AWE + SUM Girls Camp

AWE + SUM Camp in Summer 2015:  

June 17 - 20 (Wednesday through Saturday)

 

 

Attend Westminster - Explore Science - Use Math 

The AWE+SUM Summer Girls Camp is just for girls entering the 8th grade the following fall. We will admit 72 girls to the camp. Watch this site for further information and application forms, available by February 1st, 2015.

The AWE+SUM Camp is a 4 day residential camp. The camp gives the girls a chance to experience a college campus, with lots of fun activities: science + math hands-on workshops (see the following samples of past workshops below), mixed up with swimming and other on-campus activities, plus a chance to hike in the nearby canyons. Not only do girls see that college is exciting and fun, but also we hope they will learn about many interesting career options in science-related fields.

See below for photos from our previous AWE+SUM camps, plus a list of our generous donors to the program. Contact Camp Director Dr. Carolyn Connell (cconnell@westminstercollege.edu) with any questions about the camp.
