Be WISE is a Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math Camp (STEM) designed to develop interest, excitement, and self-confidence in young women.   We have two camps for girls–one for girls entering grades 7 and 8 in the fall of 2023 and one for girls who are entering grades 5 and 6 in the fall of 2023.

The Residential Camp began in the summer of 1989.   Over 3,700 girls have completed the camp program. Camp 2023 will be the camp’s 34th year of residential camp. (One year missed because of COVID.) 

Mission Statement.  

Be WISE Camp’s mission is to develop interest, excitement, and self-confidence in middle school girls in Science, Technology, Engineering,and Math (STEM).  The camp is designed to provide real-life, hands-on experiences in STEM using problem solving and thinking skills.  We hope to encourage and motivate the girls to enroll in more STEM classes at the high school and college levels to prepare them for careers in a STEM field.  

The Residential Camp will be held at Muskingum University, New Concord, OH.   It will feature a separate curriculum for 7th and 8th graders. This provides a different experience if 7th graders wish to return to camp another year.  

While at Muskingum University, the experience includes sleeping and eating in a college dorm, learning in science labs, and using campus recreational areas.
