What are All-Girls 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 All Girls* camps every week throughout the summer.
What does that mean? We run a week of our regular programming (same activities, same camps!) in a girl-focused space. If you are looking to register a boy please take a look at our general camps page!
Geering Up holds an All Girls week every summer to encourage girls to discover and explore their love of science and engineering. We run all-girls programming because there is still a gender gap in most STEM fields. By creating a girl-focused space we hope to encourage and inspire the next generation of women in STEM and help to shrink that gender gap.
*We welcome trans, genderqueer, and non-binary folks interested in this camp as we have an inclusive view of the word ‘girl’.

For 2020, All Girls Week is July 20th to 24th at the UBC Vancouver campus and in South Surrey. In addition to this All Girls week where ALL camps will only be available to girl campers, we will also be hosting one all girls camp each week throughout the summer.
