AWE+SUM

 

ATTEND WESTMINSTER - EXPLORE SCIENCE - USE MATH

The AWE+SUM Camp is a 4 day residential camp for girls who are entering the 8th grade the following fall.  Girls stay in a residence hall at Westminster with numerous chaperones at night, and they are well-chaperoned during the day as well. The camp gives 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.

 

 2017 dates to be determined.

Contact camp director Dr. Carolyn Connell for any questions about the program.
