Information on this page is up-to-date in July 2020.
Please view our 2020 policies.

The camper application and wait lists are now offline.
Thank you for making this a memorable summer!


Girls in Science, a program of Sci-Tech camp, targets the current gender gap that exists worldwide in the STEM fields. We believe that immersing young girls in a friendly and engaging science environment during the summer will help to foster greater confidence in science-related fields and develop key skills and habits.

  Campers will work together in their groups to design and construct life-size boats, solve a murder mystery with forensic science, build model bridges to walk across, and much more. Our schedule matches that of our Sci-Tech Camp this year, and our counselors are looking forward to spending the whole day with your female scientist-to-be.
