GovState’s Youth Camps engage youth to become tomorrow’s innovators through extensive interaction with highly seasoned instructors, field practitioners, GovState students, alumni, and representatives from various businesses and industries. Activity tutorials, experiments, field activities, project-based learning, field trips, and hands-on presentations are organized on a fun and structured schedule. Our mission is to encourage students to envision themselves in STEAM careers.

Currently, GovState's STEAM Camp program operates sessions in winter and summer.
