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.


First App Camp Session: Success!!

Jean MacDonald

During the week of June 24 - 28, twelve very smart, creative girls came to App Camp For Girls to take part in our beta session. Tuition was waived for this week, and instead, the girls agreed to be "guinea pigs" for this brand new program to teach app development in one week.

It was a great experience for everyone involved. The campers learned how to brainstorm apps, how to wireframe their ideas and design icons and interfaces, how to work in Xcode to build apps and deploy them to a device, and how to pitch their app ideas and think about marketing them.

We have lots of photos posted here. We are also now on Instagram, if you want to follow us.

We have started making plans for the August 19 - 23 session. We'll be finalizing our camper list by July 14.
