GMA Trend: Young Girls Attend Model Camp
There’s a new trend for young girls who dream of becoming runway stars: modeling camp. The camp allows teens channeling their inner supermodel to try to find out what it takes to have a career on the catwalk.
“It’s camp, it’s summer camp, it’s just like soccer camp or golf camp or math camp and here for the week, everybody’s a model,” Heather Cole, founder of modeling camp said.
Modeling Camp Cost: $1000 Weekly
There’s no bug spray or sleeping bags at this camp, which costs almost $1000 for the week. Modeling camp gives girls ages 12 – 18 a taste of what it’s like to really be a model.
Girls who attend get world class treatment like exposure to industry pros, professional pictures and training on the catwalk.
Modeling Summer Camp: Wilhelmina & Elite Agencies
The girls even meet with big-time modeling agencies like Elite and Wilhelmina. Business at the camp is booming, and girls from places like London and Venezuela are traveling to the States for the camp.
Modeling: Eating Disorders and Underage Exploitation
“It’s not appropriate, it’s not our place,” Cole said. “It’s camp, this is summer camp and girls are coming to have fun. We’re not looking to get into anything negative.”
GMA: Runway Show at the End of Model Camp
The camp tries to teach inner beauty…as well as how to pose. There is also a runway show at end of camp for all the parents.
