How to Become a Camper?
Tech Trek strives to identify thirty outstanding girls across the state of Oklahoma who are interested in math and science. The following process will be used to help us find such young women who may not otherwise have this unique learning opportunity:
- Girls currently in the 7th grade are nominated by their Middle School Teachers - due 2/22/13 3/1/13
- Girls then receive and fill out a camper application – due 3/8/13 3/29/13
- Thirty campers are chosen and notified by 4/19/12
- Girls send in $50 non-refundable reservation fee and camp forms – due 5/3/13
- Girls have the most fantastic week ever – July 14-20, 2013
