Greetings from College of DuPage!


Thank you for your interest in the GADgET Girls summer camp!

The camp schedule has been finalized, and registration is now open!


GADgET Girls

Girls Adventuring in Design, Engineering & Technology


This one-week camp is designed to introduce girls, ages 11 to 14, to design and manufacturing processes, brought to you by the Youth Academy and Manufacturing Technology department. This camp will encourage creativity, self-confidence and innovation by introducing students to design and manufacturing processes and equipment. Students will be able to complete their own projects through guided instruction and will have the opportunity to explore career paths in manufacturing and engage with women currently working in the field. Students should bring a sack lunch each day. There will be at least one field trip to a local manufacturing facility during the camp.


Monday to Friday, July 8 to 12

10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

YEEXC-0002-100, $239

Technical Education Center (TEC), Room 0014


There is a limited capacity for this camp due to the number of workstations available in the manufacturing lab. We highly recommend registering as early as possible to ensure a spot is available for your child.


You may register online at or over the phone with our registration staff at (630) 942-2208. When registering online, click on “Continuing Education Classes” on the right side of the screen, then choose “Youth Classes (Grades K-8)” on the right side.


Once capacity has been met, a waitlist will be started. To be added to the waitlist, please call our registration staff at the number listed above.


We hope to see you this summer!
