Boolean Girl Summer Camps

Registration Open for Arlington and DC. Check back for Montgomery Co.

Boolean Girl camps have been recognized multiple times as “Best Camps” by our campers, as well as by regional media outlets. Girls learn computer science and engineering fundamentals through a series of unique projects and hands-on challenges.

Our programs are fun… and that’s not just our opinion. 96% of our students say that they would recommend our coding camps to a friend and want to take another one.

What about Covid?

Boolean Girl will host in-person camps for summer 2021 if it is deemed safe by the federal, state and local authorities, and we are taking reservations now. If we are forced to close camps due to COVID, we will refund every penny of tuition to you. To read more about our COVID response, click here.

Our camps will implement all recommended safety measures, including masks and social distancing. If you register and change your mind before May 30 you can receive a full refund. After May 30th, you can change dates or get a refund, less the non-refundable $50 deposit, up to 2 weeks before the start of camp. Two weeks before the start of camp there are no refunds, but you may switch to an online camp. Online camp registration opens March 1.

WHAT MAKES OUR CAMPS SPECIAL?

  • In addition to coding, circuitry, and engineering, we teach broader skills such as teamwork and digital citizenship.
  • STEM professionals provide inspiration and guidance about opportunities is STEM.
  • We have fun! Our students learn to code through playing interactive, offline games, and we go outside on breaks.
  • Our curriculum is aligned with state and national standards for computer science.

Why Choose Boolean Girl

Friday at Boolean Girl Camps

On Fridays we celebrate our discoveries and achievements. We bring in lunch, show off our work, and are joined by one or more Boolean Girl ambassadors. Ambassadors are women working in STEM fields. They might be programmers, but we’ve also had civil engineers, electrical engineers, and even architects join our camps for the afternoon. Ambassadors share their experience in STEM, and they might lead a short project, talk about careers in STEM, and discuss the girls’ projects with them. Learn More

Before and after Care

Before and after care options are available. View details and make your selections during registration.

Our Campers Say it Best

"The thing I love about the camps is working together. I did the electronics camp and it was cool to work with my new friends to build stuff."
"My daughter has absolutely loved your classes!"
"I liked the class! I did not know how to code half of the things I can code now! The class helped me a lot."
"What did you love about the class? Our daughter has felt challenged and is now so engaged about learning everything about coding!!!"
"My daughter Marley has attended most of the Full STEM Ahead courses (Scratch ones, she is in 3rd grade) and has really enjoyed it. She continues to build in Scratch even after the courses."
