About App Camp For Girls

App Camp For Girls is a place where girls, transgender and gender non-conforming youth can put their creative power to work, conceptualizing and building apps, while learning more about the business of software and being inspired by role models who are professional software developers. When youth see how fun and creative app development can be, they'll be more likely to pursue a career in software development and technology. The inaugural season of App Camp for Girls took place in the summer of 2013 in Portland, Oregon. In Summer 2018, our sixth year of operations, camp sessions will be held in Portland, Seattle, Chicago, and Minneapolis. Middle school girls, transgender and gender non-conforming youth can apply now!
