Go Girls! Camp is produced by Spotlight:Girls, an Oakland, CA-based benefit corporation that celebrates and activates girls and women through multi-media learning experiences, products, and events.
Originally “Glitter & Razz Productions,” Spotlight:Girls was founded by Lynn Johnson & Allison Kenny, partners in life and business. In 2002, Lynn & Allison met, fell in love, and almost immediately decided to go into business together. The following year, Glitter & Razz began life as a once a year summer camp at the Marsh Youth Theater in San Francisco (2003-2006). We moved to the East Bay officially in 2006 and in 2007 moved into the Glitter & Razz Dramatic Play Space – a creative co-op located in the heart of Oakland, CA’s Rockridge district – where we lived until 2012.
During our time in Rockridge, we served hundreds of girls and boys ages 4-11 through summer camps, school-break camps, after-school programs, birthday parties, and other special programs. We built and grew very popular programs such as Go Girls!, Itty Bitty Arts Camps and Active Imagination for Boys.
In 2012, after a process of deep and heart-centered reflection, we made the decision to focus our business around our internal passion for and market success of Go Girls! Camp. We knew that we could better work towards of vision of igniting a Compassion Revolution by putting girls center stage. To this end, Spotlight: Girls strives to be a socially and environmentally responsible business that values peace, generosity, justice and equity, self-discipline, beauty and love.
