Headfirst Science Travel Camp for Girls


Your daughter’s hunger for science is about to be fed. Big time. Unforgettable days of interactive experiments, exciting group projects, and day/overnight trips to conservation locations like the local Smithsonian Institutions will ignite her passion in a way she’s never imagined. Not only will campers get the chance to witness global efforts to save wildlife species from extinction, they will also get to engage with women experts in the field of science both locally and around the globe. Valuable time with real life role models has the power to shape the campers’ views on how they can impact the world. And ultimately, it gives them the confidence to dream big in a future driven by science.

This unique opportunity includes the following activities:

STEM curriculum experiments

Campers will learn by using their hands as they dive into experiments that teach them about the ocean, jungle, safari and more!

Field Trips to Conservation Experiences 

Campers will see science in action as they travel to the local destinations dedicated to using and promoting science everyday.

Team Building Fun & Real-World Group Projects

In small research teams, girls will dive into experiments and, most importantly, build off each other to gain passion for science through their peers and make an impact on their community.

Nature Walks

Off-site field trips will keep everyone on the move whether it’s behind the scenes of the local conservation or taking day (and night!) hikes to gather data and learn about their surrounding environment.

Female Science Expert Speakers

To ignite their passions, campers will engage with inspirational women in science.  Whether it’s a local marine biologist teaching them what it’s like to research whale migration patterns or live video conferencing with a scientist in the field, these women will light a path towards a future in science
