Date With Dad Weekend

Date With Dad Weekend

Connecting Fathers And Daughters Wherever They Are

Established in 2008 by Camp Diva's Leadership Academy Girl Action Team, Date With Dad is a fun-filled weekend for dads and daughters at various locations throughout the month.


There’s no denying that a woman’s relationship with her father is one of the most crucial in her life. The quality of that connection— good, damaged, or otherwise—powerfully impacts dads and daughters in a variety of ways. A father’s effect on his daughter’s psychological well-being and identity is far-reaching. A daughter’s sense of self, for instance, is often connected to how her father views her. A girl stands a better chance of becoming a self-confident woman if she has a close bond with her father.
