GIRLS ONLY! CAMPS
What are Girls Only! Camps?
As part of our mission to bring science and engineering to groups traditionally underrepresented in STEM (Science, Engineering, Technology & Mathematics) Geering Up will host Girls Only! camps every week throughout the summer.
What does that mean? We run a week of our regular programming (same activities, same camps!) with a few surprise twists that is only available to girl campers. Offering a Girls Only! environment provides a safe space to encourage girls in discovering and exploring their love of science and engineering.
When are Girls Only! Camps offered?
For 2019, Girls Only! Week is July 22nd to 26th at the UBC Vancouver campus and in South Surrey. In addition to this Girls Only week where ALL camps will only be available to girl campers, we will also be hosting one girls only camp each week throughout the summer. For more specific details on the schedule of Girls Only camp’s and all of Vancouver Schedule please visit our website here.
We also run an after-school Girls Only! club during the school year, and the Faculty of Applied Science often runs engineering outreach targeted at girls.
