Hear From Our Past Campers...

I learned a lot about myself, not just STEM. With a solid cornerstone set by Camp Reach, I gained problem-solving skills and confidence to carry me anywhere…Now out of college, I am a mechanical engineer—and I continue to mentor women in engineering.

I had no prior knowledge about engineering and knew very little about technology. Camp Reach does a phenomenal job mentoring young girls and exposing them to math, science, and engineering principles that are not typically taught in schools.

One workshop that stands out in my mind taught us about the engineering design cycle, materials engineering, ergonomics… we made shoes! It was amazing for me to consider how much thought and work had gone into the design and construction of my sneaker.

One thing that struck me deeply was the sheer drive, passion, and enthusiasm of every RA, TA, and professor at the camp. These strong, positive, and uplifting emotions were contagious, and helped establish a welcoming and rich learning environment.
