Growing Routes was started in 2018 with the mission of providing small-group explorations that nurture confidence, creativity, and compassion. These programs inspire participants to seek their highest potential so that they are better equipped to work towards the greater good of society. Growing Routes envisions a world where all people feel empowered to make a positive impact.
Growing Routes was founded by Chloë Rowse who has led summer programs for young girls since 2006. At age 12, Chloë had the idea to start a summer camp to share her love of simple summertime activities. Since then, she has continued to grow these programs under the name Camp Chloë. In 2018 after having thru-hiked the 2,190mi Appalachian Trail, Chloë decided it was time to take the next step forward with Camp Chloë. With the goal of providing meaningful and affordable programs, Growing Routes was formed.
