不。 申请参加夏令营不需要护照。However, participants will need a passport and potentially need a visa in order to travel to the host countries, once accepted.
Between 70 – 100 campers at each camp.
Camp participants and young adult counselors will stay in dormitory style housing onsite. Each counselor will be responsible for a group of 10 counselors. Camp staff will be composed of staff by Girl Up at all camps. All staff staying overnight on the camp premises are required to undergo a background check.
此外，培训人员以及来自谷歌和英特尔等私营合作伙伴的工作人员会在白天参与进来，教授 STEAM 课程。 还有其他导师和演讲嘉宾（包括政府官员）也会来营地访问，与夏令营的参与者交流互动。
