“Middle school is a big deal. The social drama of middle school can take its toll on academics, self-esteem and attitudes about school." Michelle Icard, creator of Athena's Path/Hero's Pursuit

Michelle Icard, founder of Michelle in the Michelle, announces the 2013 summer schedule for Athena’s Path and Hero’s Pursuit social leadership summer camps. The camps for tweens in rising grades 5-9 teaches skills to help them navigate the tricky social scene of the middle school.

According to Icard, “Middle school is a big deal. The social drama of middle school can take its toll on academics, self-esteem and attitudes about school. The emotional stress often preoccupies young teens, leaving them unable to focus on academics.”

Icard explains that through games, activities and discussions, Athena’s Path teaches tween girls how to confidently navigate the middle school social scene and be the leaders of their own lives. Athena’s Path girls learn to solve problems creatively, doing what she believes is right, and staying true to herself.

In Hero’s Pursuit, a boy learns to be a leader in his own way to stay confident and be successful. Hero’s Pursuit gives guys the tools they need to lead their own lives, make their own decisions and handle the challenges and opportunities boys face in middle school.
