Curious Jane – summer camps for girls. Samantha writes –

What we do
We run summer camps for girls! Curious Jane is a dynamic after-school and day camp program for elementary school aged girls. We offer highly-creative, project-based activities that encourage open-ended problem-solving. Our programs give girls the opportunity to explore design, building, and science in a positive, gender affirming environment. Girls attend for single or multiple weeks, and each week they choose their favorite “theme” — popular options include: Toy Design, Story Arts, Life Science, DIY Fashion, ‘Zine Scene, Building Workshop and Wired 101.

Where we run camp
Curious Jane has grown quickly — moms and girls have received us with gusto. In our first summer – we ran 78 camp sessions of Curious Jane. Now entering our fourth summer, we will run 1300 sessions of Curious Jane. We have expanded from our first Brooklyn location to 10 other schools in New York City and beyond (Boston, New Orleans, Philadelphia and Naples, FL). We have also added after-school programs and specialty workshops.

Who we are
At our core, we are a close-knit group, passionate about gender-affirming opportunities and creative, project-based learning. Our office of 4 core administrators is based in Brooklyn, NY, and our after-school and summer camp team swells to almost 100 fabulous females.

A bit about me
Samantha is a mother of two girls and lives in Brooklyn, NY. She holds her BA from Yale and Masters in Industrial Design from Pratt. She was inspired to create Curious Jane to give her girls, and all girls, a chance to be creative and inventive in a high-energy, collaborative and gender-affirming space. She loves designing, tinkering and figuring out!

Ladyada will be doing a talk at this camp over the summer, we’ll post up the date(s) soon!
