POSTPONED until July 18 – 24, 2021

(To be held virtually – for 2020 girls)

(Virtual Camp with Hands-on Kits July 18 – 24, 2021)

The 2020 Tech Trek camp had been rescheduled for summer 2021. Campers were interviewed and ranked. It had been decided that the camp will be held virtually in 2021.  Funds have been held by the Atlantic Women’s Charitable Organization (AWCO) for the rescheduled camp.

The plan was to have additional Campers selected for a separate 2021 camp.  This program is on hold.

2020 Camp: July 26- August 1, 2020

POSTPONED until July 18 – 24, 2021

This year, The Tech Trek planning Team needs each branch that sends girls in their communities to commit to the following:

  1. Select an interview Chair for your branch/county/area (can be combined branches and/or chairs). County Chair(s) will:
    1. Recruit volunteers to conduct interviews including supporting the nominees through the process of providing follow up with schools, teachers, and parents to ensure paperwork is submitted by deadlines.
    2. Maintain parent contact information for future meetings and camper appearances.  Notification of requests and interactions with campers will be made to the Tech Trek leadership Team before campers/parents are contacted in accordance with POM.
  2. Provide at least one volunteer during camp week to help with daily needs. This includes day counselors and dorm moms. We provide overnight accommodations and meals for all volunteers. Also, we always need help “packing out” camp on the last day, which will be Saturday, August 1, 2020.
  3. Provide monetary support through one of the following:
    1. Branch Fundraiser
    2. Writing a grant; for example, an AAUW Community Grant, NJ Charitable Trust, businesses/organizations. We provide templates and boilerplate text.
    3. Donations to the AAUW NJ Charitable Trust
  4. Provide any additional support a camper from your area may need. Examples: helping to coordinate transportation, lending a sleeping bag, camp supplies or other expenses.
