Do you like art and writing? Are you into STEM? Would you like to learn new creative skills? Then join us at the Octavia Project!

The Octavia Project Summer Camp is a FREE summer camp for young women and trans, nonbinary, and/or gender non-conforming youth who will be in grades 6-8 next school year. Together we will create, explore, build, and have FUN in daily workshops that combine science, tech, art, and writing. We’ll also go on field trips that explore art & STEM in NYC. Whether you like to write stories, draw comics, or game, the Octavia Project welcomes you!

The Octavia Project Summer Camp is held in person in Downtown Brooklyn. Our Summer Camp runs for four weeks in July, four days a week (Mon.-Thurs.). Our camp is 100% free and includes breakfast, lunch, healthy snacks, and MetroCards to get to and from all workshops.
