bE WISE DAY CAMP – 7/8 GRADE – JULY 27-30, 2021

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 one girls  who are entering grades 7 or 8 in the fall of 2021 and the other is for girls who are entering grades 5 and 6 in the fall of 2021.

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 32nd 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 (STEM).  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 STEM using problem solving and thinking skills.

This residential camp for 70 girls will be a day camp this summer at Blendon Woods.   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 Blendon Woods, Sugarbush Day Camp Center, 4265 E Dublin Granville Rd, Columbus, Ohio.  This experience includes educational materials.
