Girls will challenge their minds by strengthening their problem solving skills and learning object-oriented programming using Java.  They will nurture their bodies and well-being through meditation and yoga.  Each day girls will enjoy Java programming classes, yoga instruction, hear from guest speakers, and tour the UMBC campus.  At the end of the week the girls will showcase their week’s achievements.



Girls who qualify for free or reduced meals (FARMs) at school qualify for a summer camp scholarship that reduces the rate of camp significantly.  To apply for a scholarship,  we request that you send or email us a copy of the letter or form sent by school districts to inform you that your daughter qualifies for free and reduced meals on official school or district letterhead to  We will notify you of the scholarship award and camp fee upon confirmation of the FARMs status.
