Our Mission

The mission of EX.I.T.E. Camp is to empower middle school girls in the fields of math, science, and engineering. EX.I.T.E. Camp provides a safe and supported environment for hands-on learning as well as a place to meet new friends and create lasting memories.

In 2015, PACER Center collaborated with community partners for the 13th consecutive year to present a camp specifically for middle school girls with disabilities. Technology experts, scientists, and engineers from Accenture, IBM, Medtronic, Target and 3M gathered for five days in August and generously donated their talents, resources, and insight to inspire middle school girls with disabilities.

The 2015 EX.I.T.E. Camp was sponsored with generous donations from Boston Scientific, the Donaldson Company, the ECMC Foundation, Xcel Energy, and 3M Company. The 2016 EX.I.T.E. camp will bring similar experiences.
