Volunteer Help And Support
We need volunteers to assist with running the camps, teaching students, updating the camp course curriculum, fundraising, and marketing. Our biggest and most challenge endeavor is an "end of summer camp" trip to Silicon Valley for select Jr. & Sr. Engineering students, chaperons, and camp administrators.
