SAGE STEAM Camp Supporters

Any level of support helps!

All support is needed to ensure that students from across Oklahoma have the opportunity to experience the SAGE STEAM Camp at SWOSU. Monetary and in-kind contributions provide the SAGE STEAM camp with the resources to offer high quality educational opportunities to middle-school-aged students.  Your support also enables former campers to return as mentors when they are in high school, plus affords stipends and scholarships to college-aged counselors who ensure the safety and promote the personal and professional growth and development of campers.

IMPORTANT NOTICE:  The 2020 SAGE STEAM Camp at SWOSU is postponed until summer 2021. The outstanding group of young women who were supposed to be 2020 campers will be invited to attend the full week of camp in 2021.  The funds generously donated by 2020 sponsors will be carried over to benefit these students in 2021.  SAGE STEAM is planning to select new campers for the 2021 camp to keep on track in providing this experience to middle school students.  Therefore, additional support will be needed to help to fund the proposed 2021 “mega-camp,” which may serve up to 80 students across Oklahoma.

 Funding Graphs

Ways to Give:

Monetary Donation

Approximately $1,100 per camper (which includes the $200 camper registration fee) is needed to ensure the best possible camp experience.  Funding is needed to remove socioeconomic barriers, thus enabling students from diverse backgrounds to have the opportunity to experience STEAM.

Supplies & Camp Necessities

School and art supplies are needed to make SAGE STEAM Camp a success.  We can always use: pens, pencils, highlighters, colored pencils and markers, sharpies, sticky notes, journals, water bottles, pencil holders, team bandanas, small flashlights, luggage tags, ponchos, etc.

Volunteers

In addition, we are seeking volunteers to donate their time and expertise to present a workshop or on-site activity (see: Be a Part of Camp) and to identify Oklahoma students to become campers (see: How to Become a Camper).  Volunteers also serve as role models – campers are able to meet a person who has a successful career in a STEAM-related field that, prior to camp, they had not thought was possible, or had not even know about.
