Girls Empowered in Medicine and Science (GEMS) is a day camp and mentorship program for 6th, 7th, and 8th grade girls formed in partnership with the Center for Excellence and Youth Education (CEYE). Our goal is to serve as a support network and safe discussion space for young girls to develop meaningful interpersonal relationships, promote resiliency, cultivate leadership, improve team-building skills, and learn about STEM career pathways while applying those skills in practical and real-life settings.
GEMS camps will resume in the summer and fall of 2021!

Our day camps are run by female medical and graduate students at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai.
The program will include a variety of discussion activities, workshops, and team-building exercises. There will also be fun hands-on clinical and science activities (think…dissections, strawberry DNA extraction, ultrasound, first aid, anesthesia simulator, and more!).
Every camp will be different, so girls are encouraged to apply for multiple sessions.
Check back soon for future dates! GEMS camps will resume in the summer and fall of 2021.
Note: This is not a weekly program.
