AWE+SUM Girls Camp


Summer Camp Changes and Cancellations

Due to the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, in-person summer camps, including athletic camps, are canceled and the Money 101 camp will be hosted online. Questions about refunds for canceled camps should be directed to the camp organizer. Westminster College's main priority continues to be the health, safety, and wellness of camp participants, student-athletes, coaches, administrators, and staff.


The AWE+SUM Camp has been cancelled for summer 2020 due to COVID-19 concerns. We look forward to welcoming participants back next year.

Westminster is dedicated to promoting women and diversity in science. AWE+SUM Camp is a unique day camp opportunity for female-identifying students currently in 7th or 8th grade to enjoy individualized, hands-on math and science labs and workshops. Activities support interest in the sciences and show students the variety of careers available in science fields.
