Be WISE is a Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math Camp (STEAM) designed to develop interest, excitement, and self-confidence in young women.   We have two camps one girls  who are entering grades 7 or 8 in the fall of 2022 and the other is for girls who are entering grades 5 and 6 in the fall of 2022.

The camp began in the summer of 1989 and since then over 3,700 girls have completed the camp program. This summer will be the camp’s 33rd year.

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 (STEAM).  We hope to provide the girls with the confidence and motivation to enroll in more STEM classes at the high school and college levels to prepare them for careers in a STEM field.  Our camp is designed to provide real-life, hands-on experiences in STEAM using problem solving and thinking skills.

This residential camp for 130 girls will be a residential camp this summer at Muskingum University, New Concord, OH.   It will  feature a  curriculum that if 7th grade girls want to return next year to our residential camp they will be able to do a different curriculum.  Maximum interaction and instruction is encouraged.  

We are at Muskingum University, Ohio. This experience includes sleeping and eating in a college dorm, learning in modern science labs and using campus recreational areas.
