Abstract: Camp Reach is a two-week summer engineering enrichment program for seventh grade girls, with continuing mentoring, communications, and activities for participants as they advance from seventh grade through high school. Camp Reach was founded in 1997 and the selection of participants has been designed to allow for longitudinal studies to evaluate the long-term effects of the program. This paper will present the main features of Camp Reach, the methodology used to perform the longitudinal studies, relevant results and a summary of lessons learned.
