Girlstart Summer Camps are week-long STEM programs for girls entering the 4th-8th grades in 2024-2025. All Girlstart camps include a balance of hands-on STEM activities, relevant technology, collaborative team building, and informal camp fun! 2023 Camp Themes Include: Wild World, Get a Clue, and Girlstart Creates!

Wild World (rising 4th-5th & 6th-8th graders)
June 3-7, June 10-14, June 17-21*
Primates and cacti and fish, oh my! Bring the relationship between animals and plants to life as you engineer a circuit bug and design a unique axolotl habitat. Create a glider that soars with the birds, learn about bioluminescence, and program a plant-watering system. From tiny terrariums to elephant adaptations, campers will use STEM to explore their favorite living things!
*No camp on Wednesday, June 19th

Get a Clue (rising 4th-5th & 6th-8th graders)
June 24-28, July 8-12, July 15-19
Help Girlstart crack the case! Channel your inner forensic scientist as you dust for fingerprints, analyze DNA, and examine trace evidence. Decipher secret messages with cryptography, blood type with microscopy, and unravel puzzles in an escape room challenge. Campers will solve a mystery as they eliminate suspects throughout the week!

Girlstart Creates (rising 4th-5th & 6th-8th graders)
July 22-26, July 29-August 2
Calling all creators! Code an abstract painting with HTML, engineer a pinhole camera, and use chemical principles to create lip gloss. Illuminate the world of dance with electrical engineering and draw biomedical illustrations using CAD software. From colorful chemistry to adventurous animation, campers will let their creativity shine through STEM exploration!
