Famlies Magazine Voted Best Day Camp

Heather Cole is founder and owner of Modeling Camp. Originally from England, Heather moved to the US when she was 18 years old. She started her modeling career in New York in 1989 and went on to model internationally for eight years, working for magazines such as Vogue, Marie Claire and Elle. In 1995, she settled in Virginia and opened The Model Source, a modeling agency serving the Washington DC Metropolitan area. The following year, Heather started ‘Modeling Camp’ – a series of personal development programs for young girls ages 7 - 18. Since then, the camp has grown to include instruction in Personal Grooming, Fashion Design, Modeling and Etiquette. Currently, over 600 girls each year come to Modeling Camp to enjoy a variety of programs. In 2005, she became certified as a children’s etiquette consultant, trained by The Protocol School of Washington®, under the instruction of the renowned etiquette expert, Dorothea Johnson and opened Miss Cotillion Camp - an etiquette and social graces program for young girls. Heather's camps are designed to empower young girls with the confidence and poise that they will need to succeed in life. Her goal is for all girls to realize their inner beauty and to leave the programs with a stronger sense of self-esteem.
