2020 Camp Cancelled
2020 Camp Dates: June 7 – 13
2020 Camp Update
As a result of ongoing and rising concerns regarding COVID-19 and the impact of directives from national, state and local leaders, AAUW California has cancelled the nine upcoming Tech Trek camps scheduled on seven college campuses in June and July of 2020.
AAUW’s first priority is the health and welfare of Tech Trek’s 7th grade campers, dedicated camp leaders, their staff and branch volunteers, and hosting campus communities.
This heartbreaking decision is in response to the advice and mandates of U.S.A. government leaders, health authorities and the World Health Organization (WHO) which has declared a global pandemic.
“I had always been worried about going into a male-dominated field,” said one camper in Washington. “Tech Trek has made me feel more confident about my abilities in STEM and has made me want to follow my dreams of becoming a medical engineer.”

At Tech Trek, girls are immersed in a world that empowers and encourages them to think about themselves as future scientists, engineers, mathematicians, and computer specialists.
Tech Trek is a science and math camp designed to develop interest, excitement, and self-confidence in young women who will enter eighth grade in the fall. It features hands-on activities in math, science, and related fields. All sleeping, eating, instructional, and recreational facilities are located on a university campus where camps are held.
