Any level of support helps!

The Southwest Alliance for Girls’ Enrichment in Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Humanities, and Mathematics (SAGE STEAM) Camp at SWOSU is a unique summer camp for middle school-aged students. Including the $200 camper reservation fee, approximately $1,100 per camper is needed to ensure the best possible camp experience. Monetary donations as well as donated items are greatly appreciated; examples include: pens, pencils, highlighters, colored pencils and markers, sharpies, sticky notes, journals, water bottles, pencil holders, team bandanas, small flashlights, luggage tags, ponchos, etc. 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). Support is needed to remove socioeconomic barriers, thus enabling students from diverse backgrounds to have the opportunity to experience STEAM.
