Little Women Coming of Age

Our coming of age camp has finally arrived! 

Miss Teaspoon is launching our very own coming of age camp called Little Women. The first of its kind in Malaysia, the camp celebrates the transition of girlhood to womanhood, helping young girls enter adolescence with strength and self-confidence.

Named after Louisa May Alcott's book, Little Women explores the coming of age that performs a role similar to that of a rite of passage. It prepares girls through understanding bodily changes, exploring taboo topics on puberty and sex, and setting healthy perspectives on maturity.

Hannah Tan, the founder of Miss Teaspoon recognises that providing a safe platform is the solution to the growing issues amongst young girls. Tan explains that the connection between girls of the same age forges strong bonds that set a perfect tone for them to flourish, 

“just girls being girls. It’s liberating and empowering!”

The 3 days 2 nights camp is set in the tranquillity of Templer Park Forest Reserve, Rawang. Little Women encourages full immersion into nature and infuses Malaysian culture in activities that range from wearing sarongs, dance, gamelan and mandi bunga.

Open to girls’ ages 11 years – 15 years, the camp will run from June 1 – June 3 2015. 

Laughter, sweat, creativity, reflection, and new friendships all come together for those who are willing to discover more about themselves and their unique contributions to the world.
