SAGE Camp is the first step in a student’s SAGE Journey – a path to exploring exciting careers that impact the world and is supported by the SAGE community via post-camp events and programs. SAGE Camp at SLAC is one of three SAGE Camps at National Labs in the Bay Area and one of six SAGE Camps at National Labs in the country.

SAGE Journey


In conjunction with the Department of Energy National Laboratories, SAGE aims to broaden participation of women in STEM and foster creativity and innovation for continued scientific and technological leadership.

SAGE Camp at SLAC promotes diversity, equity, and inclusion and seeks to eliminate barriers that are faced based on gender, race, national origin, ethnicity, age, religion, sexual orientation, disability, handicap, or intelligence.

Consistent with Stanford University’s Accessibility Policy, SAGE Camp invites students who need special accommodations to contact us upon acceptance to the Camp.

During SAGE Camp, students will:

  • Gain exposure to the wide range of career possibilities that will make a difference in communities across the world
  • Experience how careers are enhanced by the exploration of a variety of interests in art, music, athletics, creative writing, travel, and many more while applying observation, interpretation, and analytic skills
  • Meet women at National Laboratories at various stages of their career, connect with STEM professionals and fellow students, find people with similar interests, and discover new interests
  • Join the SAGE Community and learn about the support and guidance that this community can provide to students as they explore their goals in education, work, and life


SAGE Camp at SLAC is supported by the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation, SLAC Lab Director, the Office of High Energy Physics within the Office of Science of the Department of Energy, as well as the many SLAC and Stanford volunteers.
