Girl Scouts is partnering with Fast Enterprises to offer Camp Code for Girls. This FREE one-week camp is designed for girls in grades 7 - 10 (in the 2024-2025 school year) to take part in a variety of educational coding games and activities led by experienced female software developers from FAST Enterprises.

Some of the activities at Camp Code include:

1. Pseudocode

2. Android Fundamentals

3. Object Oriented Programming

4. Android App Development including layouts, styles, widgets, and java programming. Campers build and customize 3 different Android Apps throughout the week.

  • Tic-Tac-Toe App
  • Calculator App
  • Coin Flipper App

5. Cryptography

Women working in various technology-focused professions will provide guest presentations intended to spark Girl Scouts' curiosity about future careers in the STEM fields and the diverse opportunities available to women who code.

Near the end of the last day of camp, family and friends are invited to attend. Campers provide a summary of what they learned at camp and demonstrate one of the apps they created.

As a technology company, Fast Enterprises recognizes that there is a lack of women in technology fields. They are hosting this camp for Girl Scouts with the hope of introducing girls to the opportunities available to them in these fields. Camp is valued at $450. However, Fast Enterprises covers the entire cost as part of their commitment to increasing the number of women in tech. A $25 commitment fee is required at registration in order to reduce no-shows. This fee can be waived in cases of financial hardship.
