App Camp for Girls is a one-week summer day program where girls, transgender & gender non-conforming youth can put their creative powers to work designing and building apps. They also learn about the business of software while being inspired by role models in the industry.

About Us

OUR MISSION
Inspiring and empowering girls, transgender, and gender nonconforming youth to pursue careers in technology

OUR VISION
Gender equality in the technology industry.

App Camp For Girls seeks to address the gender imbalance in technology professions by inspiring middle-school age girls with a broad introduction to the process of app development, from brainstorming and designing ideas to building and pitching their apps. We believe that the experience of creating an app that runs on a device in one week can spark the enthusiasm that will propel girls to pursue further tech education. 

In addition, App Camp For Girls is a place for women in the tech community to come together, network, and provide mutual support in their endeavors to advance in the field of software development. We encourage and support our volunteers to continue their own education in programming and design.

The inaugural season of App Camp for Girls took place in Summer 2013 in Portland, Oregon. In 2018, we will hold sessions in Portland, Seattle, Chicago and Minneapolis. We've worked with 225 aspiring developers and over 70 mentor volunteers in over the last five summers! Check out Four Summers In One Minute to see them all.
