A week-long non-credit camp that provides girls in rising 6th-8th grades an opportunity to explore the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Each day will focus on one concentration. Women working in these fields will host lectures each morning and campers will spend the afternoons participating in hands-on activities related to the day’s topic. Tours of pertinent facilities will also be conducted throughout the week.
The cost for residential students is $500. It covers program fee and materials, housing, and meal plan.
The cost for commuter students is $350. It covers program fee, materials and lunch.
Limited funds are available to assist students who cannot meet the cost of the program. Aid is based on students who have a financial need and is only awarded to residential students. If you think you may be eligible for aid, have your parent or guardian complete this scholarship application.
Students who choose to be residential are housed in campus residence halls with males and females being housed separately. Only students attending our summer programs are housed in these dorms during the summer. Students may request to room with a friend as long as both parties submit the same request. Students accepted to the program will be housed separately. Adult staff as well as selected student counselors who serve as mentors to the participants will supervise them.

Students requiring non-emergency medical care between the hours of 9 a.m. and 7 p.m. will be transported to an urgent care facility with parent’s approval. There is not an after hours medical clinic in Oxford, so students requiring medical care after 7 p.m. and before 9 a.m. are transported to the emergency room at Baptist Memorial Hospital-North Mississippi again with parent’s approval.

Online Registration Step-By-Step
We value the safety and well-being of all our participating students. In case emergency medical attention is required, ALL Pre-College Program camps require parents to submit medical forms on behalf of the student. Please DO NOT forget to return this form to the Pre-College Programs office as this will hold up the registration process for your student. If you have already submitted the medical form to the Office of Pre-College Programs for a camp this summer, you will not have to submit it again.
Registrations may be cancelled up to two weeks prior to the selected week for an 80% refund. Refunds are not available if cancellation occurs less than two weeks prior to the selected week.
