Tech Trek New Jersey follows national AAUW guidelines for recruiting campers. New Jersey’s camp is open to girls in counties where AAUW members have volunteered to participate.
In 2016, nominations were accepted from Atlantic, Burlington, Camden, Cape May, Cumberland, Essex, Mercer, Middlesex, Monmouth, Morris, and Passaic Counties.
For our 2017 camp, nominations were accepted in all 21 counties in NJ, since at least two volunteers were found to interview candidates in each county!
