About Girlstart Summer Camp:
Girlstart Summer Camps are week-long STEM programs for girls entering the 4th-8th grades in 2021-2022. 4th-5th and 6th-8th grade camps run simultaneously during the summer and are held in separate activity spaces for in-person camps. These programs achieve consistent positive outcomes by combining formal and informal educational strategies with challenging and relevant STEM curriculum. Girlstart Summer Camps provide individualized experiences that develop a strong conceptual understanding of STEM subjects and increase participants’ interest in STEM activities and careers.

Recently recognized by Change the Equation as one of four exemplary STEM education programs in America, Girlstart’s Summer Camp programs have consistently received national recognition. Girlstart Summer Camp allows girls to explore STEM in a fun, informal environment, and equips girls with STEM skills they will use for life.

Girlstart cultivates a culture where risk is rewarded, curiosity is encouraged, and creativity is expected. As a result, Girlstart girls are connected, brave, and resilient. Girlstart makes girls more successful, and inspires them to take on the world’s greatest challenges.

Girlstart’s top priority is the safety of the campers in our care, our staff and volunteers, and our community. To provide maximum COVID-19 safety and STEM fun this summer, we will meet or exceed guidelines provided by the CDC, the American Camp Association, and state and local health departments.

To ensure that all Girlstart girls have the opportunity to participate in summer camp in a way they are comfortable with, we are offering reduced-capacity in-person camp weeks as well as one week of virtual camps per theme! We can’t wait to host our nationally recognized week-long STEM summer camps just for girls entering 4th-8th grades in 2021-2022. Even in the middle of a pandemic we served over 1000 girls in 2020 and are looking forward to serving you this summer. Back by popular demand, our original 2020 themes (that sold out within four weeks last year!) will be offered over seven weeks throughout June and July.
