Girlstart Summer Camp @ Home

*The event has already taken place on this date: Fri, 07/31/2020
Girlstart is excited to offer our new Summer Camp at Home experience! The health of our camp community continues to be our top priority and Girlstart created Summer Camp at Home for girls to be brave, creative, and curious as they engage in fun, hands-on STEM activities, explore different careers, and get inspired by pioneering women in STEM from wherever they are this summer.
The Summer Camp at Home Experience

Summer Camp at Home will reach your camper anywhere and includes everything she needs for a meaningful and successful summer camp experience. Girls will receive:

  • The Summer Camp at Home kit – this includes 15+ hands-on activity materials, a comprehensive engineering journal for self-guided discovery, a camp t-shirt, Girlstart swag, and even a tiny programmable robot for endless hours of fun!
  • Digital video library to supplement her hands-on learning, available for your camper to view at any time.

Additional opportunity to engage with Girlstart via Zoom

  • If your daughter is looking to connect with Girlstart and fellow campers, and has the availability, she is invited to join our daily secure Zoom experience facilitated by Girlstart’s trained summer camp team, available the following times daily each camp week (Monday-Friday):
    • Monday-Thursday: 9:30-11:30am CST, 1:00-2:00pm CST
    • Friday: 9:30-11:30am CST
  • If your camper can’t make the Zoom times, wants to go at her own pace, or overall doesn’t have access, she can still participate in Summer Camp at Home. She will receive everything she needs in her Summer Camp at Home kit to have an amazing, self-guided camp experience!
Summer Camp at Home 2020 Dates & Descriptions

Our Summer Camp at Home kits are being produced by volunteers and staff with social distancing protocols. To make sure we serve our camp community to the best of our ability with manageable virtual camp sizes and not be overwhelmed with production, we ask you to register for a specific week whether your daughter is participating in the Zoom experience or at her own pace. Girlstart is offering two unique kits to give more girls a chance to participate in our camps.
