    Overview

    "Breaking the Code” is a weeklong coding, filmmaking, and leadership camp that is held over school breaks or the summer. This is a great opportunity to learn more about what programmers do and what kinds of careers could be open to girls interested in computer science or STEM fields.

    Girl Scouts of Greater New York is hosting a camp called “Breaking the Code” that is a weeklong coding, filmmaking, and leadership camp that is held over school breaks or the summer. This is a great opportunity to learn more about what programmers do and what kinds of careers could be open to girls interested in computer science or STEM fields.

    We are hosting these camps at both Microsoft and Google and girls will have a chance to have a conversation with current employees on what they do and how they got there. They’ll also have a chance to use their voice and learn about advocacy and film their very own public service announcement! Previous topics for PSA’s have covered everything from ocean pollution, diversity in beauty standards, and animal abuse.

    The camps are open to 6th-12th grade girls and part of this amazing program is that it is not only open to Girl Scout members, but non-members as well. We highly encourage girls to bring a friend to attend camp with them! We want to use this opportunity to reach out to girls who may not be in a troop or who have never had an experience with the Girl Scouts.

    We would really love for girls to join us!
