Event description

Description

Some girls in our community are not able to participate in Girl Talk full time throughout the year, due to our capacity and/or their capacity to commit. The Ultimate Girl Talk Experience is the perfect opportunity for girls in all of Knox County to get a glimpse of Girl Talk all in one weekend!

The Ultimate Girl Talk Experience is a conference – styled event that is open to 4th – 12th grade girls. Different topics and sessions are designed for each age group to tackle the most important and relevant issues that each age group faces. We also offer special tracks for the transitional years of 6th and 9th grade girls to encourage and support our girls through this time of transition. 6th & 9th grade girls often struggle with not fitting in with the rest of the age groups, so we want them to know that they have support and they are not alone.

Another exciting component of the Ultimate Girl Talk Experience is THE ULTIMATE SLEEPOVER! Girls will get to experience our sleepovers on a larger scale and with girls from all over Knoxville. We have conversation topics for each age group, a dance party, inflatables, food, games and more!

Parents are responsible for tranporting their daughter to and from the event.

Your daughter will be greeted by a staff member or volunteer of Girl Talk and led safely inside to her group leader. Parents are responsible for signing their daughter in and out to ensure the child is tranferred from one adult to another.

Yes. Please feed your daughter dinner prior to the event. We will have pizza and snacks later that evening, but it will be after 9pm before they eat again.
