Create & Innovate this Summer at STEM Camps!


Summer time is all fun and games until you get bored 5 minutes into your break from school. Who wants to sit home all summer long? Not us! If you’re like us, you’re always looking for something new to explore or experience. Our brains are just wired that way. But what is there to do?

Don’t worry – Girl Scouts has got you covered! Join us for jam packed days filled with all the STEM activities your heart (and mind) desires. From natural world to virtual reality, STEM day camps at the Girl Scout Leadership Center let you dig deep, dream big, and reach the stars. Plus, we’ve even expanded our STEM offerings to Camp Wai Lani.  We’ll bring you into the world of creators, innovators, scientists, engineers, naturalists, astronomers, physicists, and so much more. 

Today we’re highlights a few of our favorite STEM camps happening this summer. Overall we have seven STEM Day Camps this summer five at the Leadership Center in Tampa and two at Camp Wai Lani in Palm Harbor.
