Welcome to IGGPPCamp!

Our 8th annual camp will take place August 12 – August 15, 2021!

IGGPPCamp is an online camp run by the IGGPPC [International Geek Girl Pen Pals Club]. For one long weekend during August, we all get together online and do lots of fun things – including watching movies together, making s’mores, playing games on Discord, telling ghost stories, learning new things through awesome video tutorials, making friendship bracelets, building forts, and so much more. Think online convention meets scout-camp! Not sure what Camp is or how to join in? Check out our Camp FAQ page.
