The Summer 2020 Girls Code camps will not be held. Please check back for Summer 2021.

Cost: Free

Campers can sign up for up to three camps on a first-come, first-served basis. Lunch is included.

Girls Code includes eight, one-week camps at St. Mary’s University about coding. The camps, limited to 20 students per camp, are taught by St. Mary’s professors and are for girls who will be in grades 6 through 8 in Fall 2020.

Campers will learn about various topics, languages and tools within the computer science field. Each camp will have a speaker from the computer industry and will see various technology laboratories on field trips around the St. Mary’s University campus. Each camp has a student project that can be shown to family on the last afternoon of the camp.

All camps meet Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., with an extra half hour on Friday to complete showing projects.
