Waterloo LogoWATERLOO (July 28, 2016)–The University of Waterloo is hosting a free camp for Indigenous girls in grades 7 or 8 and their caregiver on August 11-13, 2016.

The IMPACT Girls’ Summer Camp is a two-and-a-half day, post-secondary education awareness camp hosted at St. Paul’s University College in Waterloo, Ontario.

The goal of the IMPACT Girls Summer Camp is to promote post-secondary education awareness and build confidence in girls to consider a career in the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) fields.

By building awareness of post-secondary options while incorporating cultural teachings and practices, camp participants develop the confidence to pursue greater goals while being encouraged and supported by their caregivers in a fun environment!

Some activities include: a visit to the University of Waterloo’s Dinosaur Museum, a scavenger hunt, and cultural teachings. As the event camp is quickly approaching, make sure to register as soon as possible to secure spot in the camp.
