Registration for summer 2014 is now closed. Select spaces remain in Week 1 depending on age of camper. Please contact Camp Director Stacy Floyd if you're interested in the remaining spaces. Thank you! 

Girls enrolled in SMART Girls Summer Camp learn to be curious and confident young mathematicians, scientists, and artists. Students have two morning academic sessions in which they learn important math, science, technology, and/or creative writing skills through eye-opening experiments and hands-on research. After lunch, campers participate in art, drama, and/or puppetry workshops, designed to inspire creative thinking and build confidence.

Campers can choose 2 of the 4 math, science, technology, or creative writing courses to fill their morning schedules. Every effort will be made to accommodate first choices. In the afternoon, every girl will take drama and have an additional choice of visual art or puppetry. *Course material will differ each week.
