All Girls* Camps

As part of our mission to bring science and engineering to groups that are traditionally underrepresented in STEM (Science, Engineering, Technology & Mathematics) fields, Geering Up hosted All Girls* camps throughout the summer of 2022 as well as All Girls* Week. Join us in 2023 to explore new technologies and celebrate girls* in STEM!

To receive updates on when we will open our All Girls* camps as well as our other camp programs, sign up for our mailing list!

*The Geering Up team has an inclusive view of the words ‘girl’ and ‘women’ and use * to specifically and intentionally include cis and trans women, as well as genderqueer or non-binary people and other gender minorities.

What are All Girls* Summer Camps?

In addition to our regular camps, certain camps throughout the summer will be designated as All Girls* camps held in girl*-focused spaces! If you are looking to register a boy please take a look at our general camps page! In-person camps run from 9am-3pm each day and run for four or five days.

What is the Science Behind All Girls* Summer Camps?

The All Girls* programs are designed to work towards rectifying the disparity of representation of girls in STEM. We do this through providing fun and interesting opportunities to explore STEM in a space where girls can work together. If you would like to learn about the science behind the All Girls* programs, please check out the resources linked below!

What is All Girls* Week?

Geering Up holds an All Girls* week every summer to encourage girls* to discover and explore their love of science and engineering. By creating a girl*-focused space, we hope to help shrink that gender gap by encouraging and inspiring the next generation of women* in STEM!

Grade Levels: Grades 1-12 (varies by Camp Theme)


We believe that every person should be able to participate in our programs, and so we are working hard to bring you summer courses through these challenging times. As such, please see the information regarding our camp bursaries.
