as long as you are moving foward!

What does the program fee include?

Though our cost per particpant is $383, through generous donors we're able to offer the 10-week, 20-lesson program for $180. Your program registration fee includes all lesson materials, including GOTR curriculum, activity sheets, lap counters and more, a GOTR t-shirt, a bib entry into the season-ending 5K, a finisher's medal, and a GOTR water bottle.

We can't afford the program registration fee, but our child would love to participate. How does the scholarship program work?

Don't let cost stop you from participating! We are committed to making Girls on the Run accessible to all who want to particpate! Thanks to generous donors and community supporters, program scholarships are available to any family who needs it, and we can also provide appropriate running shoes and attire if necessary. The online registration form will walk you through a few questions to find the fee that is right for your family based on a sliding scale.

Do girls need to attend both days each week in order to register?

Yes! Since most of our teams fill up quickly, if your girl will be unable to attend all the sessions, please save room for a girl who can, and consider joining us in a future season when she can enjoy the entire program.

Is there a way for me to sponsor a participant for a season?

Yes! As a mission-driven 501(c)3, Girls on the Run relies on generous donors in order to provide more than $30,000 in program scholarships for families in need. Click here to sponsor a participant this season.
