PACER’s mission of EX.I.T.E. Camp is to empower middle school girls with disabilities in the fields of STEM (science, technology, engineering and math). 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 2018, PACER Center collaborated with community partners for the 16thconsecutive year to present a camp specifically for middle school girls with disabilities. Technology experts, scientists, and engineers from Accenture, C.H. Robinson, IBM, Medtronic and 3M gathered for five days in August and generously donated their talents, resources, and insight to inspire middle school girls with disabilities.

The 2018 EX.I.T.E. Camp was sponsored with generous donations from Boston Scientific, The Donaldson Company, ECMC Foundation, Minneapolis Foundation, The Women’s Foundation, Xcel Energy, and 3M Company. The 2019 EX.I.T.E. camp will bring similar experiences.
