Camp Testimonials

Enrichment Opportunity

"I want to take this time to thank you for providing an enrichment opportunity for middle school aged girls. We were warmly welcomed to the campus. The Physics Camp allowed my daughter to venture beyond her comfort zone. Not only did she make new friends, but she was able to conduct hands-on physics experiments.”

- Sheila F., Mother of camp student 

A Hands-On Experience

"I wanted to let you know how much our family appreciated our daughter being given the opportunity to participate in this event. Any chance that a young student is provided to get deeper into math and science I feel should be taken advantage of. The hands-on, practical, introduction to science made it fun and interesting. Participating in this event has opened new conversations between us about what our daughter's future might be."

- Todd R., Father of camp student

Engagement and Impact

"I think that the girl’s camp this year was one of the best that we had... not just because of how fun and engaged the campers were this year to learn physics, but also because of how well the camp impacted me. It is because of this summer’s girl’s camp that I recalled why I love physics... helped me realize why I wanted to become a physicist in the first place."

- Oberon Wackwitz ’18, Former camp member
