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.

To reduce the spread of COVID-19, Tech Trek 2020 was offered online with volunteers delivering hands-on STEM kits to campers who participated July 18-24 in 2021. During the ongoing pandemic, our volunteers did not select new campers in 2021 or 2022.

AWCO and AAUW New Jersey will invite alumni from prior years’ camps to Stockton University for two distinct STEMinist camps:

  • 2020 STEMinist Reunion Sunday July 24-Wednesday July 27, and
  • 2015-2019 STEMinist Reunion Thursday, July 28-Saturday July 31
