Summer camp registration is open! Austin has a plethora of camps and many of them are filling up fast.
In the coming weeks leading up to summer, we'll be introducing different camps in our Summer Camp Series in order to give you an idea of what's available, and to help you find the right camp for your kiddos.
Today's featured camp is the Girlstart Camps.
Girlstart aspires to be the national leader in designing and implementing innovative, high quality informal STEM education programs that inspire girls to transform our world.
The world’s greatest challenges need new STEM ideas and insights. Yet half of the world’s potential ideamakers—women and girls—are discouraged from developing vital STEM ideas.
We believe that more girls with more ideas will create more solutions to benefit us all.
At Girlstart, we cultivate a culture where risk is rewarded, curiosity is encouraged, and creativity is expected. Girlstart girls are connected, brave, and resilient. Girlstart makes girls more successful and inspires them to take on the world’s greatest challenges.
Through its comprehensive programming, Girlstart provides a year-round, intensive suite of STEM education programs for K-12 girls. Girlstart’s core programs foster STEM skills development, an understanding of the importance of STEM as a way to solve the world’s major problems, as well as an interest in STEM electives, majors, and careers.
Girlstart Summer Camps
Girlstart Summer Camps are week-long STEM programs for girls entering the 4th-8th grades in 2018-2019.
Regular and Junior camps run simultaneously during the summer and are held in separate activity spaces. 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.
All Girlstart camp sessions are listed in our Camp Guide. To find the right Girlstart camp for your child, use the awesome search functionality of our Camp Guide and search the Girlstart camps (or any other camps) by your child's age, the dates your child wants to go to camp, the price you're able or willing to pay, and your preferred location.
