Event description
Black Girls CODE In-Person Summer Camp Detroit for Ages 13-17!

About this event

Overview

Our two week camp provides hands-on, project-based instruction, where campers ages 13-17 engage in tech instruction. The camp meets from 9AM-4PM with lunch, breaks, community building, field trips and of course coding! Our camps offer a space where girls can learn computer science and coding principles in the company of other girls, with mentorship from women they can see themselves becoming. 

Create applications, Open your mind to the ever changing world of tech, Design robotic systems, and Engineer innovative solutions. Students will be introduced to many applications of coding through mini projects. These projects will cover robotics, website development, app development, circuitry, and more! Students will work together to develop solutions to real-world problems while using fun technology. No experience is required to participate in this camp. Students will need a laptop and access to the internet to participate in the camp.

The Vision 

Technology shapes everyone’s lives all over the world and will only continue to expand, therefore, everyone should have an opportunity to shape and create it. We want to make sure that Black girls and girls of color are not only included in this tech revolution but are prepared to take on leadership roles within this field and/or start their own STEM organizations for social good.

Covid-19 Protocols

Black Girls CODE is excited to return to limited in-person events. As an organization, we continue to uphold COVID safety standards as recommended by the Center for Disease Control and local guidance. As standards change and updates are made available, we will continue to inform and update our camper families with the most accurate information. If we postpone an in-person camp location due to Covid, we will shift to a virtual model with the same dates. The following protocols define our approach to encouraging and maintaining a safe learning environment.

  • Equipment and touch points will be wiped down on a regular basis throughout the day.
  • All supplies and equipment will be provided for use by individual campers.
  • All meals and snacks will be provided for each camper. There will be no sharing of food.
  • Families are required to complete a symptom checker form daily and submit it by 7:30AM. Campers/their family showing symptoms will not be able to attend.
  • Masks are mandatory in buildings and in outdoor spaces when physical distancing is difficult.
  • Campers will be divided into small learning pods. Each pod will have a set group of adults (tech instructor, tech assistant, classroom assistant and junior camp counselor) who support camper learning.
  • Physical distancing will be maintained for all activities.
