The App Camp for Girls summer camp was founded in 2013 to encourage more young girls to take up computer programming (see “Nonprofit App Camp for Girls Launches Fundraiser,” 5 June 2013). After growth peaked a few years ago (see “App Camp for Girls Rocks Macworld/iWorld,” 11 April 2014), App Camp’s board of directors has announced that it will not be holding camps this summer, due to a too-low number of sign-ups. In some ways, App Camp for Girls is a victim of its own success—there are now numerous summer camps and other programs aimed at teaching kids to code, including Apple’s Everyone Can Code initiative.
