  • Please keep in mind that ALL your application materials (including your teacher recommendation) must be submitted in order for your application to be reviewed.
  • Admissions are done on a first completed, first-served basis. There is a chance that your camp of choice may be full at the time of your application’s consideration.
    • If this happens, you will be placed on a waiting list for your first choice camp and will be considered for your second or third choice camp. Therefore, we recommend submitting your full application as soon as possible.
  • Applications will be accepted until camps are full. We will announce when the applications become full on our website.
  • For those needing financial assistance to attend GAMES camp, please apply early as Women in Engineering has limited financial aid available.

  • The name and email address of one teacher who will be submitting your teacher recommendation,
    • Using the teacher email address that is provided, the recommendation form will automatically be sent to the teacher to complete.

  • A list of coursework in math and science from the last two years (including grades),

Step 2

You will receive a confirmation email when your application has been received.  It is important to remember, however, that your application will not be considered “complete” until we have received your teacher’s online recommendation form.  You will also receive a confirmation email when we have received your teacher’s recommendation.

Step 3

You will be notified of your acceptance to camp after your application is considered “complete” and our office has thoroughly reviewed applications.  If admitted to the camp, you will be asked to register and submit a $50 deposit along with your registration.
